Trying to count sugar intake. Do fruits count or is it mainly the unhealthy sugars added to foods. And how many grams is ok in a day ?

Trying to count sugar intake. Do fruits count or is it mainly the unhealthy sugars added to foods. And how many grams is ok in a day ?

Fruits count: If you are trying to accurately account for all sugar intake, fruits can make up a significant proportion. Sugar in fruits is better because you are getting all of the micronutrients and fiber of the fruit, but it is still sugar. I generally recommend that total carbs account for less than half of your daily caloric intake. Most of these carbs should come from fruit, vegetable, and whole grain. ...Read more

Yes : If you are taking a lot of sugar the excess can spill over and create an environment prone to yeast vaginitis.

Will i lose too much weight if i cut down on my sugar intake? I'm doing this to get healthy and to end my addiction to sugar.

Will i lose too much weight if i cut down on my sugar intake? I'm doing this to get healthy and to end my addiction to sugar.

Not likely: Many people feel addicted to sugar. It's very unlikely you'll lose "too much" weight if you end this addiction. Diets containing large amounts of sugar (including high-fructose corn syrup) raise triglyceride levels and make it more likely to store fat than to metabolize it. Fiber-rich carbs like veggies and beans don't do this. Weight loss is more than just "calories in, calories out.". ...Read more

Unlikely. : You may feel sluggish for a while but that should resolve. You should be consuming some carbohydrates that are converted to sugar in the body. Some fad diets have you stopping all carbohydrates. Your body is smart enough to get around it but will take several days and you may feel very fatigued. See your local dietician if you want to diet. Get smart ideas from the experts. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic and would like to monitor my sugar intake. What should be my daily grams of sugar per 135lbs body weight?

Count carbs: Eat like a diabetic and you'll keep from being one. Ask your doctor to send you to diabetes education class. It is usually covered for those with pre-diabetes also. "sugar" is just a simple carb, and those are bad. Complex carbs are good. A diabetes education class will help you learn to eat more healthfully, schedule food regularly, and get daily exercise. ...Read more

Curious: I drink a med ice latte, 1 pump of syrup, no whip from coffee chain. No health issue, normal weight. Can water flush the sugar intake after?

Curious: I drink a med ice latte, 1 pump of syrup, no whip from coffee chain. No health issue, normal weight. Can water flush the sugar intake after?

Not really: Water will not have an affect on the sugar you've consumed or how it is metabolized by your body. Your body will still process the sugar as it would without any additional water consumed, and it will use the energy (the calories) from the sugar. Despite that, though, it is a good idea to drink water in addition to lattes or other sweetened beverages! ...Read more
