70% of the US Population Eat Way Too Much Sugar – Here’s Why

infographic1

The new guidelines for Americans recommend no more than ten percent of calories from added sugar. And 70% of people in the US eat more than that. The WHO even recommends below five percent added sugars – not many people manage that today.

What is the source of all that added sugar? It’s really quite simple: the largest sources are sugar-sweetened beverages, snacks and sweets – as you can see in this nice graphic. If you avoid all that you’ll probably stay under the five percent level.
