The average American consumes 50 pounds of cookies a year and a lot of these will be consumed over the holidays.
How much added sugar is in a cookie? That all depends on the cookie of course but one little Oreo is 7 grams of added sugar. A homemade cookie can contain twice that.
So when you are craving cookies, how about clementines, grapes, pomegranate, chestnuts, almonds dusted in chocolate powder, a cup of cinnamon tea, flavored coffee. If you do indulge try to keep in mind serving sizes. Follow it up with a walk or using some weights.
