Episode Highlights:

(07:38) There are many healthy foods that have sugar in them; it could be milk sugar, which is called lactose, in milk and yogurt; it could be fruit sugar, which is called fructose. Fruit juices and dried fruits may all have natural sugar in them.… The problem is when they dump a whole bunch of extra added sugar in it, and that will be very specifically labeled on the food label.

(10:13) You really just want to avoid anything that has added sugar in it, unless you're purposefully having a splurge. For example: if it's your birthday and you're going to have a piece of birthday cake, that is a lot of added sugar, but you know it. What I'm trying to help you become aware of is all those times when you think you're picking something healthy and you don't realize it has added sugar. Like those instant oatmeals, for example.

(13:44) I just want our listeners to become aware that (the food industry is) adding sugar to foods when they shouldn't be; if you pick a breakfast cereal, you can pretty much be guaranteed that it's got added sugar in it. I want you to be looking for things that you think are good for you, like granola bars, yogurts, or salad dressings. There are so many things that you think are good for you and the food industry's dumped a whole bunch of sugar in it.
