I came across this super interesting data; “In 1770, when sugar was only for the wealthy, the average American ate just 4 pounds of sugar a year. In 2018, the average American consumes over 160 pounds of sugar each and every year!”

What do you think is the difference between the sugar consumption number for an Indian middle class (SEC A and B) adult in 1950 and 2018? What about middle class kids?

I suspect the corresponding numbers for this cohort in India are nearly as bad as the American numbers, worse for many.

Sugar from beverages at home and outside.

Sugar from sweets, chocolates, icecreams, cakes, ice creams, desserts, biscuits, sugar from savory packaged foods(yes, most of them contain added sugar even if the food is salty).

Sugar from sweet packaged foods, sugar added to home cooked food and hot/cold drinks

Sugar from jaggery, honey, fruit juices, fruit

Protect your family and your children.

Your family and your children are at risk of cancer, diabetes and more.

Imagine yourself suffering from cancer, retching and bald due to chemotherapy. Imagine yourself with your foot amputated because a small scratch would not heal and became worse due to diabetes. Imagine being hooked up to a dialysis machine 3 times a week in a hospital because your kidneys have failed due to diabetes. Imagine the same for your children when they are in their 30s, 40s, 50s.

Is this what you want?

Figure out how to cut down your family’s sugar consumption by 90 percent or more.
