How to Limit Added Sugar

To limit added sugars, build your diet on healthy unprocessed foods as much as possible. Select low-fat protein sources (lean meat/fish/poultry, low-fat dairy, beans), fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains. Barix Clinics recommends that you limit added sugars to 2 grams or less per serving. Do this by looking at the nutrition facts label to see how much sugar is in a serving. Then check out the ingredient listing. If the product has more than 2 grams of sugar per serving and you see an “added sugar” term within the first five ingredients listed, put it back.
