Do You Want to See the Maximum Amount of Sugar You Should Eat per Day?

Health plans for permanent weight loss, such as the Silver Fern™ ELEVATED probiotic weight loss program, include key ways to beat your sugar addiction and recommend avoiding unnecessary sugar. If you want to see how much added sugar we eat each day in regular foods, look at Business Insider’s article - Here’s what the maximum amount of sugar you should be eating in a day looks like. Here are some highlights:

“The FDA proposed that nutrition labels on foods be required to list the amount of added sugar as a percentage of the recommended maximum daily intake, or about 50 grams of sugar.”

“Since "50 grams" isn't exactly easy to picture, we decided to show you what that looks like (based on data from the nutrition website”

“A single can of soda”

“If you're a fan of soda, you may want to consider kicking your habit. A 12-ounce can of Coke contains 39 grams of sugar — four-fifths of the FDA's recommended limit, while the new "cold activated" 16-ounce can have a whopping 52 grams. You might consider drinking diet soda instead, although some studies suggest diet drinks maybe not be healthy either in the long run.”

“One fancy coffee drinks”

“Many of us nurse a Starbucks habit, but you may be surprised to realize just how unhealthy this can be. For example, one grande Caramel Frappuccino with whipped cream contains 52 grams of sugar — and that's all you're supposed to have all day!”

“Not only that, but one of these drinks contains 430 calories and 16 grams of fat — about a quarter of the recommended daily limit (and half of your daily saturated fat). The "light" frappuccino fares slightly better, with 29 grams of sugar and 140 calories.”
