I know I haven't posted in quite a while, but I've missed you all and will post a longer update when I get home from class tonight.
I've been tracking my food on The Daily Plate and have noticed my sugar intake has always been in the red zone. It really aggravates me because I'm not eating any garbage; all my sugar comes from fruit, vegetables, and one cup of Kashi cereal that I eat every morning.
Should I be worried? I researched and the recommended daily allowance is 40g, and I'm double that! My mother is borderline diabetic, and although I'm only 23 I don't want to go down that path. I do have PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), diagnosed when I was 16. My hormone levels are now normal with my lifestyle change, I'm not on any
meds. My sugar has never been high, I get blood tests regularly.
Should I cut the sugar? Am I being overly paranoid since all "sugar" is not created equal? (pectin vs. HFCS) The only two sweeteners I add to tea would be light agave nectar or a teaspoon of organic cane sugar.
For those that are tracking, what is your average daily sugar intake?
