Are you eating too much sugar?

This Week's Tip

Are you eating too much sugar?
6 or fewer: That's the maximum teaspoons of added sugar you should consume each day for optimal health.

A number of studies have found a correlation between high sugar consumption and heart disease risk. A diet high in added sugars can also decrease HDL (good) cholesterol levels and increase triglycerides levels, both of which are heart disease risk factors. For these reasons, the American Heart Association recommends that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugars (about 100 calories) each day; that number becomes 9 teaspoons for men (150 calories). Just one 12-ounce can of cola has about 130 calories, or eight teaspoons of sugar.
