Obesity and Sugar Intake

Excess body fat (obesity) arises from the energy imbalance caused by taking in too much energy and using too little.

It has been suggested that sugar plays a major role in the etiology of obesity. However, there are several arguments against this hypothesis.

  • First, sugars suppress appetite to the same extent as other carbohydrates.
  • Second, there is no relationship between the per capita amount of sugar available in the food supply and the incidence of obesity in the population.
  • Third, epidemiologic studies show an inverse relationship between sugar intake and obesity and a direct relationship between obesity and fat intake and the ratio of fat to sugar in the diet.

Obesity is a Complex Issue

Obesity is a complex problem and its cause cannot be simply attributed to any one component of the food supply.
