Sugars are everywhere. Sugars are even in the health food stores. Most all soy milks (especially vanilla and cocoa) are sweetened with sugar (unsweetened soymilks are readily available). How can you keep your sugar intake as low as possible? Take the concept of desserts out of your life. Most Asian cultures do not have the concept of dessert. Limit your intake of fresh (local, not tropical) fruit to 10% of your diet. Do not drink fruit juice. Some people are sugar sensitive, and should not even eat fruit. Fruits contain sucrose (the same as white sugar) and fructose (the same as high fructose corn syrup). Don’t eat dried fruit. Don’t sweeten your tea, and you shouldn’t be drinking coffee anyway. (If you have a cup of coffee, drink it plain so you’ll enjoy it less.) Read your labels. You’ll find sugar in bread, soup, ketchup, salad dressing, cereals, crackers, and all kinds of foods you would never expect to find it. You find sugar everywhere in our society. One hundred and sixty pounds a year per person. No one else on earth does this.
If you eat more than one ounce of any kind of sugar every day you can expect a world of health problems. Blood sugar dysfunction starts with high blood sugar, insuling resistance, metabolic syndrome, and then type 2 diabetes. (Insulin resistance means your cells don’t react to insulin properly, so the pancreas keeps making more and more insulin to compensate.) Just having high blood sugar levels associated with heart disease, strokes, Alzheimers, liver disease, kidney disease, hypertension, osteroporosis, prostate disease, erectile dysfunction, high triglycerides, and a long list of other illnesses.

Sugar Substitutes -Roger Mason
For decades now various chemical concoctions have been sold as sugar substitutes. All of these have been toxic and unhealthy. We Americans eat immense amounts of various sugar, more than anyone else in history. The real answer is to quit scarfing down over 160 pounds(!) of various sugars every year. That's right, each American, on the average, hogs down over 160 pounds of different sweeteners each and every year we have no need at all for. The real answer is to just stop this sugar addiction. One hundred years ago we didn't do this. No culture has ever done this. 1 in 3 American children born today will grow up to get diabetes, and we still don't get it. We have the worst adult diabetes rates in the world. No other country has a diabetes epidemic like ours. Read my book The Natural Diabetes Cure. Source: http://youngagain.org/m15.html
Honey is easily assimilated by the body and quickly converted into energy. It is valued for its sweetness and curative properties. But Honey is still a sugar and then not advisable for Diabetics.
