Why Honey Is Healthier Than Sugar

Video taken from the channel: DoctorOz


Honey is higher in fructose than glucose. Fructose is sweeter than glucose, so you may be able to use a smaller amount of honey in your food or drink without sacrificing sweetness. The trace.

Sugar is higher on the glycemic index (GI) than honey, meaning it raises blood sugar levels more quickly. This is due to its higher fructose content, and the absence of trace minerals. But honey.

Sugar is made of 50 percent glucose and 50 percent fructose, the sugar typically found in fruits, and is broken down very easily, leading to a surge of blood glucose. What your body doesn’t use right away gets stored as fat. Honey is also made mostly of sugar, but it’s only about 30 percent glucose and less than 40 percent fructose. Calorie-for-calorie, there are differences between sugar and honey, too.

One teaspoon of refined sugar has 16 calories, while an equal amount of honey has 22 calories. However, honey is also sweeter than refined sugar so it usually takes less honey to achieve the same level of sweetness. “Honey is also lower on the glycemic index, meaning that it doesn’t spike your blood sugar as rapidly.

However, a teaspoon of honey contains more calories than a teaspoon of sugar. In spite of its reputation as a healthier sweetener, honey falls into the same category as granulated and brown sugar: They’re all added sugars. Just like their name implies, these sugars are added to food during processing, preparation or at the table.

The only way to tell if the foods you buy contain added sugar is to check the ingredients. Because honey is lower in fructose and contains other trace minerals, it’s processed and absorbed more slowly by the body than refined sugar. This means longer-lasting energy and slightly less of a spike in blood sugar, which is easier on your body and digestive system. Honey is sweeter than granulated sugar, so you might use a smaller amount of honey for sugar in some recipes. But honey actually has slightly more carbohydrates and more calories per teaspoon than does granulated sugar — so any calories and carbohydrates you save will be minimal.

Honey is often marketed as a healthy alternative to regular sugar. This is largely due to the numerous health benefits associated with it and its antioxidant. Honey is sweeter than sugar, so you may need less of it, but it does have slightly more calories per teaspoon so it’s wise to keep a close eye on your portion sizes.

For diabetics, or those trying to manage their blood sugar levels, there is no real advantage to substituting sugar for honey as both will ultimately affect blood sugar levels.

The sugar in honey is nothing like processed sugar—don’t confuse it with table sugar or high-fructose corn syrup.

  • Thats not normal “raw” honey on the right. The honey that comes out of my hives looks like the one on the left. He was tasting either creamed honey or the rare types like out of Hawaii that are more crystalized and very expensive.

  • Speaking as a Naturopath and Sports Nutritionist there needs to be a correction here. First of all there’s a difference in what hybrid and processed honeys do versus original and alkaline honey. Original alkaline honey comes from the Mol bee which isn’t as vast and is often expensive to purchase and comes from Africa. One of the best ways to tell if you have good honey is to take a food tester and measure the ph of the honey. If its 7.1 or above its alkaline and healing. Hybrid foods like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are hybrid foods made by man that are acidic. These happen to be acid based foods known as “help me hurt me products” or help with some issues and causes damage elsewhere. Another example is cranberries which do kidney damage and much more but will help u get rid of a bladder infection. Carrots aren’t real food made by God. A carrot is a combination of the queen Ann lace flower combined with a sweet potato combined and titarter by a chemical to make a carrot. Sweet potatoes by themselves even boiled with skin and without baked skin helps a lot with cancer but not carrots just fyi. Making blanket statements like fructose damages the liver is incomplete and erroneous. Unnatural honeys do that not real honey. Also the damage to the liver that would occur would be because the adrenal glands which metabolize sugars are NOT working properly which control the kidneys and their ability to filter many things like toxins, lymph and more. So if the kidneys aren’t working properly the liver would be effected but the major problem would be your adrenal glands. Fructose is a natural sugar made by God and He put the fructose in fruits. To say fructose damages the liver means YOU COULD NOT EAT FRUITS! Which is obviously not true. Its wiser to be specific. Honey is a great healer and a great form in Manuka honey. Theres a natural honey by a company called Aseda that sells wild honey which is rather expensive and was alkaline last time I checked. Check for yourself however. Natural honey heals the gut and immune system of many issues but it obviously is not meant to be eaten in large quantities. Dr Berg needs to do a better job here of disseminating information not to include errors. Its more importantly to be accurate than popular. Check your honey to see if it has a ph of 7.1 as most your foods should be. There are also acidic fruits like lemons and limes that are alkaline in effect which help clean the kidneys causing the kidneys to filter and remove blockages from different organs. Hope this helps everyone. To God be the Glory!

