Sugar; is it really toxic?

Learn about 4 foods I eat everyday here (click pic).

I love sugar!  Who doesn’t really?  Even if you think that you don’t, it’s probably in something that you’re eating.  Anything chocolate is my go-to choice treat and I have some sort of it nearly everyday.  But more recently there’s been so much conversation about sugar and the negative things it can do to your health, some of it being quite concerning.

Most people don’t realize that sugar isn’t found in just sweets alone, it’s in almost every food that we buy, so reading labels and keeping track of how much you’re consuming is essential.  As with everything at Skinny Healthy Girl, there’s nothing wrong with indulging mindfully, but I feel it’s important to share this list of the negatives effects sugar can have on your body when eaten in high quantities often.  Be aware, be smart.
