But sugar is something we all need to be more aware of both to help with weight maintenance and reduce our risk for developing diabetes. In children, it has been demonstrated that a reduction in added sugars to the diet can help with maintaining a healthy weight and improve overall nutrition (since daily calories are not being taken up by as much nutrient empty sugar).
One piece of good news the video does not explain is that your taste buds can be trained to prefer less sugar. Many of us eat large amounts of sugar on a regular basis and our tongue comes to expect the flavour. Taste buds turn over about every 2 weeks. So if you can stick it out on a lower sugar diet for two weeks you will often find the high sugar products you used to love are almost overwhelming. So hang in there!
