Patients come in to see me every week who are trying to seek better paths for their nutrition and physical health, and there’s a new focus on cutting out sugar. This makes sense, especially when you consider that the suggested amount of sugar we’re supposed to eat every day is about 25 grams for women and 36 grams for men, but the average American consumes about 89 grams per day. That’s a lot, isn’t it?! In fact, most sodas contain about 39 grams of sugar. The question I hear the most regarding sugar is whether it’s better to cut sugar out completely or simply reduce the amount of it.
