Sugar?

How many grams of sugar a day is ok for 30-45 age group more  

Hi Alka.. please note its not about taking sugar the physical form..whatever we eat breaks down into sugar..that's why we have to be very cautious while eating food. One should avoid foods which contain simple sugars like white bread. white rice, suji, maida etc and instead stress upon whole grains more  
why Intake sugar ? we have many other alternatives of sugar. (sugar is really bad to consume. ) more  
its not the amount you take ,its more important how much we burn.Its very important to exercise on a daily basis,make a conscious ,deliberate effort to do 40 mins brisk walk every morning.All datas collected are on basis of assuming that people are not leading a sedentary life style---that we all are active the whole day --which is not the case in todays scenerio. more  
Very helpful Doctor. I try to restrict myself to 15 gms. Very very hard.. more  
There has been a lot controversy regarding the recommendations for sugar intake. As per World Health Organization’s guidelines, added sugar should not contribute more than 10 percent of total calorie intake. This means, a person on a 2000-calorie diet should consume no more than 50g of carbohydrate per day in the form of sugar. (One teaspoon of sugar provides 4g of carbohydrate, providing approximately15 calories.) The National Academy of Sciences Dietary Reference Intake (DRI) sets the cut-off at 25 percent of calories or 125g of carbohydrate from sugar on a 2000-calorie diet. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends limiting sugar to 6 to 10 percent of calories from sugar. According to the American Heart Foundation, the recommended daily requirement of sugar is: Men: 36g or 9 teaspoons Women: 20g or 5 teaspoons Children: 12g or 3 teaspoons So, the bottom line is to consume as little sugar as humanly possible. Besides, the other conditions need to be considered too. If the patient has diabetes, the sugar requirements reduce. I sincerely hope that helps more
