REDUCE YOUR SUGAR INTAKE the cost ?of eating too much sugar
Mom was right: Sugar does ruin your teeth. But she never said anything about your cash flow. If you're like the average American, you consume about 156 pounds of the stuff a year. At that rate, it's going to take more than a filling to undo the damage. Here's what satisfying your sweet tooth will cost you over the course of 12 months.
You get: Anti-wrinkle finishing serum to boost collagen production Because: Excess sugar attaches to blood proteins to form a collagen-killing substance that's aptly called "advanced glycation end-product," or AGE. You pay: $56
You get: A cardio bike with heart rate monitor Because: Your mojo's a no-go, since those extra pounds are stalling blood flow to that magic button--your clitoris. This fat melter will get your pelvic blood pumping again. You pay: $499
You get: A year's worth of cranberry juice (no sugar added, of course) Because: Studies show this potent potable shields your teeth the same way it does your urinary tract: by repelling bacteria that feed on residual sugar and cause cavities. You pay: $176
You get: Snazzy designer specs Because: You might be going blind, but at least you'll look trendy. Stocking up on sweets has been linked with the early onset of age-related macular degeneration. You pay: $354
You get: Therapeutic massages Because: People with high-sugar diets are more anxious than others. And weekly massages--not to mention that buff, blue-eyed masseur--are just what you need to keep your calm. You pay: $3,900
You get: A super automatic espresso center Because: You're more likely to crash after a sugar rush than a caffeine fix. And you want to keep your head from bobbing during that bored, er, board meeting. You pay: $660
You get: Continuing education courses Because: Lately, your neurons have been lazier than Paris's left eye. Researchers have found that high blood sugar may contribute to gradual mental decline. You pay: $826
