Are you consuming too much hidden sugar?

Are you eating hidden sugars?
Just a regular Saturday morning clinic marking client’s food diaries and pointing out where they are eating hidden (or, not so hidden) calories. Without a doubt the most common dietary pattern I see is the tendency to add energy dense sugars into the daily eating plan without even realizing it. Here are the most common offenders and the calories they offer each and every time we indulge in them.
