116 NOELLE TARR: “The Truth About Sugar”

Ahhhh, sugar. The one thing we all turn to when we’re happy, sad, depressed or anxious, tired, celebrating an occasion, and of course – when we deserve a reward. Why does this refined substance show up in our lives on so many occasions?

So begins Noelle Tarr’s provocative article “Five Things Sugar Is Stealing from Your Life.”  A health advocate and nutritionist, she graphically reveals how sugar is hidden in almost everything we consume. “Manufacturers have over 60 names to disguise sugar as an ingredient.”

A century ago, the average American consumed less than 4 pounds of sugar a year. Today, according to the USDA’s Economic Research Service, the average American consumes almost 3 pounds of sugar a week – a whopping 150 pounds of sugar annually. Put another way: that’s 76 Hostess cupcakes per week!

“I’m not here to demonize sugar,” she says, “but we’ve got to wake up in a big way.” Noelle’s site is www.coconutsandkettlebells.com. Join the conversation at www.getboldtoday.com
