Sugar Quiz

Taken from Nancy Appleton’s ‘Lick The Sugar Habit’ book.

“Are you a sugarholic? Is your body giving you any signals?

The following quiz will help you determine how pervasive refined sugar is in your lifestyle, and what effect it is having on your body. Refined sugar includes sucrose, honey, fructose, glucose, dextrose, levulose, maltose, raw sugar, turbinado sugar, maple sugar, galactose, brown sugar, dextrine, barley malt, rice syrup, corn sweetener, and corn syrup. All of these are simple sugars. They take very little time to digest and get into the blood stream, where they perform the same disturbance to your body chemistry as table sugar. These substances are found in donuts, processed foods, jams and jellies, ice cream, candy bars, packaged cereals, soft drinks, ketchup, beer, chewing gum, and any product that lists sugar among its ingredients.”
