Personally I consider sugar to be one of the worst foods you can eat. (There is scientific evidence to back me up, check out Sugar Shock Blog if you want to know more about the effects of sugar.) Anyone who is trying to lose weight probably wants to avoid sugar, no matter what kind of diet you are following. After all, it's nothing but empty calories, with no nutritional value to speak of.

In a nutshell, she concluded maybe real sugar isn't always better tasting. (But then, some of us already knew that, didn't we?) Read the whole article here.
