Magic 24

When I found out that someone my age should have no more than 24 grams of sugar A DAY I thought they were asking me to abandon food all day everyday.

So my evil teacher Mr. Ferriter challenged me.

I had to go a full day without eating more then 24 grams of sugar.  He was trying to kill me!  The day of the challenge was easily the hardest and worst day of my life.  Because I couldn’t have cookies, sodas, Gatorade, and my most prized possession, an ice cream sundae!  But I managed to survive the day with only 12.5 grams of (added) sugar.

But that was only half of the experiment…  The next day I decided to find out how much added sugar I have in a usual day.

That day I had 198 grams of ADDED SUGAR!

That is 8 and 1/4 days worth of sugar! That day, I did have 3 cookies and a soda, but that isn’t completely insane for me.  Without the cookies and soda I would have (only)had 96 grams of sugar (4 days worth of sugar).
