Are These "Healthy" Foods Worse For You Than A Doughnut?
As a whole we are actively consuming way too much sugar in our diets. The World Health Organization recently announced that we should reduce our intake of sugar to a measly 5 percent of our Daily Caloric Intake. For example, if you followed a 2000 calorie diet then your sugar intake would be 100 calories or less. As easy as that sounds if you are not actively tracking your food you could be consuming that amount just in your breakfast cereal. Here are 5 foods that are worse for you than a doughnut and the results may surprise you.
