Sugar seems to be everywhere, and most of us are consuming a lot more than we really should be. Why? Because they’re hidden in foods that most people wouldn’t expect. It’s not just desserts and sodas that we have to worry about. Some of these are even found in Paleo-friendly foods!
The current dietary guidelines suggest women limit daily sugar intake to 25 grams of sugar (6 tsp) and 36 grams for men (9 tsp). One large apple alone has 23 grams of sugar, so we really can’t afford all these “hidden” sugars.
Some obvious places that we’ll find sugars include cereal, we usually skip it when we’re eating Paleo, granola bars same story. Protein bars almost always have added sugar and a whole slew of other bad ingredients.
