Should You Adopt A “Sugar-Free” Lifestyle?

Sugar seems as if it is everywhere, and it is one of the few pleasures that has an almost universal appeal worldwide. Perhaps your weakness is pistachio ice cream, brownies with nuts, or pancakes covered with syrup.  Many of us crave sweets—sometimes throughout the day.  Some of us may even be addicted to sugar.  The problem is, large helpings of sugary foods can lead to substantial weight gain.  But eating sugar-free does not necessarily guarantee weight loss. A food may be sugar-free and still contain a great amount of calories and carbohydrates.  You may be thinking that you can lose weight simply by using sugar substitutes.  However, many sugar substitutes increase your intake of both calories and carbs.   For instance, the sugar substitute fructose adds calories and carbs to your daily diet.  These types of sugar substitutes are often called sugar alcohols or polyols.
