The human body needs to be fueled by the right foods but we don’t know what we don’t know. I will tell you right now that you can’t overeat sugar and remain in tip-top shape. Too much sugar will break the body down.

Below you will find the info on how much sugar you should consume per day, as reported by

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are (7):

  • Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons).
  • Women: 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons).

To put that into perspective, one 12oz can of coke contains 140 calories from sugar, while a regular sized snickers bar contains 120 calories from sugar.

Avoid these foods, in order of importance:

  1. Soft drinks: Sugar-sweetened beverages are awful, you should avoid these like the plague.
  2. Fruit juices: This may surprise you, but fruit juices actually contain the same amount of sugar as soft drinks!
  3. Candies and sweets: You should drastically limit your consumption of sweets.
  4. Baked goods: Cookies, cakes, etc. These tend to be very high in sugar and refined carbohydrates.
  5. Fruits canned in syrup: Choose fresh fruits instead.
  6. Low-fat or diet foods: Foods that have had the fat removed from them are often very high in sugar.
  7. Dried fruits: Avoid dried fruits as much as possible.
