CNN article on sugar

  • Truth be told, I didn't really read the article, because, well, we know more about this than they do as a general rule. BUT, the visuals with this article are fantastic, especially to show to the people who are constantly trying to "replace sugar with apple juice" or ridiculous things like that. A carb is a carb!

  • Ok, I saw something similar to this a while back.  My big question (please point out if I am missing something)....why are they using things with no sugar added (fruit juice) when the WHO recommendation is only dealing with added sugars????  And yes, the visuals are really cool!

     <roflmao> I saw that photo and thought "That's why I never drink the frou-frou drinks at Starbucks. I'd much rather have a doughnut and regular coffee."

  • Earlyish on we discovered a medium banana and a glazed donut have about the same carbs....sure the banana is healthier but sometimes the donut is so much tastier

    I always render people speechless when I tell them in terms of BG levels only I would rather Kaelyn eat a cupcake rather than a banana. We fight highs with bananas always.
