Any and all sugar

We do actually need sugar to survive. Cells in your body rely on sugar for fuel. It’s just important to watch your intake. Men should look to consume about 37.5 grams a day and women can have roughly 25 grams (sorry ladies—I’m not thrilled about it either!) So those adapting a completely sugar-free diet, not even touching jars of pasta sauce that contain six grams of the stuff and cutting out fruit, could find themselves fatigued and facing a nutrient deficiency.