  • My grandmother was a doctor of natural medicine. She advice people with poor eyesight to use non filters non pasteurize raw honey to
    apply each day a drop of this honey to the eye. Side effects were very burning but after a month your eyesight returns normal.

  • Hey Dr. Berg, I’ve started experimenting with Targeted Keto. That’s just where you have a few carbs right before a physical activity. I’ve been using Honey as my “Pre-Workout”. I have less than a teaspoon. Its not much at all. It’s been going great. I used to have a problem with not having a lot of energy at the beginning of my workout. I feel it has helped a lot with that. The big question is, Am I still in ketosis? Yes!
    Now, would I recommend eating honey and sitting at a desk job? No. But if you’re going to immediately burn it off, then fructose is like instant energy. =)

  • I like how everyone is complaining about how he held her hand.

    Who tf cares, they didn’t. So no one else should. Oh, heaven forbid someone hold someone’s hand. That must mean they are a predator. Grow up, people.

  • Absolutely no way I’ll give up raw honey. Not that I disagree with Dr. Berg, but he was only addressing wether honey is a good substitute for sugar. I do believe that honey has many other positive benefits.

  • I’m glad you did a vid on this, Doc. I’m starting the Specific Carb Diet with a paleo twist and trying to keep it as low carb and keto as possible. Honey is big on this diet and I’ve been a long time proponent of raw local farmed honey.

  • Just got my Manuka Honey Kfactor-16 from Wal-Mart for $21.98 which I thought was a lot but it usually sell for $27-50, Wow. My research shows that this honey is the Best you can buy.

  • Why is him leading her by the hand creepy, just looks like he is directing her to each stall without having to say come over here, now here.
    If it was a woman leading a man around by the hand would that be creepy? Was that a big No!

  • There’s a tribe that eats mostly honey for their diet, the men go out and climb roughly 40 trees a day. They eat a cup of honey for breakfast and cereal covered in honey later in the day. They are quite healthy and happy.

  • This sugar vs honey debate is very interesting to me. Is there any research/studies out there on the correlation between high intake of honey and obesity/diabetes? i understand they have the same compounds as sugar on a molecular level, but still.. the worlds obesity problem was not caused by natural sweeteners.

  • sure just make sure it says unpasteurized and unheated in the jar somewhere. You can find raw honey that is pasteurized and heated but it doesn’t have the same beneficial enzymes

  • Honny implies the unnecerssary destruction of sentien beings, there are other ways to use the beneficial benefits of what they call “honney” that actually contains the nectar of flores why not to go to the flowers directly flowers are not sentient beings with brains and nervous system

    There was a time people thought eating fish was healty until they discover the benefits of seaweed

  • В Коране сказано: «И внушил Господь твой пчеле: “ Устраивай себе жилища в горах, в деревьях и в людских постройках. Питайся всеми плодами, летай смиренно по путям, устроенным твоим Господом. ”Из внутренностей их питье выходит сладкое различных цветов. В нем есть исцеление и польза для людей. И в этом, поистине, есть знамения для тех людей, которые размышляют» (Сура “Пчелы”, 16:68-69).

  • Please know more about �� honey,
    Almighty tell in holy book �� the Quran,

    Service to human is service to God.

  • This is an AWESOME video! I also have a video about honey ”The Healing Power of Honey” You can check it out
    here! https://youtu.be/5cXy0OQ-Hyo
    Thank You so much and God bless everyone!:)

  • What about sugar from sugar beets. It is the most commonly used sugar in North America. I get inflammation from beet sugar but not from cane sugar

  • Hello Nirupama, just wandering if you knew Hindi. If you do, I wish you could communicate in either Hindi or mixed (Hinglish). See, your contents are very useful and deserve to be spread more. These languages will definitely fulfil the purpose. After all that’s the aim.

