    What sugar substitute is right for you?

    Do you drink bustelo coffee like my Mama Juana, straight black with three heaping spoons of sugar? Or do you live for cookies, shakes, ice cream and all those horribly decadent desserts that have your faja working overtime trying to reign it all in? Sugar is not the enemy. In fact, like Lindsey Lohan, it’s “misunderstood.” Different types of sugar affect our body in different ways, but what really makes it unhealthy is when we consume it in excess amounts.
