Sugar, Sugar Everywhere

And the answer is:  22.7 teaspoons/day

 

And the question was:  what is the actual amount of sugar consumed daily by the average American?

 

Compare that to the recommended guidelines:

            women – 6 ½ teaspoons daily

            men – 9 ½ teaspoons daily

 

You know what’s scary?  22.7 teaspoons, or roughly ½ cup of sugar, doesn’t sound like a lot to me.

 

I must have a sugar problem.

 

Most of us Americans do.
