Myth number 3….Sugar in your diet will make you gain weight.  The truth is, sugar which comes in many forms is a necessary part of your daily diet.  In the average diet sugar is a portion of our consumption.  Along with fat, protein, fiber, water and essential nutrients, sugar is used for immediate and short term energy.  While ”processed” sugar (all the healthy components removed) can increase the chances of Diabetes and rot your teeth, it’s not the culprit responsible for fat gain or loss.  It is the number of calories consumed vs. the number burned that causes this loss or gain.
