I'm bulking right now (pic is almost a year old.. only thing thats really growing is my stomach), but I did some math last night and realized on average I go through 9lbs of applesauce a week.

A serving has 25g of sugar and theres about 3 servings in a pound of it.

If you like it, there is no problem on eating it. 25g of sugar is nothing when compared to what you would consume eating candies or ice cream (stuff that people normally binge on).

Why not make your own man? If I remember, applesauce bought has no skins inside it, and the skin has loads of extra nutrients. Just cut apples up, boil them, then blend em. Done! =D

If you don't already buy it, you can buy the applesauce with no added sugar in it. Still tastes great because the apples themselves are sweet enough.

Just buy the unsweetened stuff man.

thanks, i'll look into the unsweetened applesauce... i tend to buy most my food at a wholesale club, so i'm not sure if they carry the huge 3-pack jars but i can definitely shop around... i was afraid i'd have to cut it out of my diet, it never even makes it to a spoon, i tend to just 'drink' it straight from the jar.
