I track my food intake every day on a pretty reliable app (waiting for Skimble to release one!!).
The app says my 'goal' for daily sugar intake is 88g. That seems like a lot, but it really adds up fast. I try to limit eating anything with added sugar like most cereals, ice cream, etc.
Even with that, I usually go over the 88g goal. I find that most of the time it's due to the fresh fruit I eat with breakfast and as snacks. Is this ok?? Any advice??

Fruits are good but you have to watch out for the ones with high fructose content. They can spike sugar levels and the body actually has a bit of difficulty processing the fructose itself in high quantities and tends to store it as fat when it is consumed in excess. I recommend doing your own research on what kinds of foods you like but cutting out wheat and refined sugars should help a great deal as well as replacing certain sugars with stevia or other natural sweeteners.

This should explain the fructose content :
