    This would be allowed under Ignite. Under Ignite, you shouldn't exceed 20 grams of total sugar per meal. Being as your coconut water has 15 grams of natural sugar, you'd still be within the guidelines. We even actually have a recipe in our Ignite guide for a pina colada shake that uses coconut water. You can check it out here: http://dailyburn.com/recipes/... .

      Its not actually possible really to have no sugar at all. The real rule is no added sugar. Pretty much all fruits and veggies naturally have some sugar in them. Ever walked down the canned fruit isle and seen all the containers that say no sugar added, that doesnt mean no sugar at all it just means they didnt add any. Kinda the same concept your going for here, dont add extra to what nature made. Hope that helps explain it a bit better.

      i think it is a little more clear now. so i have the silk coconut milk(vanilla) it has in nutrition 9gr sugar and the ingredients say natural evaporated cane sugar- is that considered a natural sugar from the coconut like all fruits have or would that be considered artificial? is this ok on ignite? is this where the 15gr/meal make it allowable? I will get this. :)
