Ideally, sweets should not exceed 10% of your daily calorie intake. That is, if you eat 2000 kcal per day, then only 200 of them can be “sugar”. If you put two spoons of sugar in tea, then you can have five cups of tea a day. Or tea without sugar and one cake. Or tea without sugar and without cakes, but two white bread sandwiches…

Even if it seems to you that you do without sugar at all, you are deeply mistaken. You almost certainly get your 10%. And most city dwellers make up to a third of their daily energy needs from sugars. There is a suspicion that large food manufacturers are “hooking” us on this drug quite purposefully. For a separate price, they offer you (under the guise of “healthy food”) sweets and waffles with sweeteners, but they add refined sugar to ketchups, mayonnaises and breading for cutlets.

Here are seven tricky tricks that will allow you to keep the defense against sugar monsters.
