Managing Your Sugar Intake: Try Sugar Free Alternatives
Editor's note: For every day in January 2008, we'll encourage you to keep your New Year's Resolutions by giving a diet and fitness tip of the day from our dietitian, Heather Reese.
Instead of buying the full-fat, full-sugar versions of your favorite foods, try the lowfat, fat-free or sugar-free varieties. This way you can enjoy the foods you love without all the added calories.
