Women -21 grams
Men - 30 grams


Yes, you can, and it may leave you constipated if you don't drink enough water. Anything over 50g is considered too much. You should stay below 45 grams, and the ideal amounts are listed above.


Of course all of these are pending what your actual doctor's recommendation is and should not be taken as the standard.
