If you’ve ever tried to cut back on sugar, you’ve definitely had the shocking realization that there is more sugar in food and drink than we think. This is never more obvious than when you try to embrace a keto or low carb diet, and begin reading labels.

The most surprising thing is that it’s not just ‘unhealthy’ foods like donuts and soda, that contain a lot of sugar, but healthy foods too. That’s right, even if you have the best intentions, and you are eating healthy foods, you’ll still need to watch how much you eat if you’re trying to cut back on sugar.
