Re: “Sweet showdown

When evaluating one’s diet, added sugars are not solely or even significantly responsible for obesity. This serious condition arises from consuming too many calories from all dietary sources over a prolonged period of time with no compensating increase in exercise. In the past 35 years, daily calorie intake for the average American has risen 25%. While energy from cereals/flour and fats rose by 200 and 300 calories/day, respectively, during this period, energy from sugars increased by only 55 calories/day. At just 1/10th of the total calorie increase, added sugars are clearly not the primary cause of obesity. (U.S. Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service. 2009. Calories: average daily per capita calories from the U.S. food supply, adjusted for spoilage and other waste. Loss-Adjusted Food Availability Data.…)

As many dietitians agree, all sugars should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced lifestyle.
