According to the American Heart Association, you should be eating no more than six teaspoons of sugar a day. If you have a sweet tooth, this guideline can be a tough one to follow.

Opting for dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate or spicing up Greek yogurt with different dried fruits are just a few ways to enjoy something sweet without going overboard.
