I recently attended a sugar detox workshop by a friend who is a health coach. One of the many things I learnt was that sugar goes by many different names on food labels:
- Corn syrup
- Fruit juice concentrates
- High-fructose corn syrup
If any of the above appears in the ingredients list of your favourite food or beverage, then you are consuming sugar. Even though some sugars are less harmful than others, they are all high-calorie and must be avoided if you are concerned about weight management.
