A Dietitian Explains How to Cut Back on Added Sugar

Wake-Up Call: What motivated you to write this book?

You have a segment in the book called the “Sugar Hall of Shame,” in which you identify foods particularly high in added sugar. There are some obvious ones, like soda, but can you discuss some foods that may come as a surprise to people?

You also discuss why we’re wired to crave sugar. What causes that and can the added stress of the pandemic make those cravings worse?

Can you provide some strategies for fighting cravings and slowly weaning yourself off of added sugar?
