The dramatic increase of refined sugar consumption and starchy foods by Americans is very concerning. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American ate 5 pounds of sugar per year in 1900. In the year 2000, the estimated average sugar consumption per person was 163 pounds. That’s a 3,260 percent increase in 100 years! Our sweet tooth is definitely out of control.

Why is this sugar so bad for us?

Our body begins to experience problems when our fat cells and other cells become resistant to taking in energy from the bloodstream. This is called insulin resistance syndrome (IRS). This begins at a BMI of around 25 – 27 and intensifies with weight gain. At this pivotal point, an internal conflict between the bloodstream and the cells begins. They argue over what to do with the excess energy. In response to the failure of the glucose levels to drop, the pancreas makes more insulin, which pushes the cells harder, which leads to increased stress (and inflammation), which drives the development of diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes.
