average American that lives a healthy lifestyle, you don't have too many calories to spend on added sugar. The AHA advises that women consume no more than 100 calories from added sugar per day. Men can have slightly more: 150 calories. This translates into an upper daily limit of 25 and 37.5 grams (6 and 9 tsp.) of added sugar for men and women, respectively. One 12-oz. can of regular soda pop contains 8 tsp. of added sugar.

I tried to search something that explains it better than me. This is what I could find. I would just pay attention to your natural sugars and try to stay away from those bad sugars. I would focus more on your salt and do the sugar watch gradually.
That is what I would do. But I would also talk to your doctor about watching your sugars as well. Hope this helps.
