WHAT A UNIQUE WAY TO PRESENT THIS...


Each sugar cube is a teaspoonful.

  1. Oh boy, that's a visual with some impact Rett. How come I like all of the ones with the biggest piles?? sigh
    At least I drink my coffee black, so I think I'll have another cup.
    Enjoy your Special K!

  2. Even fruit has so much sugar! Can't win. I don't drink but I guess wine has a lot since it is made from grapes.

    I drink sugar free sodas, but I know they are bad too!

    How about if we dip the carrots, and never those packaged baby ones, they have all kinds of chemicals for preservation in them, in chocolate! :)

  4. Rett,
    That is really interesting. Two oreos wouldn't be too bad. LOL.

  7. Hi...I also have these same photos in a powerpoint. I have actually had my students check to see if they are accurate and some are not - for instance in the 1st photo the can of coke is incorrect because it has 39 grams of sugar which converts to 13 teaspoons...i think each sugar cube does not equal 1t...I have my students do this activity with candy as well as soda and juice - they love doing it because they get to eat the treat and then make a poster with the candy/soda label and measure out the exact amt of sugar in a baggie and tape it to poster - the whole school gets to see these and everyone is always surprised to see it! And natural sugar is much better than processed sugar...Makes you THINK, doesn't it??

  8. So great, I just started south beach diet and none of those are on my list to eat. We get to add some fruits back in next week. But pretty amazing how all the natural foods have so much less.

    XO,

  10. Wow, this makes one think twice about taking a sip or bite of any of these. So much for healthy fruit. LOL
    Guess snacking on carrots is the way to go. ~ Sarah

  15. I came over to see if your toes are still tapping. Better be careful, someone will get a video of it, and the next thing you know, the whole world will see it! LOL!

    XO,

  16. Wow this was a great post! I agree a picture is worth a thousand words or maybe in this case a thousand calories from sugar!! Really glad that I found your blog.

  17. Ugh... I didn't need to see this! Well, I did, but I am trying to ignore the Mountain Dew one!!! :-)

  18. Oh, Rett, Mr. Sweet and I have been eating Special K with strawberries all last week. This week, it is some other Special K. I sure am feeling good about it, too.
    This is amazing and I am sending it to my daughter.

  20. Wow! These pictures do it like no numbers on the back of a package can!!! I'm really depressed about the Starbucks pic-had one yesterday to keep me awake on a long drive! No physical activity except slamming on the break and steering the car. Not too many calories were burned there unless you count the stress of driving. Linda

  21. How cool is this? Guess I'll be hiding the snicker bars. ha! The midnight milky way probably has less--and we all know dark chocolate is sooo good for our hearts.

    After seeing this I think it's a good thing I love strawberries.

    Fun post.

    Joyfully,
    Pamela
