Surprise, surprise, eating too much sugar causes weight gain, but why exactly? Well, when we eat too much sucrose or fructose our livers collect it, process it into fat and send it out to be stored in our fat cells. The result is weight gain.
Also sugary foods tend to be less filling. All those wonderful cakes and ice cream have very little to no protein. Protein is usually what signals the brain that we have had enough to eat. Foods containing high sugar and little protein cause us to overeat. You will not only overeat at that one meal, but since it is a low nutritional food our body then gets hungry more often making us snack or eat throughout the day.
