    I still haven't seen compelling evidence that sugar is causally the problem. I fully believe that obesity is one of the worst possible states for a number of health markers, and that obesity coupled with low activity levels absolutely ravages the human body. So I get frustrated when sugar is demonized (the same way fat was demonized 35 years ago, dietary cholesterol was demonized 25 years ago, and carbs were demonized 10 years ago).

    Sugar seems to be well-tolerated in many healthy-weight individuals; as is dietary fat, dietary cholesterol, salt, carbohydrates, artificial sweeteners, etc. If you want to pick a bad guy, obesity (and by proxy: excess calories and sedentary lifestyles) is your supervillain.

    But yeah, it's complicated.

    sugar is good for you
    it's my main dietary suppliment
    the trick is to keep consuming sugar all day constantly so you don't crash

    I have experimented with obtaining 100% of my calories from alcoholic beverages. I didnt gain weight, but I felt like death after day 4 and would not recommend this diet. YMMV.

    You don't gain any weight doing that before your 40s..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    The only sugar I consume is in fruit and beer.

    You just canít waste it on anything else.

    The idea of abstaining from fruit on health grounds strikes me as completely misguided. Same goes for banana cream pie.

    Banana cream pie has 3 of the 4 food groups. Pizza OTOH has all of them, unless you consider a pizza without pepperoni to be a pizza.

    No. Excess calories lead to obesity, whether those calories come from protein, fat, or carbs (including sugar). In fact, since fat is more calorie dense than carbs, you could make a sound argument that fat is more to blame. But for most folks, it's about a 50/50 mix of fat and carbs.

    Very few people enjoy eating plain carbs (ex: flour), very few people enjoy eating plain sugar (ex: table sugar), and very few people enjoy eating plain fat (ex: butter); it's usually the mix of fat, sugar, and carbs that people are "addicted" to (ex: cookies). More than one person has called the mix of fat and sugar a "caloric speedball" for the brain.

    " Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the nutrition department at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, said that academic conflict-of-interest rules had changed significantly since the 1960s, but that the industry papers were a reminder of “why research should be supported by public funding rather than depending on industry funding.”

    Dr. Willett said the researchers had limited data to assess the relative risks of sugar and fat. “Given the data that we have today, we have shown the refined carbohydrates and especially sugar-sweetened beverages are risk factors for cardiovascular disease, but that the type of dietary fat is also very important,” he said. "

    if you believe this ^^ back in the 60's the big sugar lobby paid off scientists to blame Fat so people ate low fat/high sugar foods but its accepted science nowdays that eating some fat is not what makes you fat,

    if you read the article ^^ it is talking about sugar causing coronary heart disease,

    So I wonder if that is due to Obesity ?


    Moderation is probably the key cuz there is nothing wrong with 1 cookie its eating half the pack in one go, so does sugar make people do that ?



    here is some Big Sugar for ya ^^ Canadian eh was a big part of the Canadian music scene

    Unfortunatley the rastamon who was a big part of the bands sound succumbed to cancer fairly young ... don't know if it was due to sugar

    Oh yeah; I'd take salt over sugar.
    You'd think I'd be dead by now.

    Sugar clearly has had a better marketing team than salt.

    I'm pretty sugar free these days. Most of my sweet calories come from high fructose corn syrup instead. That's way better right??
