You can have about 6 tsps of sugar a day for an adult. Half that for kids. I make everything homemade right down to sauces and syrups so I rarely eat anything with added sugar that I haven't made myself. Today it's already lunch and I haven't had any sugar yet, so I think I probably fall below the 6 tsps per day.
If you drink a can of soda for example it has roughly 10 tsps of sugar in it, already over the recommended for an adult for the day. Just by switching from soda to water it's a win win. Don't switch to diet soda though, even worse for the poison of artificial sugar.
Sugar is really not the enemy here, it's all the processed food and the fast food and eating out and sodas and junk foods. That is the REAL issue. If people ate more of a diet of homemade recipe foods, and follow portion control much of the obesity issues would be resolved today in my opinion.
It's eating REAL food is what is important. Down with the convenience and packaged foods. They don't do a body good!

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results. "