  • Perhaps this is a good idea, it’s important to remember portion control. There’s no point in replacing sugar with honey, if you’re gonna become Winnie the Pooh

  • What a fucking idiot.
    You don’t add sugar to baking to make it sweet. You add it as a food source for the yeast to eat.
    If you use half the amount in honey, then the bread won’t rise because there won’t be enough food for the yeast to eat.

  • i call BS! dark honey is heated honey, the heat makes it dark! raw honey >? what is that? you mean pure honey, without addittives! get it from your bee farmers directly or don’t get it at all!

  • You need to justify if its raw honey or the fake honey america sells which 70% of there honey doesn’t contain pollen which cant be labeled honey it literally syrup that has high fructose corn syrup and sugar also doesn’t crystallize real honey crystallize also has great health benefits

  • There are more honey bees today than ever before so the statement that there is 40% less honey bees is false. If he is so wrong on that simple fact everything else he says is suspect.

  • Some guy did the keto diet and his gallbladder became infested with stones. I think before anyone does keto they should make sure their liver is producing enough bile to accommodate all that fat. And I don’t think honey is healthy at all it is no better than table sugar whatsoever.

  • Here in San Diego with the lock down, we started doing a lot more reading on keeping healthy and kept coming across info pertaining to the goodness of honey. It’s been 3 weeks that our family had begun to have a tablespoon each morning and WoW the difference is already showing. BUT, we are not using the run of the mill honeys, our choice after doing a lot of research is _ 100% Pure glutten free Raw and Unfiltered from North American bees and we were able to order it online delivered to our door.
    More on what we found out but ordinary honey blew our minds.. most people are eating honey from many different countries that they doctor it up with fillers before shipping it to company in America and Canada. SOoo much more to learn on what we are putting in our bodies. Your loved ones deserve the ‘Real Deal’ read before you buy!!

  • “Honey is good for weight loss because its sweeter so you can use half as much”.

    That’s doesn’t work for me. I’m drowning my oatmeal in honey.

  • [Quran 16.68-69] And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build. Then eat (for females) from every fruit and follow (for females) your Lord’s enslaved paths, from its bellies (بُطُونِهَا) exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.

  • I think it’s important to differentiate between the everyday processed honey found in supermarkets and unfiltered raw honey, which from what I’ve read has many health benefits.

  • They went to the trouble the walk across the set to the really nicely displayed honey pots, with really nice signs and graphics with some animation, is it more informative this way?… why wasn’t there a check box with a -pa-ting sound?, and why no honey bee buzzing sfx either? “No conveyor belts” huh? That must make the mechanics bill a bit lower I guess, but I’m no expert.

  • When u drink honey..honey will make ur situation getting worse first for those who have illness..honey actually cures you from within..but make sure don’t eat honey that much..only one or two spoons daily in the morning with empty stomach…

  • honey is nice from time to time as a treat, honey can be beneficial when you have a sore throat or a cold, but as a dietary mainstay like they are suggesting here bullshit and any professional dietitian will tell you that… looking for a good sugar replacement then try stevia… admittedly it has a slightly strange at first but you get used to it…

  • For more informative instructions you may get it at this link https://skillsscoop.com/the-healthiest-true-teas-beneficial-for-human-health/

  • why are there preservetives in honey? honey never goes bad… they found honey in the tombs of pharaos… 3-4 thousand years old… that was good to eat.

  • For the recipe with warm water, honey, and lemon juice, does the juice need to be freshly squeezed or can it just be bought in a bottle? ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Eating any type of simple carbohydrate, including sugars such as cane syrup and honey, will cause a spike in glucose and insulin. The more sugars you eat, the faster and higher your blood sugar and insulin will go. There is no advantage to substituting honey for sugar in a diabetes eating plan since both honey and sugar affect your blood sugar and insulin levels.

    Just type in Honey Insulin Spike and read the NHI report and so on.

  • One of my friends is also a chocolate addict. He began eating little pieces of honey comb when he needed a sugar fix. I doubted it’d work. But I tried it. Just a tablespoon or less of the honey comb. A tablespoon was 60 calories but was way better than the chocolate. And it made me not want chocolate.

  • Dr. Berg what about pure maple syrup? Would that be any better to use in place of honey or sugar as a sweetener? Or is it just as bad?

  • Sugar…ah honey honey…..you got me wanting you…..����
    Top tip…if you want to lose weight….doesn’t matter which one you use just walk to the shops to buy it instead of driving….

