FN10 sugar

Many foods contain sugar. But products that aren’t made by buying and making ingredients themselves have a lot of sugar in them than you might imagine. It takes a few cups instead of a spoon or two. It even goes into sauces like ketchup. These sugars are not a bad food. However, eating too much sugar is harmful to the body. So one of the reasons why people’s stomach sticks out is lots of sugar. So in the future, check the label on the back of the product and try to reduce sugar.
