Hi - have been reading with interest the latest theories and research on the effect of sugar and insulin resistance. I'm overweight and eat far, far too much sugar. I'm wondering if anyone here has come across any guidelines as to how much sugar would be acceptable in a diet seeking to improve insulin resistance. I'm not ready to go 'cold turkey' but would like to reduce the sugar in my diet to a healthy (and for me - a realistically achievable) level. Do such guidelines exist - is there an 'acceptable range' for 'healthy' sugar consumption? Perhaps x number of grams per day?
I love this forum - I've read it daily for months - though I think this might be my first post. There seems to be such a wealth of knowledgeable and helpful contributors - I'm hoping to learn from those more informed than me about the numbers I should be aiming for - with thanks in anticipation 😊 Rachel
