They have a good variety of foods and it’s very accurate. It’s also mind blowing how much sugar there is in average foods. One of the coolest parts of this is that if you scroll down you see how you blew the sugar, you can see how much sugar is in each piece of food.
I had some members at Sugar Kills and Kiva try this and there was a big variety of amounts. Some had 10 grams, another had 46 grams, one even had as high as 151 grams of sugar! I personally got 25 grams of sugar, but something tells me that we all won’t follow that exactly.
Thanksgiving is approaching fast and I know that everyone is looking forward to one thing…
Black Friday! No, I’m joking, its Thanksgiving dinner. And we all know the highlight of the dinner is the Turkey. You may think that the Turkey doesn’t have any sugar in it and you would be correct. But what’s really the ticking time bomb of sugar is the cranberry sauce.
The thing that is always hard to spread over your Turkey has 21 grams of sugar per 1/4 cup (Serving Size). So next time that you reach for another serving of the sauce think twice before pouring the whole can all over your plate. Happy Thanksgiving!
In the flood of new energy drinks, it is hard to keep track of all the sugar in them. In this comparison, we will be comparing two of the most popular brands; Gatorade vs Powerade!
Let the fight begin!
In the red corner coming in with 56 grams of sugar, is Gatorade Thirst Quencher! In the blue corner coming in with 28 grams of sugar, is Powerade!
Both of them are over the daily recommended sugar amount of 24 grams, but it seems like in this case Powerade is the winner!
Hold on a second; Let’s broaden our searches for a second match, to Gatorade 02. This type of Gatorade has only 18 grams per bottle. So, Gatorade 02 will be the best for you if you are looking for the least sugar in your drink.
Have you ever been to Starbucks and wanted a tasty pastry to go with your coffee?
Starbucks has a array of pastry including chocolate croissants. The chocolate croissants at Starbucks has 10 grams of sugar wasting almost half your daily amount of sugar. Now ask yourself this question, how much sugar were you planing to eat today? How much sugar did you just have on your little ‘harmless’ stop to Starbucks?
Dying to have a nice, cool refreshment on a hot day?
Try to pick up something else besides a Coca Cola Classic Slurpee, because that has 27 grams of sugar in a 12 ounce bottle!! That’s your whole days worth of sugar blown away, and part of your next days’ worth too!
Unfortunately, one Klondike Bar has 23 grams of sugar. That’s just one gram short of the maximum recommended daily sugar intake. If you have this after dinner, you would have almost certainly exceeded your daily amount in just one sitting.
Chick-fil-a lemonade is sweet but has a lot of sugar. A medium Chick-fil-a cup of lemonade has 57.9 grams of sugar. That is how much sugar you are supposed to have in three days. I would not even drink the small cup of lemonade because it has 42.7 grams of sugar. So next time you’re at Chick-fil-a, maybe think twice about getting lemonade.
This McDonald’s sweet treat has 48 gramsof sugar. That’s the maximum you should have in two days. So, unless you’re willing to starve yourself for two days, don’t eat a McDonald’s hot fudge sundae. Make the right decision and pass on it.
