Eating more sugar makes kids and teens thin (and probably adults too)

Eating more sugar makes kids and teens thin (and probably adults too)

This is a new study that will blow a lot of my new subscribers away.

Some of them will be so shaken that they won’t ever be able to return to the Daily Medical Discoveries newsletter.

As you know, I’ve been talking about the benefits of sugar for quite a long time.

And I’ve been showing you that sugar does NOT make you fat.

Sugar does NOT make you diabetic.

If you look at the diets of the most long-lived people in the world, you notice something surprising.

These people all eat a diet made mostly of carbohydrates!

And carbohydrates turn into sugar in the body.

In fact, most good diets are high sugar.

If you look at it, there is only one difference between sugar and carbohydrate.

Carbohydrates consist of long chains of sugar molecules.

The body turns carbs into sugar by breaking these chains.

So here’s a new study that I want to show you.

It’s my least favorite type of study, but you’ll see why I think it’s still a good study.

It’s a meta-study, a study of studies.

A meta-study is a compilation of many other studies.

And before you ask me how much the researchers got paid, none of them are in bed with any food companies.

The study seems to be quite objective.

So, the researchers wanted to determine what makes children and adolescents fat.

If we could find this out, we can find out what makes adults fat, and we can find out how to stop it.

It’s popularly believed that kids who eat lots of ice cream, candy, soda, and other sweets are going to be fat.

But the study turns that belief on its head.

As the researchers say, when they started the study, they believed that:

higher total, chocolate, and non-chocolate confectionery consumption would be associated with higher odds of overweight, obesity, and other obesity-related outcomes.

So, that’s what they set out to prove — that sweets really are the culprit.

They wanted to answer the questions, “does sugar cause diabetes?”

And “does sugar cause obesity?”

They were SURE they knew the answer would be YES.

However, rather than proving that, they completely disproved their theory!

They proved that sweets do NOT make children and adolescents fat!

The researchers found that every single study done properly showed the same thing.

These studies showed that greater consumption of sugar during childhood and adolescence actually lowered fat levels!

And they lowered obesity levels.

All meta-analyses pointed to consistent inverse associations of confectionery consumption with overweight and obesity.

“Consistent inverse associations” is science language — it means that it is the opposite of what you think.

Note what they are saying — if children and adolescents consume more sweets, they’re actually thinner.

That’s what this study means.

The authors struggle to explain why consuming more sugar makes kids and teenagers thinner.

How do they explain this effect of sugar on health?

For example, perhaps consuming sweets lowers your appetite.

Perhaps people who are going to gain weight unconsciously consume less.

Maybe consuming more sugar lowers fat consumption and lowers overall calorie consumption.

Regardless of the reason, it is very clear from many studies that consuming more sugar lowers obesity.

It lowers body fat and makes it less likely that you will have weight problems.

This is true of children and adolescents in the study — it’s also true of adults in other studies.

I have a theory for why children and teenagers who consume more sugar are thinner.

I believe that they consume fewer bad fats as a result of eating the sugar.

Sugar also speeds up the metabolism.

Sweet sugar keeps cortisol and stress hormones low in children, teenagers, and adults.

So, if you want to be thin, consume more sugar.
