Are you hanging on the cliff of a sugar mountain?
A Clif Bar Chocolate Chip Organic Energy Bar has a total of 23 grams of sugar. Even though the Clif Bar has that much sugar, it is still a good idea to have one if you are doing large amounts of physical activity in a short time.
When you have a lot of sugar at one time, you get a lot of energy for a short period of time, but it will soon run out and you will become tired. There are better options to get long lasting energy. Just like climbing a mountain, you go up, and then you come crashing down again. Don’t find yourself hanging on the Clif of sugar everyday.
