My dental hyginist said I eat too much sugar and it's decalcifying my teeth. I highly doubt her because she's a hygenist, and someone else said it might be from green tea. I highly doubt both of them but what do u guys think?

It's definitely from sugar. Doesn't have to be sugar sugar but carbs in general. After eating carbs the pH in your mouth lowers and that's the ideal pH for bacteria to grow. In general you should brush your teeth or at least chew a proper gum after your meals to raise your pH back to normal.

From my hygenist (bs advice to other bsers =p) she says that tea and such won't hurt your teeth rather than just stain em. I would stick with the sugar, or maybe you just arn't brushing enough and the sugar has a long long time to do its dirty work.
