Heard we should have <200 cal of sugar per day. Why didnt we know that before?

It's made up

Calorie
Much of the pop / media "health advice" is subscientific or the work of overactive imaginations. Pure sugar is empty calories without nutrients, and since it tastes good, folks eat more of it and get fat, which is largely bad. Guidelines like this aren't science, but they may be good advice in helping folks (like me) who need a reason not to eat that next piece of peanut brittle. Cheers.

If you have prediabetes how many carbs,sugar can you have per day?

Less is more

Calorie
Hard to pinpoint exactly what the exact cutoff of total carbs would be. I would suggest trying to keep the number of calories you get from carbs to less than 33 percent (one third) of your daily calories.

How much grams of sugar should i intake a day and still be considered healthy?

Very little

Diet
Sugar is a simple carb, and those are not good. Complex carbs are good for you. A diet with little/no simple carbs (sugar) is best.
