ive been drinking an entire bottle of soymilk a day because of the calories, protien, good fat, and potassium. I mix some in with my protein shake. but i was wondering how much sugar is too much? since soymilk is high in sugar, and as are the bagels I'm eating.
Don't you have unsweetend soymilk where you live? I use soymilk with zero sugar only.
so how much sugar should I be getting daily?
You don't need any sugar, not a single gram. It's only for taste.
and how many grams should I not go above?
Sugar has no benefits except taste, so the less you eat the better it is. Sugar adds calories, which is not so bad if you need lots, but it has zero other nutritients, no vitamins, no minerals, no trace elements. But while it provides calories, it needs nutritients to be metabolized, so it "robs" your body of vitamins/minerals, because it uses them but comes with none.
There are some ailments linked to high sugar intake. I think it's best to avoid is as far as possible. If you eat/drink sugar, it's best after workout or after a meal, as a dessert.
isnt it true that too much sugar messes with your protein?
I've never heard of that.
