Registered dietitian Suzanne Farrell, from Cherry Creek Nutrition, says most people know to watch the fat in their diet, but some donât know added sugar can affect heart health as well.The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that found people who consumed 21 percent of their calories from added sugar had double the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association recommends that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, and men consume no more than 9 teaspoons.So Farrell gives her clients six easy tips to decrease your added sugar consumption:Eliminate sugary drinks â you may love your fancy coffee drinks, soda, juice or energy drinks, but those can have around 9 teaspoons of added sugarRead the Food Label â see how much added sugar is in a productWatch the condiments - ketchup, BBQ sauce and salad dressings can sneak in extra sugarRemove the health halo - products marked as healthy or organic can still have added sugarStart your day with more fiber - try a bowl of oatmealDitch the dessert and add fresh fruit to satisfy your sweet toothFarrell says itâs important to understand the food label.
