I'm trying to establish a threshold for consumption of sugar. This is mainly geared at fat loss as I'm currently attempting to break through into single digit bf%. Many people on here agree that avoiding sugar leads to weight loss, (I understand individual results vary) but what should this target be? Would it be 0? say 25 g? Would this be higher on re-feed days if that was the method I was using to strip the bf? I've heard mercola say no fructose PWO as it affects GH (i think) but Martin over at leangains consumes a lot of fruit while maintaing very low bf%. Also, does it matter what type of sugar? i.e. sugar in Organic cottage cheese, or raw dairy? Should I avoid these, or not worry?
Sorry, for the long post, but I've been stuck at this point for 2-3 months. I'm 5'7 and weigh 158-161 on average. Remaining body fat is almost completely in lower back region with a small amount around the belly button.
Edit: I think I worded this wrong. At what point does sugar halt weight loss? For instance, If I consume 4 squares of Lindt 90% (3g sugar), or say a Tanka bar (6g sugar) am I shooting myself in the foot for venturing into weight loss / single digit body fat % range?
