  • i would also like to be able to track sugar in my nutrition tracking. It would help us all to see even more so how much of it we are eating and become more aware of it. - 4/27/2015 9:20:12 PM
  • I also would appreciate having sugar as a nutrient to track. I suggested this to Spark a while ago. - 4/23/2015 2:26:16 PM
  • I agree with the other comments. Sugar has so many "names" and not all recipes shared deliniate them separately. Sugar is our undoing and we need to be able to track it easily. Please allow us to at least add it as a nutrient to trak for ourselves. I may be forced to use a different site to track my food, whick I don't want to have to do. Thanks. - 4/23/2015 12:22:53 PM
  • fyi you can track sugar (Sucrose, glucose, maltose, galatose etc) by going to tools and settings, add a nutrient, from pull down select sugar names. - 4/4/2015 1:27:37 AM
  • Scary. I hope I do not eat any where near that amount. I know some co workers who drink 3 cans of coke a day -yeah they might be skinny NOW but I can't help but think what they are doing to their insides. - 3/23/2015 9:21:37 PM
  • 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
  • That's why I'd like to see sugar added to the food tracker. Yes, I did read your answer for why it's not, but I really feel 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! - 11/23/2014 3:25:40 PM
  • White bread affects me like sugar. My pre diabetes is poking its nasty head. - 10/28/2014 9:43:28 PM

  • 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
  • 1tsp sugar weighs 4.2 grams. per my scale. - 9/28/2014 6:09:15 PM
