Default Sugar

Are you watching your sugar intake?
I am starting to think I need to become a certified nutritionist to keep track of all of this.

Sowe are supposed to count calories
fat grams and...
sugar grams
Which should be 10% of your total calories for the day or 20 per 1000 calories. So if you are on a 1600 calorie a day diet you get about 32 grams of sugar. Seems like a lot, but one glass of non-fat milk has 13 grams and 1 non-fat yogurt has 14 grams.
 

So I am quickly coming to realize what is wrong with my eating. I was reading a very interesting article in a magazine that explained how addicting sugar is, and how it actually makes you think you are hungry by giving you these major spikes and drops in your blood sugar. So I am trying to watch my sugar intake now.
It would be so nice if I could just hire a chef to make me yummy foods that were the right nutrition value.

I totally agree about the certified nutritionist thing!! I can't keep it all straight! I've been a "dieter" for years and during that time, came across several articles that stated, "watch your caloric intake", then they said "watch your fat grams", then watch out for sugar- and salt. Oh and preservatives and additives. We can't forget those! LOL Shopping for food takes twice as long because I have to stop and read all the labels first!

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that many non-fat items put more sugar in to make up for the taste lost in taking out fat. That non-fat yogurt might be a bad idea, afterall!
