Eating too much of it is associated with obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. But, again, delicious.

So, BuzzFeed Health reached out to two experts from Precision Nutrition: Krista Scott-Dixon, director of education, and registered dietitian Brian St. Pierre; plus Dr. Holly Lofton, director of the Medical Weight Management Program at NYU Langone Medical Center. Here are their tips for understanding your sugar cravings and learning how to lessen them.

First, figure out whether or not you really need to cut down on sugar.

Not everyone needs to make it a goal to eat less added sugar. If you’re meeting your goals for health, performance in your workouts, and body composition, and you feel good, you might be doing just fine with your present intake, says St. Pierre. As BuzzFeed Health has previously reported, if you eat a healthy and balanced diet of whole and minimally processed foods, having a couple cookies regularly probably isn’t something to worry about. So if that’s the case, maybe just keep enjoying those sweets.

The American Heart Association recommends limiting added sugar to 6–9 teaspoons a day, or 24–36 grams. To put that into context, there are almost 10 teaspoons of added sugar in one 12-ounce can of soda. So just one soft drink could put you over that limit, not to mention that about 75% of all packaged foods contain added sugar, too. That means that if you regularly have soda and some sweets every day, you’re probably well above that recommendation.
