    Ask Amy: Teen's sugar addiction isn't so sweet
    Dear Amy: I am a young teen who has a bad addiction to sugar. When I have tea, I put way too much sugar in it. I eat a ton of chocolate. My parents keep telling me to cut back on the sugar and candy. It's not because I'm overweight, it's just because...
