No, I cannot calculate this. I do not overeat anything and we do not have dessert that frequently either. So I am guessing it should not be that bad. I know I take a teaspoon in my tea . Rest of the day, I am mostly on home cooked meals from scratch and no packaged food. I guess the natural sugar from fruits in alright.
I really do not have a close idea,at all.I would say 3 cups of tea means 3 teaspoons of raw sugar without fail! Bt my diet changes so much from day to day. If I have pickles on a sandwich then THERE is more of the stuff!! I eat a lot of fresh fruit so that is fructose,which must be counted.But the worst would be on the days I eat some chocolate or some really nice biscuits which I stocked up on after Christmas during the sales. Fortunately I can go days with OUT eating any of these,but I am sure I make up for it with other items! It is the hidden sugar which is in so many so-called Savoury foods which can bring the total up.Curries and other asian foods contain sugar in quite large amounts ,and of course take away like burgers have high sugar content too. I do not eat take away except occasionally I share pizza with my neighbour. and generally I do watch what I eat .I believe if I balance my diet and get what exercise I am able to manage with my illness,then I shall remain as well as possible in the areas where I do have control .On the whole though,Australians definitely DO eat far too much sugar in its various forms.
I tend not to buy food with added sugar, I don't use sugar as a sweetener, I don't have sugar in coffee or tea. Unless I eat something sweet, or have wine, I don't get that much sugar. I'd be surprised it there was 5 tablespoons a day.
It's easy for me to work out how many teaspoons of sugar.....WAY TOO MANY!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE sugar. I have 2 crowns as testament to that fact.
The question I find harder is....how many teaspoons of sugar can I cut OUT of my day!
I don't know how to count how much sugar I have in a day. I don't add sugar to food or drinks on an average day and cook most food from scratch. I do eat some fruit and milk which has sugar.
If I buy a loaf of bread there is sugar in that and a friend just gave me some of his home made jelly and chutney and I know they are full of sugar, but not something I would normally have. I haven't tried them yet.
Sometimes I crave something sweet and might add a couple of teaspoons of honey to yoghurt - so I guess that is sugar too.
No, I wouldn't waste my time doing that! We only have dessert on special occasions, eg someones birthday, or jam/honey on our toast for breakfast, & I guess it's in my wheet-bix, & the biscuit I have for my afternoon tea. Oh yes, & the 1 square of dark chocolate we have most evenings after dinner.
