As someone who has an insatiable need for sugar, I know first hand how good and dangerous it can be. My "love" (read: addiction) to sugar is a part of why I started eating healthy, if to avoid the fates of most of my friends who were being diagnosed with diabetes.

Guide to Sugar

We love sugar. We love it in our drinks and we love it in our food. And why not? Sugar tastes good! Cereals are loaded with it, we put itGuide to Sugar in our coffee, our tea, our flavored drinks; it's everywhere.

Here, we take a look at sugar - where it comes from, what it does to us and our bodies, and where we can find it. We'll also look at some healthy tips on how to maintain our sugar intake and how we can slowly (but surely) ease out of our addiction.
