So I've been going to the gym regularly, but I still enjoy eating a candy bar, or having a coke in the evening. How much is too much to eat/consume for sugar a day? Can I still lift/see results/and enjoy my cake too?
Ohno saidUsually I am in favour of cutting sugar but if you are an ectomorph it might be less important. Your first priority when working for size gains should be to get 1.5 to 2g protein per kg of body mass. If eating sugary stuff is filling you up and stopping you hitting that target then cut down. Also, keep an eye on your body fat - some ectos have higher body fat than they realise. Finally consider the other health issues of sugar like diabetes and possible link to dementia in the long term.
Hope that is useful.
