The statistic sounds insane, but I'd believe it. I live in a college dorm, and I see everybody eating all manner of chocolatey/sugary foods and downing energy drinks like Amp and Rockstar all day. But I do have to wonder if it counts 'outlier' days where your sugar intake typically skyrockets - it's not Christmas or Thanksgiving every day.
My regular intake is 64g per day, plus whatever I get from dinner. It sounds high to me, but according to the FDA
you need at least 275 grams of carbohydrates that aren't from fiber, so all things considered I guess it's not too bad. Then again, it's the FDA, so for all we know there's politics involved with the food vendors.
If you considered the artificial sweeteners in Diet Mountain Dew, though, I might be closer to the figure.