  • I do a little sometimes no more then two tablespoons in a day because most sugar substitutes kill me. Stevia gives me a headache, erythritol gave me gas, and xylitol and Monk fruit seem to be OK but I don’t trust it. I definitely don’t think you can go too wrong with MANUKA honey. If people cheat with keto cocktails (sometimes) I can eat the honey ����

  • DR OZ:= YOU HAVE VERY BIG MOUTH >>>>> NON OF YOUR MEDICAL ADVISES WORTH A PENNY >>>> YOU JUST BULLSHITTING ON THE (SCREEN)…TRYING TO MAKE A (STAR)!!! = YOU JUST PROMOTING PRODUCT FOR HEALTH FOOD COMPANIES!!! SHUT UP >>>> HONEY IS ALSO EMPTY CALORIES BUT SINGLE SUGAR EASY TO ABSORB!!! HOENY HAS NO NUTREINTS AND ((NO) BENEFITS AT ALL= STOP RANTING AND STOP UR BULLSHIT!!

  • Now what about the disadvantages (bad effects) for example i have read on internet that more Sugar intake weakens the immune system and I mean like almost instantly (not talking about long term ).
    Would the same apply for Honey.And Date is another sugar source that i like could u clarify it for me if it is kind of healthy to eat between meals for people that don’t suffer diabetes.

  • Drinking a cup of water with honey on an empty stomach every day is a recommendation from our beloved prophet Mohammed from over 1400 years:)

  • Thanks for the information checkout my honey bee hive videos to learn more and checkout the apimaye beehives thanks have a good day

  • Wouldn’t the honey and it’s properties be defined by the bees diet.i started having teeth problems, switched to all honey.dentist told me to keep up whatever I was doing. Organic local sourced clover honey.

  • DR. Berg, what about toddlers and kids? what can we give them to eat a variety of meals? We are ok with eating a Paleo-Keto diet… no problem… I actually do.

  • Raw & unprocessed honey is miraculous, no one is saying you should eat multiple table spoon full a day. One table or tea spoon is sufficient. Also be sure to consume local honey.

  • Nonsense! Dietitians of Canada: Bottom line “…Foods like fruit and milk that have naturally occurring sugar are nutritious and are part of a healthy eating plan. Canada’s Food Guide recommends limiting food and drinks that are high in added sugar. Added sugars like honey and agave are no healthier than white sugar and brown sugar…”

  • In America sugar not come from sugarcane. It’s come from. Modified sugar beats. i stopping using sugar for 6 years now. You will feel better
    I know is hard but you only get 1 life to live

  • My grandad lived until age of 100.. his whole entire life he ate huge amount of honey
    He was very fit
    For me it’s hard to believe that honey it’s not good for us

  • In which country on Balkan did this video came from because it says “MED” and that is how you say honey in Bosnia Croatia and some other countries on Balkan

  • Honey is really good especially when its original and 100% natural…if you in Nigeria you can get yours from me cos l am the source before you consume fake honey

  • He 4got to say that Beez throw up the honey 4rm their bellies. But yes I never trust a salesman.. so I dont really believe this dude Dr. OZ

  • Honey should only be eaten on an empty stomach the first thing in the morning and only 1 teaspoon (wooden spoon, never a metal) and only for specific healing purposes, not as a part of breakfast and not on a regular basis. If mixed with other foods, it loses effectiveness

  • Are you even a doctor? What about he fructose in Honey? Fructose that need to be processed by the liver? No mention about it’s adverse health effects.

  • Bees are marvellous friends for humankind!
    They give us a lot of gifts for our health and well being.
    Take a look here:

  • Nonsense! All honey comes liquid from hives. the rest is crystallised during time. That means it is old honey not raw honey. Though nothing bad in it but blah blah is bad

  • Many people don’t understand this as no research has been done. But, as per ancient Indian Medical science ( Ayurveda), honey should never never be heated nor should be mixed with hot fluid.
    But, think in this way, there is a reason why raw honey is available in market.

  • A teaspoon a day of local raw buckwheat honey has dramatically helped my late summer/early fall hay fever symptoms these past few years. But you need to start taking it about 3 months or so in advance of when your allergy season begins.

