Sugar Facts

1. When your body has all of the energy that it needs from sugar, it converts the excess into fat and stores it. That is one of the reasons why people gain weight.

2.Since sugar doesn't provide anything but energy it is often referred to as having "empty calories." It does not contain any vitamins or minerals that your body requires.

3.Even though it is recommended that a female not consume more than 54 grams of sugar in one day, just one can of cola can have more than 35 grams of sugar.

4.The average American consumes about 40 pounds of sugar a year.

5.Even though they might taste sour, lemons actually contain more sugar content than strawberries
