New Dietary Guidelines Remind Us That Sugar Is Bad

The new Dietary Guidelines have several changes. One is about the dietary cholesterol limit. Instead of setting a strict limit, the new guidelines state: “Individuals should eat as little dietary cholesterol as possible […. Since] foods that are higher in dietary cholesterol, such as fatty meats and high-fat dairy products, are also higher in saturated fats.”

Another change (and one that we couldn’t agree more on) is on sugar. The latest Dietary Guidelines tell us one thing: eat less sugar… Yes, lesser than what we are regularly consuming. In fact, the new guidelines recommend we limit our sugar intake to less then 10% of our daily calories, that’s about 12 teaspoons on a 2000-calorie diet. Take note that this is not even close to the goal of six teaspoons set by the World Health Organization. 

So what can we do about this? Nobody wants to eat bland food, right?

The good news is there are alternatives! Such as You Are Loved Foods’ WeLuvYa sweetener. It’s natural, has zero calories, and is 15 times sweeter than sugar! It works well for coffee, juices, and even baking. What’s more, You Are Loved Foods also offer decadent, delicious, truly paleo food with less sugar like cupcakes and granola.

We don’t have to completely deprive ourselves of the foods that make us happy. Instead, let's find the kind with healthier ingredients. Because we deserve to eat the food we love, and have them love us too!
