CDC study says sugar is making us fat

Posted: Updated:

After analyzing the diets of a thousand adults in this country, the CDC says Americans are eating way too much sugar.

Sugars and fats together are supposed to stay between 5 and 15% of our daily diet. But according to this sample, 13% of our daily calories are already coming from sugar which leaves at most 2% for the calories from fat.

The report says this explains America's obesity epidemic.
