Fruit sugar is totally different from white sugar. The sugar from fruit is not harmful like white sugar if you don’t eat an excessive amount of fruits. If you are trying to lose weight, you should limit all sugars even fruit.
However, fruits have a lot of water and fiber. They are healthy for you. It is really difficult to consume enough fructose from fruit that will harm to the body unlike white sugar. Also, fruit sugar digest slower in the liver than white sugar. Another benefit of fruit is that it makes you feel full. Large amounts of sugar from fruits are not as harmful as white sugar.
However, The American Heart Association recommends no more than 26 grams of sugar per day for women, or 36 grams per day for men. And for men and women ages 19 to 30, the USDA recommends two cups of fruit per day. But depending on which fruit is picked, this could be bad news for fruit lovers: Just two cups of sliced bananas adds up to the maximum recommended amount, clocking in at 36 grams of sugar.
We should limit the amount of sugar we intake regardless of whether it comes from white sugar or fruits.
