Did you know that a glass of 1% milk contains 12g of sugars? How is that even possible?
No wonder this country has such widespread weight problems. Even when you think you're making healthy choices, you're totally not. That's fucked up.
I get that things need to taste good, I really do. But we don't even have the option of something that is truly healthy. Whole-grain foods have a higher calorie content and often a higher level of sodium. If something is low-fat, it contains a shit-ton of sugar or sodium. If something is low-sodium, it contains a shit-ton of fat. If something is low sodium AND low-fat, it's chicken broth and you need to make something out of it.
I mean how are we, as a nation, supposed to get and stay healthy when something called "Cracklin' Oat Bran" has more sugar than a children's cereal called "Fruity Pebbles?"
That reminds me, I need to go check my Fruity Pebbles box to see if there's a prize inside....
