With the exception of diabetics, who are very controlled in their intake of 'sugars', good senior health practices indicate that you should limit your sugar intake.
An easy way to reduce your sugar intake, if you don't use artificial sweeteners is to buy a demitasse (or baby) spoon to use when adding sugar to coffee, tea, cereals, or whatever. You'll be adding a spoonful of sugar, but a lesser amount! Also avoid candies and sodas which are incredibly high in sugar. Don't be afraid to look at the nutritional label on all of your foods to check out the sugar, you'll be glad you did!
