How much sugar should I eat?
I have been advocating for the past 3 months on consuming LESS SUGAR not only for general health but to break plateau and defeat weight loss resistance myself.
In my battle for the past 7 months, I realize that there is added sugar even in healthy food options like:
1) fruit cups without syrup and organic
2) apple sauce (organic)
3) granola bars
4) protein bars
6) milk and milk substitute
7) Chinese takeouts
8) BBQ Sauce
9) Fruit Yogurt
10) Dried Fruit
And it add ups against your waist, your energy and even your sleep (at least in my case).
IN SHORT, How do we know if we are eating too much sugar even when making healthy choices? Count the grounds of sugar that you normally eat, but also COUNT THE GRAMS OF SUGAR THAT APPEAR on the nutritional label of the food you are consuming.
But how much sugar should I eat? For example without counting fruit, a woman should not eat more than 25 grams of added sugar that is about 6 tsp. And did you know that there are 22 grms already in a fruit cup and some granola or protein bars?! Scary!
As to the teaspoons and what does it represent, I went live on my Facebook Page and explained more about it.
Once you know the answer to that question -“How much Sugar Should I eat?”-, then go the nutrition label and scan down the sugar count. You will be surprised how fast you can get to you maximum amount of daily sugar. Now you are aware and can make better decisions, right?
