About This Quiz

Perhaps the most powerful addiction on the plant is that of sugar. Even when we try to limit the amount of sugar in our diets, we have to be very careful. Sugar is often hidden in your favorite food, and you wouldn't even know it! We're sure that there are some of you out there who have broken your sugar addiction, but most of us struggle to be aware of the sugar we consume on a daily basis. 

Did you know that one single can of soda has 39 grams of sugar? That's about seven teaspoons of sugar in one drink! The American Heart Associate recommends that we only have 25-38 grams per day. It's easy to see how we load up on sugar without even knowing it. During this quiz, we're going to ask you about your buying and your eating habits. We'll need to see if you read the labels or if you simply throw your favorites in the cart without thinking. 

Once we've determined the relevant details of your diet and your eating habits, we'll be able to tell you how addicted to sugar you are compared to the average person. Have you beat the sugar habit, or are you still struggling? We'll let you know how you're doing.
