A recent study in the British Medical Journal basically said that reducing sugar intake only provided a marginal reduction in weight loss in adults and none in children. Sugar in any form is but a small portion of the ultimate problem of overconsumption in this country. Now, heavily sugared drinks that offer less satiety should of course be reduced but simply changing out one type of sugar for another or replacing sugars with other carbs, fats or proteins wont solve the problem either.
