Just recently I found an article called 6 Surprising Sources of Sugar. What really surprised me was this statistic: “On average Americans consume 475 calories of added sugar every day (that’s 30 teaspoons).”
Think about this: There are about 4 grams of sugar in a teaspoon. That means if you do the math, on average Americans consume 120 grams of sugar every day! If you are supposed to consume only 24 grams a day, that means you consume exactly 5 days of sugar every day.
Stated another way, the average American eats 5 TIMES the amount of sugar that they should every single day!
