Added sugars!!! They can taste so good, but yet be so bad for our health. And Americans have a huge love affair with added sugars, eating over twice the recommend amount of added sugars each and every day, according to the American Heart Association.

And it’s easy to understand why so many of us are having such a tough time kicking the added sugar habit, it’s in almost everything. In fact, according to information published in a June 2016 New York Times article about the impact sugar has on your health, added sugars can be found in almost 80 percent of the 600,000 food products for sale in store shelves in the U.S.

So just how bad are added sugars to your health? An article in Rodale Wellenss lists 11 things that some people might not even realize sugar could be doing to their bodies. For some, too much sugar can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and depression.

Now that we know it’s so bad for us, what can we do to avoid it? There’s lots of things but some of our favorites include subbing seltzer for soda. And if you’re someone that often craves a sugary crunch, try biting down on some celery or baby carrots instead.
