 How much sugar and salt do you need everyday? 

Sugar:
Technically, the amount of sugar you consume depends on how many calories you are allowed to consume each day. An important point to note here is that since sugar has no nutritional benefits, the calories you get from it will always be extra calories, i.e., calories that a healthy diet does not account for on a daily basis. These are extra calories that you can consume when you have meet your nutritional needs.

Divide this amount with the number of calories per gram of sugar, and you will know how much excess sugar you can have.

A safe estimate suggests that you can consume 70gms of sugar (men) and 50g (women), but it also depends on your age, weight and how active you are through the day.
