As far back as 1989 the World Health Organization recommended women consume NO MORE than 6 teaspoons of added sugar per day, and NO MORE than 9 teaspoons for men. This recommendation was subsequently endorsed by more than 170 WHO member countries via the "2014 Rome Declaration on Nutrition."
Today, the average person consumes 48 teaspoons of added sugar per day (48 teaspoons x 4 grams per teaspoon = 192 grams of added sugar).
This is a serious problem! Our summit is here to help bring those numbers down and save lives. Personally, we recommend 0 teaspoons.
