The average pulled pork sandwich contains about 18 grams of sugar. Combine that with lemonade or sweet tea for lunch, and you’ve hit your sugar ceiling for the day. “We don’t often consider condiments and sauces sugar hotspots, but these pockets can add up quickly and push us past our daily intake limits,” says Blatner, who points out that even a teeny-tiny Ketchup packet contains 2 grams of sugar. So if you’re planning on BBQing, measure a limited amount of sauce to use in the dish, then coat the meat using a brush to spread the sauce evenly. Also, plan to avoid other sugar sources throughout the day, from breakfast muffins to yogurts.