  • Hey guys!! Apologies for being inconsistent with my videos, had some stuff to take care of. I will hopefully be back on schedule from now on!! Hit the ‘like’ button if you found the video useful. Cheers!

  • Fructose and glucose are the best of all sugary substances to be digested and metabolized by digestive system. No other sugary substances can get the stage of honey as a substitute.
    But it has to be consumed with moderation, because it is very powerful.

  • The explanations are questionable. Honey soothes anxiety because glucose is used as fuel for nerves? Ok.. then by that logic Twinkie’s do the same

  • Wow, so many answered questions that Dr Berg brings up that were just in my mind. Please do a video on ITP. There is such limited information on it.

  • what is honey?  is a browser extension, or add-on, that can save you money by automatically searching for coupons on most of your favorite shopping sites. It’s available for all of the major web browsers, and it’s a lot easier than manually sifting through coupon sites like RetailMeNot and many more

  • Can you have a discussion about athletes that are all on the vertical diet and the benefits and risks versus a ketogenic diet? The only argument I guess they claim is to bulk up.

    Top armwrestler Michael Todd is switching to the vertical diet just right now.

  • He says: “We need the bees, not the honey”

    His explanation: “ these are responsible for a lot of the food that we eat. Sugar contains fructose and glucose. The fructose can only be processed by the liver which damages the liver and can lead to insulin resistance”

    Me: (about to use honey)…. (puts it back in fridge) ��

  • ….Perspective is a little honey won’t hurt you. Replacement for sugar is an INSANE comparison as that would never happen. I could see it now. ” Gee how much honey to replace this 2 cups of sugar 
    that this recipe needs” lmao

  • We are bee keepers. A teaspoon a day keeps the allergies away! �� However, it must be local!! I mix it w/a teaspoon of ACvinegar/drop of essential lemon oil/dash of ginger in 4oz. warm water. The vinegar helps to breakdown the sugar. ��⚡️

  • There’s another reason why honey is better than sugar…honey contains fructose which in cellular metabolism will indirectly lead to one Glycolysis but sugar consists of sucrose(2 glucoses) which in cellular metabolism will directly lead to 2 Glycolysis metabolic pathways

  • Dr Oz needs to study the material better this video was not thought out well.

    One key thing to point out is that by putting honey in tea or oatmeal or baking-it kills the beneficial enzymes sterilizing/pasteurizing it. That temp is 120 even a bit less or the honey cannot be sold as raw. So most of the uses listed in the video even the casual comments by the lady? kills the honey except for the sweetness. True it can be used in baking but then you get little more than the effect of the sweetness.

    Even if you use some honey after ruining it such as cooking or putting in hot items you should at least east some not heated. For tea or oatmeal just bite the bullet and not put the honey in till it drops down to just warm.

    He shows the raw honey and some is like that if it has not been filtered to take out the wax and specks of other things-but the honey is still raw and just as good.

    He further says the term “dark honey”. Raw honey can be different colors based on what the bees were foraging on.

    also to eat raw honey or other sugars a persons gut flora must be in shape by eating fermented foods and not too much sugar because what will happen is the sugar whether honey or not will make the bad flora explode in growth such as candida and others. A good way to test for this is eat some sugar and if your gut flora is out of balance you will get immediate bloating because of the fermentation.

    He quickly mentions honey has some good bacteria and things that babies may not process well. I have a surprise that the honey is regurgitated by the bees into the honeycomb pockets and can quite easily have some botulism. However with good gut flora in place yes we can also handle that and the good bacteria overpower the bad.

    Overall I would say that Dr Oz could benefit by some honest sincere constructive criticism so that he studies better next time.

  • thank you dr berg….im still fat went from 315 to 285 but slowly losing… but 1 thing for sure i dam sure feel better following dr berg advice..compare to the way i use to eat..the number 1 thing is at least im aware of what im eating unlike before i mat dr berg..i eat fruits and fats..now……carbs and sugars is low on my list i doubt if im even getting 20g ah day…but the main thing is i feel alot better even tho i been doing this for ah yr.. i can really feel the diff in my body..again remember folks this is not ah race…soak this info in and you will be healthy for ah lifetime….i doubt if i ever go back to the old way i use to eat which was HIGH CARBS AND SUGARS AND FAST FOODS….this stuff dr berg is talkin i had no clue of health and guess what MILLIONS of ppl is dying cause they dont know this stuff..im from the hood they dont teach this stuff to ppl…i almost feel like the government need to be sued for giving us this crap food…

  • Dr Berg have you researched eating Maple leaves for medicinal purpose. If what I read is true then it could become the next “big thing” in health foods. Amazing properties.

