Question: What should my maximum sugar intake be per day in order to not gain weight?

Answer: In terms of ADDED sugar it should be no more than 5% of total calories. For a woman this will be around 25 grams, and for a man around 37.5 grams. Notice this is a limit, so unlike RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) you shouldn’t be trying to reach this amount.

Common sources of added sugar to cut down on include: fizzy drinks, cakes, cookies and ice cream.  Sugar is also a popular replacement in “Low Fat” products so it’s always best practice to read the label, as sugar can be added to anything from fruit smoothies and yoghurts to ketchup.
