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)
Home baking: Use recipes that use natural sugars like agave, honey, raisins, cinnamon or dates. Avoid artificial sweeteners.
Drinks: Reduce the amount of sugary drinks like soda, juice and some alcohol. Cut down on the amount of sugary beverages you drink. Drink water or make a fresh pure juice.
Fruits: Avoid canned fruits, unless they are packed in water.
Go natural: Fruit has natural sugars in it, and makes a great dessert or snack. If you feel that you are craving something sweet, eat a piece of fruit and wait 15 minutes for your cravings to go away.
