Despite the many accumulative causes of fat gain, sugar has been branded by many foolish nutrition fanatics as the sole perpetrator. ‘Qualified’ practitioners continue to deliver claims that consumption of sugar will result in an ‘anti-metabolic’ style malfunction, causing more relative fat gain than any other calorie source. This is of course a fabrication of truth.
Sugar is a carbohydrate. In isolation, it contains 4 calories per gram and does not contain any nutrients, fibre or satiating qualities. Whilst lack of satiety may subjectively lead to excessive consumption of more calories, this presumptive permutation can be applied after consumption of any food, regardless of sugar quantity. Furthermore, an individual has the conscious choice to consume more food or not.
100g of sugar amounts to 400 calories. But 100g of sugar within this selection of consumable food amounts to 1308 calories. This directly shows us that there are 908 non-sugar comprising calories within these foods. Additionally, that some relatively ‘high sugar’, palatable foods are also high in overall calories anyway.
As evidence has shown those who wish to comprehend it, a calorie surplus (by whatever means) causes fat gain. Therefore, whilst ratios of sugar and other calorie sources may subjectively nurture satiety and food related behaviour, consumption of sugar does not inherently affect the possibility of fat gain to an individual any more so than consumption of any food. Over time, consumption of too many total calories for the amount an individual moves will result in fat gain, regardless of sugar’s presence within those calories consumed.
Eating/drinking sugar may well contribute to fat gain. But only in unison with many other deep rooted nutritional, behavioral and psychological variables; all of which result in the obesity catalyst - a consistent state of caloric surplus. Sugar is merely another pseudo culprit. And it is unfounded.🤜🤛
