150 pounds!  Would you believe that is this the amount of sugar the average American consumes in a single year?

Sugar was a special and rare treat just a few decades ago, a dietary micronutrient, but today has become a staple, a macronutrient, in the American diet.  Sugar is literally everywhere—in soft drinks, cookies, cakes, crackers, and most processed foods.  Sugar even lurks in the ingredient list of breads and often disguised in many “health” foods.  So, exactly what role should sugar play in your family’s diet?  Is sugar an effective workout fuel?  Is sugar really addictive?

We answer these questions and more with elite strength and conditioning coach Andy O’Brien today on LivingFuelTV.
