Answer the questions below to find out if you are consuming too much sugar in a day:
1. Are you constantly craving sugary things – especially after a meal?
2. Are you feeling lethargic and tired by mid afternoon?
3. Is your skin constantly breaking out?
4. Do you experience brain fog or find it hard to concentrate as the day goes on?
If you have answered “Yes” to more than one of the questions above it may help to look into how much added sugar you are consuming in a day! The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends 6 teaspoons of sugar per day for an adult. Complete Health Chiropractic is running a sugar challenge for the month of November where we look at ways to help you reduce your daily sugar intake!
