Watching your sugar intake? You should. According to the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, “A healthy dietary pattern limits added sugars to less than 10 percent of calories per day.”

Eating or drinking too many added sugars can make it difficult to get in all of your required nutrients without going over your daily calories. This is especially important for those trying to lose weight. In fact, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends limiting the intake of foods and beverages high in added sugars as a weight loss strategy to decrease overall calorie intake.
