Since the beginning of this blog, we have talked about sugar….
But it turns out that we have never actually have talked about the negative affects of sugar on your body. We partnered with the people at Retro Goblin to create this video to inform people about what sugar does on your body.
So that explains what sugar does to your body. Again a big thanks to Retro Goblin for partnering with us to create this video!
Have you ever chugged down a bottle of whipped cream?
Well, if you looked at “The Secret Behind Whipped Cream” whipped cream might not be good for you but, there is only 6.5 grams of sugar in a whole bottle of whipped cream. But do not chug down whipped cream on a regular basis or you might have some problems….
At least you are not having as much sugar as a box of Cocoa Krispies. That has 25 grams of sugar.

Do you remember the video we shared with you in January 2013?
It disturbingly shared that drinking one 12 ounce soda a day will make you 10 pounds fatter each year! If you don’t here’s a link to the video. Well, the creators, the New York City Department of Health, have just released this video, check it out:
Could you imagine walking 3 miles just to burn off the calories of a 20 ounce can of soda! That’s a lot of walking.
Considering that portion sizes have been getting bigger and bigger — especially in restaurants where most of the time you can refill your soda for free — you should think twice about what you are drinking… unless you like walking!

Watch this video that we found. It has some great statistics about the sugar that is killing us.
A shocking statistic from the video is that 80% of the foods you eat have high fructose corn syrup. That means 8 out of every 10 things you eat have added sugar.

Do you drink soda every day?
If you do, think again. One soda a day for a whole year can make you 10 pounds fatter.
Still not convinced that sugars are in everything? Then watch this video.
This video is about an edible tablet that has zero grams of sugar is supposed to make sour things sweet. That is amazing!
We all enjoy sweet things, but sometimes sugary food is not healthy for us. This video shows us a pill that will change your taste buds so that sour things taste sweet. Now instead of eating sugary foods, we can trick our taste buds into thinking sour foods are sweet.
One of the only problems is the price, and the amount of times you would have to eat it to keep things sweet. Also, someone might get addicted to the tablet. Those are the only problems that we came up with that could affect your body or mind. I think the fact that a tablet can make a non-sugary food taste sweet without adding sugar is incredible!

Do You Know How Much Sugar You Are Eating?
Be careful about how much sugar you eat every day! Even things that you would think are healthy, are unhealthy in some way. For example a serving (6oz) of Yoplait Yogurt has 26g of sugar!

Does the world really need more airheads?
The answer, obviously, is no. Two 1-ounce airheads 31.8 grams of sugar. At the end of the Airhead commercial above, it says that we need more Airheads.
But really, WE DON’T!
