There was a time in my life when I could eat whatever I wanted, so I thought.  My first job was at Burger King and at breaks I would munch away on my choice of  burgers, fries, soft drinks, shakes and ice-burgers (frozen sugary ice things).  My next job was at Marie Callender's and as a waitress, I could take home all sorts of  leftover pie slices after my shift was over.    Bonus for me, I could have a snack at midnight and then  have pie for breakfast!  All through my life, I have had sugary treats and processed foods at my fingertips, without any thought to how it was affecting my body.  Food was my comfort and my joy.

21 Foods Where Sugar Deceptively Hides!

 

We all know that candy bars, donuts, and cakes are loaded with sugar. Sometimes we dig deep with resolve to say, "No thank you, I'm cutting back." While it's admirable that you are making an attempt to kick sugar out of your life, you may be eating more sugar than you think. Sugar is highly addictive and is added to what you eat by food moguls, not only to make things taste better, but to hook you into shoveling more into your mouth.
