A while ago I googled the official advice about daily consumption of sugar, fats, proteins etc. and found a site http://daa.asn.au/for-the-public/smart-eating-for-you/nutrition-a-z/daily-intake-guide/ that recommended 90gm of sugar for an average adult (some would need more or less). I lived with that for a while until my kids showed me the “That sugar Movie” and after seeing it I concluded that 90gm per day sounded like way too much. I’ve since found other estimates that suggest it’s more like 25gm – and given the sugars found in foods like fruits, milk, etc. that leaves little or no room for added sugar in the foods and sauces and drinks that we might eat. Do you think you have too much sugar? How much do you think you consume?
