When I was in high school my favorite breakfast was two Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts (sugar) washed down with a Sprite (more sugar). Not Sprite Zero. Regular ol’ Sprite. For a total of 670 calories! (And I wonder why I was not-so-pleasantly plump!).
I think it’s pretty obvious that sugar makes you fat. (I wish those smart NASA people would quit those silly plans to return to the moon and start working on important things … like a sugar that makes you skinny!). But a new study from Princeton University suggests high-fructose corn syrup makes you gain more weight than table sugar.
Truvia is a wonderful natural alternative to sugar. You might want to check it out if your still interested. Truvia is made from the leaves of the stevia plant. I myself am always looking for healthy alternatives. My blog[URL="http://paleohealthyeating.blogspot.com/"] is all about healthy eating. I am always studying gluten-free, sugar-free and low sodium recipes for the different members in my family who have those health issues related to different food issues. My daughter is gluten intolerant, my dad is diabetic with high blood pressure and high cholesterol just to name a couple of my family members.
