Fats V Sugar

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, im starting tomorrow but need help first please

I understand you need 30g of Fat a day, and approx 1500 calories but what about sugar, as for example a WW dessert is 3g of Fat (which is good) but may have 25g of sugar, is this ok???

I suffer from dizziness if I dont eat sugar, and needed to know if I going to do this properly.

What is the acceptable level of sugar a day??

Many thanks for any help, im totally confused and want to do this right,

Cheers for the great forum

    no worries, i think to begin with get to know what you can eat in the correct fat content band and then as you become familiar with those you can then look to lower things like sugar smile

    My Dietician said that your intake of sugar and fat should ideally be the same, milk sugars are something totally different but if you can I was reccommended to stick to nothing over 5g of fat or sugar per 100g.

    I have now lost five stone four pound so it has definitely worked for me.

    Good Luck,

    I started my blues in April.

    My usual day is;

    Breakfast: 2 weetabix with soya milk and two slices of wholemeal toast with a scraping of marge and vegemite.

    Lunch: Box of salad with a dollop of low fat cottage cheese, quorn meat sandwich, pckt of weightwatchers crisps, fruit and a muller light yoghurt

    Dinner: either tuna pasta; quorn grill, jacket and salad; ravioli; fish, jacket and veg;

    As you can see i eat quite a lot at each meal, but then don't eat anything in between except for fruit. I hope this helps.
