When you talk about how many grams of sugar to consume, does this include fruit, nuts, grains, veggie sugar?!
Also, Japanese eat around *40 grams of sugar excluding fruits and veggies but including nuts, soy milk, tofu, etc. Some say the cal percentage shouldn't exceed from 6 to 10 to even 30% of our daily calories. Some also say a person on a 1,000 cal diet shouldn't eat more than 16 grams of added sugar (which hopefully excludes soy milk and nuts!) The American Heart Association says women shouldn't go over 25 grams of added sugar. When it comes to natural sugar from fruits and veggies it seems 50 grams to some for sedentary people.
no, the 40 grams of sugar limit is added sugar, like the sugar found in packaged foods or sugar you add to food yourself. These sugars metabolize quickly and lead to a crash. Vegetable sugars however, digest slowly and dont cause an insulin spike
