Read the labels on all the food you buy make it a habit. I think you might be very surprised on how many ingredients you do not know that are in you’re favorite foods.Also they are very sneaky when putting sugar on labels here are some of the names they use for sugar…
When starting out don’t just jump into no added sugar right away start off with small improvements and don’t stop till you fell amazing and its out of your life.
P.S . Start off first with cutting out high-fructose corn syrup it is just poison for your body
