With the current war being waged on sugar you may want to consider healthy alternatives, 20 years from now sugar could be treated with the same derision as tobacco; imagine if chocolate was outlawed and the only way to get your fix was through dodgy individuals in back alleys! What about sugar –laden soft drinks only available in illegal drinking dens reminiscent of prohibition?! Seem far fetched? Not really – I can still remember when it was legal to smoke inside public places, and cigarettes were casually advertised across all mediums: TV, billboards and the print media, anyone cocky enough to flagrantly break anti –smoking laws today would be deemed persona non grata!

Rather than wait to be treated as a social pariah, perhaps you should begin to wean yourself off ‘sugar –crack’ –referred to by some due to its highly addictive nature. I’m not suggesting you go cold turkey, start with swapping your sugar –laden soft drinks for something healthier, try these suggestions:
