An average person consumes more than 20 teaspoons of added sugar everyday, which does not even take into account the sugar found in food like milk and fruit juices. The sweeteners are a reason for nearly 17 percent of our daily calories. Doctors advise you to have a maximum of 12 teaspoons of sugar or 48 grams to be present in a 2,200 calorie diet (9 percent of our daily calorie intake). That means, if you are taking a diet of 2000 calories, the maximum sugar should be 200 calories or 50 grams. Check the nutrition label of the food that you eat to find out the sugar content. If you are a person who lives an active lifestyle and exercises regularly, sugar may not possess much of a problem if you sweat your calories away. However too much of a sweet thing is not good.

Eating too much sugar cannot cause diabetes, contrary to popular perception. However the disease if present can be made by worse by eating sugary food or carbohydrate rich food. Eating too much sugar, and leading a sedentary life-style can lead to obesity which can increase the chances of diabetes.
