oooh, the "breakfast" thread made me wonder the same thing. one poster on that thread said Kashi Go Lean Crunch has as much sugar as candy - I checked the box and it has 19 grams, the other kashi varietys have 9. Purely Os (natural cheerios) have 1. hmmmm

My calorie counting software also tracks my nutrient intake for me, so I just checked its goal for sugar intake. It is using 30 grams as a target.

Is there a differentiation for sugar in an apple vs. sugar in a cereal? If an apple alone has 16 grams then having 2 a day would go over the daily allotment for all calories that day? Anyone know?

How many grams of sugar should I have in one day?
It depends on what your calorie level is. Say you are on a 1200 calorie diet. Also say that your diet has a breakdown of 60 % carbohydrates, 20 % protein and 20 % fat. This is what is recommended by most dietitions, and by the American Council on Exercise. 60% of 1200 is 720 calories coming from carbohydrates. Since there are 4 calories in 1 gram of carbohydrates, that means you can have 180 grams of carbohydrates per day. The food pyramid recommends that most of your carbohydrates come from complex carbohydrates such as whole grain breads/cereals/starchy vegetables/whole grain pastas/dark leafy green vegetables/fruits. That doesn't leave much room for white sugar/white flour. I do not eat any white sugars/white flours. But if you eat at least 75% complex carbohydrates (which is 135 grams), it leaves 45 grams for simple carbohydrates, such as white sugars & flours. I hope this helps!
