Wow! This article has a lot of helpful information in it. I picked out one pointer for sure that I hope will help me. When I'm tired I drink lots of coffee and this does give me sugar cravings. If I can get my sleep patterns stabilized this might help combat the sugar cravings.

This is an excellent article for everyone to read.

Scientists at Princeton University found that chemicals released when we eat sugar ­actually travel along the same brain pathways that heroin does.

Hello,
I have been struggling with sugar, salt and food in general lately. I continue to read these posts and am hoping I can shake off this black cloud and get back into the swing of things again real soon.

That is not much but it is certainly something I need to adjust to less sugar in my diet. Now I know what the goal amount is I can work towards getting down to it.
Thanks for checking it out for me.

That is 23 grams per day.
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.

Is that 23 grams of sugar per meal?

Now that I am watching salt intake and now sugar intake I am much more aware of what is written on the labels of different foods.

The recommended intake is 23 grams of sugar that you should take. I will be put additional things here to help with watching your sugar amounts.

I hope it helps and good luck,
