The Danger of Hidden Sugar in Our Diets

By Sally Cameron on October 18, 2012

food for thought,


As sugar consumption in America skyrockets, so have lifestyle-related diseases like obesity, diabetes and heart disease. It’s clear: consuming too much sugar can have severe health consequences. Sugar quietly and dangerously hides in our diets, masked by many names. We need to seek out the hidden sugars in our diets to make healthier choices and live healthier lives. To do that, we must know the names sugar hides by.

To read my entire post, please visit Eating Rules, published by my friend Andrew Wilder. It’s part of the special series in October about eating unprocessed. Here is the link to my guest post. If you comment on Eating Rules, I’d appreciate it if you’d comment here too for everyone to read.

Until now, the focus of my posts have been about food, cooking, and healthy recipes, ingredients and techniques. It’s been about inspiring you to get into the kitchen and cook.

Health, nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle have always been part of what drives my passion for cooking, my recipes and what I share with you…but there is much more that I want to share.  I am completing my certification to be a holistic health coach and this seems like the perfect time.

Starting today you will begin to see a new category of articles on A Food Centric Life. These new posts will be more focused on nutrition, healthy living and health-related topics to help you make better choices and live healthier lives. My goal is to publish these articles during the week, with recipes being published on Sunday or Monday.

Most people today are too busy to keep up with the constant onslaught of new information regarding health and nutrition. My goal is to be a resource – the place where you can read about the hot topics of today and gain insight to improve your health.

Please let me know how you enjoy these new articles and if they are helpful. And if there is anything you’d like me to write about, please drop me a note.

For today, check out my guest post on Eating Rules.

Thank you so much for this. I’m a writer from Davis Creek, Australia and what you’ve said here on could not be said much better. Going through this
post kinda reminds me of my first roomie, Estela. He persistently kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this information to him. I’m certain he will have a good time reading this. I am grateful to you you for sharing this.
