A new study reveals cutting down on sugar has a small but definite effect on weight loss among adults.
Researchers found when study participants were told to reduce their sugar consumption, they lost an average of 1.8 pounds.
Those told to increase their sugar intake gained an average of 1.6 pounds.
Although the data was less consistent in children, kids who drank the most sugar sweetened beverages had a higher risk of being obese than those who drank the least.
