Cravings-Crushing Monday (In Advance) Because of the Long July 4 Weekend

Independence Day in the United States is, of course, in the height of the picnic season. That means you’ll be offered and partake of a veritable feast of sugar-laden snacks and main courses — whether you know it or not.

If you suffer from sugar cravings — or even if you don’t — this holiday can be tricky, especially if you aren’t armed with the right information.

You don’t need to be a nutritionist to know that it’s best to avoid sugar-sweetened cookies, brownies or cake cake—no matter how patriotically you decorate them.

But the Sneakiest Sugars in Disguise often grace your picnic tables.

And you wonder why you get Crazy Cravings after your ostensibly healthy meal?

Most people seeking to eat healthily or to limit their intake of sugar or carbs are duped every time they go to the supermarket even if they carefully read food labels.
