how much sugar does the average american consume
Avoid your “high sugar” drinks and milk shakes.

Restaurant milk shakes often have between 800-1250 calories per share. (view menu)

One 12 ounce soft drink has as much as 50 grams of sugar (12.5 sugar cubes for a frame of reference.)

According to the National Soft Drink Association (NSDA), consumption of soft drinks is now over 600 12-ounce servings (12 oz.) per person per year. Since 1978, soda consumption in the US has
tripled for boys and doubled for girls. Young males age 12-29 are the biggest consumers at over 160 gallons per year—that’s almost 2 quarts per day. At these levels, the calories from soft drinks contribute as much as 10 percent of the total daily caloric intake for a growing boy. New evidence has shown an alarming rise in deficiencies of calcium and other minerals and resulting bone fractures in young girls.

When your body craves sugar, it's may be in need of raw unrefined sugar to meet your blood sugar needs. However, it NEVER needs white table sugar!! White sugar is highly refined and stripped of all nutrients. When you consume 'table sugar' it steals nutrients from your body to complete itself. This is why it's called an anti-nutrient, because it takes vital nutrients away from your body.
