I dont know how weight watchers works as they include high levels of sugar in their snacks and label them low fat, any one who understands dieting knows that un used sugar is converted and stored as fat!! I have only successfully lost weight when I do not eat sugar!!! Very hard unle4ss you eat no processesed foods!

Thank you for printing the article about sugar. I have taken it to heart and sent it to two very special people in my life. It is very informative and helpful.

I'm currently on a sugar-free diet (for reasons other than just weight loss) and sugar is in EVERYTHING! Literally. It's digsusting. Lol.

I appreciate the list - BUT - I'd love to see a complete listing of hidden sugars - for more foods. This is really helpful. Thanks!

The problem for me is choosing fat over sugar, or fiber over sugar. The other day I bought white pita bread instead of whole wheat because there was a tsp of sugar in each small whole wheat pita. I figure I get enough fiber, sugar is the problem.
Likewise I switched back to full fat mayonnaise (used sparingly!) because low fat Hellman's had so much sugar in it.

Maybe the next time I go grocery shopping I'll make the opposite choice-?

I was reading the label of a package of whole grain sesame crackers I have and noticed in the ingredients "Evaporated Cane Juice" listed as the third item. Isn't this just a mentally misleading way of saying "sugar". There is also honey in the ingredients which means there's two types of sugars in this so-called healthy snack. I will definitely pay very close attention - even to those products in green grocery stores.

i'm a huge sugar-holic and know it's my weak point....always has been. This is a great article to see how much sugar is in food...even food we believe contains no sugars. Hmmmmmm I'm going to see if I can do a daily tracking... I did it with the salt so I'm sure sugar is amongst that too. Thanks for thig.

I work in a hospital and I was shocked to see angel food cake at the top of the list. I thought that was something we were able to give our diabetic residents, but with that much sugar in a slice. My gosh!!!

Wow I did not realise just how many empty calories we consume needlessly! I am so surprised but grateful for the article.

Not only sodas!! I live in Italy. When I go back to the US I have a hard time eating a lot of "normal" food because they have been sweetened up so much - bread, beer (!), iced tea, tomato sauces... there is sugar everywhere!!

Great article. I gave up COKES last year because I know how much sugar is in one 20 oz. bottle. I still miss drinking them, though.
