Health Alert WEB EXCLUSIVE: "Five Steps to a Healthier You!"

Question: Should we eliminate sugar from our diets entirely?

Answer: No, however as Americans, we are all guilty of eating too much sugar. Luckily, you can still make treats that satisfy your sweet tooth and cut back on your sugar intake at the same time. Try a different recipe, change the ingredients or take smaller proportions. Bake low-sugar treats to satisfy sweet tooth. Cutting back in the smallest way can make a big difference. For instance, you can make your own sauces and salad dressings, avoid snacks and juices with added flavors, and keep less sugary treats in the house.
