Cut Back on Sugar to Lose Some Weight

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 16 (HealthDay News) -- Cutting back on sugar intake can help adults lose weight and should be part of the strategy to fight the global obesity epidemic, a new study suggests.

Meanwhile, increasing free sugar intake was linked to a weight gain of 1.7 pounds.

The researchers acknowledged that the findings were limited by the fact that few of the studies they analyzed lasted longer than 10 weeks. They concluded, however, "when considering the rapid weight gain that occurs after an increased intake of sugars, it seems reasonable to conclude that advice relating to sugars intake is a relevant component of a strategy to reduce the high risk of overweight and obesity in most countries."

Although the effects on children were less clear, the study authors noted that children with greater sugar intake were at greater risk for being overweight or obese.
