The New York Times Is On To Something

Want to know how much sugar you eat each day?

Then you should go to this awesome interactive quiz by The New York Times. Basically what you can do is go through your daily foods and see how much added sugar you consume.

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.

When you stop by at McDonalds you might stop by and get a tasty treat: the McFlurry.

An average human is supposed to consume 24 grams of sugar a day. The McFlurry has 64 grams of sugar which is 2.5 times as much sugar all in one McFlurry! Whenever you stop at McDonald’s think twice about the sweet treat!

M&M RAMPAGE!!!

 

Who loves eating M&Ms? 

Well youshouldn’t anymore because one serving size of M&Ms is equal to 11.4 grams of sugar. So you’ve blown almost half a day’s worth of sugar. With how much sugar is in these things, they could give you diabetes like that (snap!).

So if I were you, I’d think twice before busting open a pack of M&MS. Hopefully the M&Ms won’t be too mad at you for not buying them at the store.

———————–

You leave the cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas, right? Do you ever wonder how much sugar he consumes?

Well, just three sugar cookies have 42 grams of sugar! Also, just one cup (8 fl.oz) of reduced fat milk (2% fat) has 12.3 grams of sugar! In total, that’s 54.3 grams of sugar!

Oh yeah: And Santa eats this at millions of houses a night!

Did you know that a 1.7 oz bag of M&M has 31 grams of sugar? 1.7 oz doesn’t seem like much, but it has 31 grams of sugar!  Next time, make sure you check the nutrition label!

Look at this picture. The amount of sugar in a Milky Way could fill up the whole bar.

#mindblown

We are starting a series of The Sugar Life posts. This Milky Way has 31 grams of sugar. Each cube has 2 grams of sugar.  That means this candy bar has 15 cubes of sugar in it.

Look at the image above. The sugar fills up the whole candy bar! Each post will include a picture of a common food and the amount of sugar cubes that would fill up that food. Tell us if you like this idea and if we could do something differently.
