Can bread cause constipation? Is this true that tthe flour used in making bread known as maida causes constipation?
No; unknown : Bread, in & of itself, does not cause constipation. However, bread that is made of highly refined grains, such as maida, lacks enough fiber necessary to prevent constipation.

Can i use pure fruit juice/juice concentrate to sweeten dishes so as to avoid bad effect of sugar?Is the fructose,glucose in fruit better than sucrose
Not really...: Sugar is sugar. That's why people who are avoiding sugar should not drink fruit juice. They are usually ok with eating small servings of fruit. Processed foods from the store that say "naturally sweetened with juice" and use grape juice (or another juice) are bad like products using sucrose. The best thing to do is to train oneself to enjoy unsweetened or only slightly sweetened foods and drinks. ...Read more

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
