My fitness pal only allows 27g of sugar a day, how am I supposed to eat fruits and dairy without going over? One cup of skim milk has 12g and one apple has anywhere between 13 and 25g. How is it possible to stay within the range and still get the nutrients I need? Please someone help me!

I just don't track sugar b/c of this. It's nearly impossible.

Unless you have a reason to watch your sugar ie diabetes, and your sugar is only coming from whole foods, then don't worry about it.

I track sugar because I have. Tendency to eat way too much. But, I don't worry about going over the MFP set amount. I DO manually deduct the grams that come from WHOLE fruit and dairy, and try to keep my "processed" sugars under the MFP limit.

Ok, thank you so much!

We will definitely look into the possibility of distinguishing between sugars for a future update.

For now, what many users do to work around this is, they create a new meal category and label it something like "fruits and vegetables". This way they can see how much natural sugar intake they actually had for the day. To add to or change your meal names, click on "My Home", then "Settings", then "Diary Settings". At the top of that page is an area where you can change your meal names as well as add two additional meals if you'd like.
