New study says most sugar comes from food, not drinks

Posted: Updated:

     A new study finds that we're getting a majority of our added sugars from foods, not beverages and we're consuming them at home. Dietician Laura Jeffers with the Cleveland Clinic says, "I'm surprised, only because a lot of times we're just assuming that everyone is just drinking all of their calories, but now it's really, maybe they're getting that diet or calorie-free drink but they're now focusing on getting their added sugars from food, which is definitely a shift."

     Dieticians say the best thing we can do is when we grocery shop, stick to the perimeter.

     That's where we find fruits, veggies, meats and dairy - stores typically keep the processed foods in the middle aisles.
