How Much Grams Of Sugar Should I Intake A Day And Still Be Considered Healthy
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

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.
