  • I would like to see sugar tracked. I have looked for that to add to my tracking and it wasn't available. I believe it would be good to have there. - 12/18/2014 4:53:59 PM
  • I did not see in items to track where we can track sugar intake, I know on other sites I have been able too, or have I just missed it. Any help in this would be appreciated. - 12/18/2014 1:00:13 PM
  • It would be beneficial to me as well, to track sugar. - 12/18/2014 11:50:00 AM
  • i stopped using white sugar from the bowl over 45 yrs ago. i knew back then it did nasty things to me and my digestion,
    natural occurring as in fruits, honey etc sparingly - 12/18/2014 11:13:28 AM
  • I am very disappointed that you don't include sugar in your tracker. Yes, I too read your answer for why it's not, I also agree that is more a political statement. Percentages and amounts of sugar are listed on the nutritional labels. Using that would be a good start, hidden sugars, fats, gluten are all out there, that's a fact of life, unfortunately. Please add sugar to your tracker! I have been forced to start tracking my food on an Excel spreadsheet since you don't include sugar and I am doing the Stop Only Sugar diet and need to try and eat 20 or less grams of sugar a day and 30 or more grams of fiber a day. Two very important things to be able to track from a weight loss/nutritional point of view! - 12/18/2014 8:40:35 AM

  • A metric teaspoon has 5 grams
    A metric tablespoon has 20 grams
    It usually works similar to liquids whereas a teaspoon equals 5ml - 9/29/2014 4:56:43 AM

  • how many grams is 6 tsp equal? - 9/28/2014 9:28:57 AM
  • Sugar can kill, people who are diabetic like me need to seriously watch it. Watch the so called "healthy" processed foods, like instant oatmeal. Look at the sugar content and the Carbohydrates, and the fiber. If the fiber is above 4 grams, then half of the fiber can be subtracted from the Carbs,( since Fiber is passed through the body instead of absorbed) I do have instant oatmeal, but I choose a "weight control" or a "Low Sugar" option. READ your labels. Fruit is okay unless you are a diabetic like me, then you need to watch it. My nutritionist once told me that if everyone ate like a Diabetic they'd be healthier. - 8/14/2014 3:48:14 PM
  • This would have been more helpful if it had told you how many grams is in 1 tsp of sugar.
    Or if it had put together some products eaten over the course of a day to show what 6 tsp of sugar looks like in real life - 7/31/2014 7:30:10 AM
