Sugar is for short term energy ... that's its role.
Degree or will power, or call it what you will.
But here again, I would argue that since protein requirements are wildly exaggerated, Haub got plenty of it with his one protein shake, can of green beans, and whatever very small amount found in his various sugary treats. Bear in mind that although this was intended as a short-term experiment, the results shocked a nutrition professor.
And I regularly meet people who complain that when willpower was doled out that they got the short end of the stick. I tell them just to pretend that willpower doesn't exist and then we go from there.