  • It has anti-microbial properties that destroy urinary track infections…and it’s Gods gift to man for sweetness, not that white crap table sugar..

  • I’m about to go on a garlic and honey diet. Eating garlic 2 weeks so far and it’s rid or decreased my kidney stones. So I know it works for that not to mention energy in the morning. No grogginess.

  • This was a great video; however, not giving specific measurements and just saying “two spoonfuls” is not appropriate information. Measuring spoons have distinct measures that help you not overdose even on honey.

  • I used to travel to Abbey Farm more than 60 miles plus round trip, about every, 3 months to pick up enough honey to last me for 90 days. I would also buy the bee pollen oh, and the honey. So I used both on a daily basis, at least two to three weeks before allergy season would hit, or hits…lol! I mixed it with orange juice, yogurt, straight off the sugar spoon, in my drinks especially heated drinks, and I even sir a little bit into my recipes, to balance out the difference between Savory and sweet,or with anything that is better,because it will cut the bitterness. It also helps to relieve inflammation, pain, infection, and more! I mean so much more, as in doctors have not discovered everything just yet, that it can do! I’ve done quite a lot of research on various types of foods in the for the treatment of chronic pain disorders, such as fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, degenerative spine disease and neck disease. So enjoy enjoy enjoy and do your own research! Nite-nite y’all!����

  • So sad to hear that we have 40% of the bees that we did a few years ago. Humans are ruining the planet… so sad… we gotta make a change

  • Have to disagree that the environment is getting more polluted. I remember the seventies and eighties, when raw sewage was being pumped into the ocean, and smoke belched unrestricted from factories. The environment is much cleaner now in advanced western countries. However, in the rest of the world, you may be correct.

  • Hi Dr. Berg, I really enjoy watching your videos. Could you please do a video on Dr Mcdougall’s plant based diet? There seems to be a trend going and I would really like to know your thoughts on it. Thank you:)

  • Which is it??? Did you interchange the two on purpose??? Very misleading, left to the comment section to clarify, even they don’t seem to agree…

  • I eat honey all day I threw away all junk food and water is all I drink I don’t miss the junk food at all I have lost 1″ around my waist my joints feel great I love the change I made

  • I drink 2-3 cups of English black Tea everyday each prepared with 1 tablespoon of raw honey and a dollop of whole milk.. put the kettle on.

  • To those with allergies; find a honey supplier LOCAL to where you reside. The bees that make this local honey use nectar from some or all of the plants that cause your symptoms. Then these nectars are processed ONLY by the BEES and in such minute quantities that will stimulate your body to produce an immunity to the “once upon a time” plants that used to cause you such grief!!!

  • Quran, Chapter 16, Verse 69-69:
    “And your Lord inspired to the bee, “Take for yourself among the mountains, houses, and among the trees and [in] that which they construct.
    Then eat from all the fruits and follow the ways of your Lord laid down [for you].” There emerges from their bellies a drink, varying in colors, in which there is healing for people. Indeed in that is a sign for a people who give thought.”

  • Hello, I am not diabetic but when I drink a glass of cranberry juice, suddenly i feel super tired and even sleepy sometimes. I try to stay away from alcohol so orange juice and cranberry juice is what I lean towards when I am out somewhere; however, I get this feeling which worries me.
    Also I substituted sugar to honey buy as I was looking at the nutritional value of both the ones I had, I read the sugar content on the Sugar was 4g versus 16g in my Kelly’s honey; the carbohydrate content was respectively 4g versus 17g which made me think that sugar could be better which is why i looked it up and came across your video for an opinion

  • Let’s be clear here. This is a very one-sided argument. Honey is extremely concentrated natural sugar, therefore, it is extremely high in calories, so be careful, because, eating too much of it, particularly, more than the calories you are expending in a day, will make you put on weight very quickly. If you want the health benefits then a small spoonful per day should probably be your limit, as long as you aren’t also eating tons of other calories from other sources or other sugars.
