by Nicole D’Uva, Senior Account Manager
Do you remember receiving candy hearts as a child? The sweet treat that contained an even sweeter message like, “Be Mine.” If you or a loved one receives an edible Valentine this year, pause and think about these eye-opening facts before taking the first bite.
A recent study revealed the average American consumes 19 teaspoons of sugar every day, the equivalent of 360 extra calories! By removing excess sugar from their diet, the average American could lose approximately 37.5 pounds in one year. In addition to increasing energy and bettering overall health, this simple strategy to reduce sugar could create a positive shift in our country’s obesity epidemic.
