How much sugar is too much

Posted on June 2, 2015 at 6:20 PM    
It is very important to make the distinction between added sugars and sugars that occur naturally in foods like fruits and vegetables.These are healthy foods that contain water, fiber and various micronutrients. The naturally occurring sugars are absolutely fine. However, added sugars are those that are added to foods. The most common added sugars are regular table sugar (sucrose) or high fructose corn syrup.
 
According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the maximum amount of added sugars you should eat in a day are:
Men: 150 calories per day (37.5 grams or 9 teaspoons).
Women: 100 calories per day (25 grams or 6 teaspoons).
On average 1 can of soda contains about 30 grams of sugar

How am I supposed to Eat 5-9 fruits/vegetables per day

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 4:35 PM    
First let's talk portion sizes of fruits and vegetables.  1/2 cup of vegetables is considered 1 serving.  For fruit, typically any fruit that is size of tennis ball is considered 1 serving.  1 cup Berries or 1 cup cubed melon is also considered 1 serving.  So if you have oatmeal in the morning with 1/2 cup blueberries and 1/2 banana, 2 cups of salad at lunch, fruit as snack, and 1-2 non starchy vegetables at dinner you ATE all your fruits and vegetables... GOOD JOB!

Typically you should aim to drink water in the amount that is equal to half your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds you should drink about 75 ounces of water or approximately 9 cups of water per day. However, if you drink caffeine.
