KICK THE SUGAR HABIT
Unlike the sugars that naturally occur in fruits and milk, added sugars are used to increase sweetness of foods and beverages and provide no nutritional value. The average American gets about 270 calories from added sugar per day (almost 18 teaspoons of sugar). Nearly half of added sugars come from sugary drinks. For example, choose water in place of just one 12-ounce can of regular soda and you've eliminated about 10 teaspoons of added sugar.
