No sugar is good sugar. Better to eat an orange than drink orange juice. A dietician once told me orange juice is just empty calories. True it offers some vitamin C but mostly it's just calories. Eat the orange and drink some water or some other zero calorie beverage.

As long as you're balancing your diet with fiber, protein, and all your vitamins and minerals, you should be fine with small amounts of sugar.

Are you doing a low-carb diet, because your sugar intake seems very small to me?
