Sugar, Sugar! Do you remember the song Sugar by the Archies? (I am sure I dated myself with that question)...sugar, ah honey honey, you are my candy girl and you got me wanting you. Honey, ah sugar sugar, you are my candy girl and you got me wanting you. The song was released July 26, 1969, and was written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim.
Here we are in 2011 and “sugar, sugar” still has us wanting it by epidemic proportions and the reason it is addictive because it is practically in everything we eat! Is your body a sugar shack? Are you aware that the average American consumes about 170 pounds of sugar a year. While the song Sugar was a hit. Sugar consumption is not when it's over-indulged. Remember, moderation is key.
