    Does sugar really cause weight gain?

    Say you're eating the right calories, exercise and strength training. But you have like some sugar left in your diet. Will it keep on the pounds? Or is that a myth?

    Assuming correct calories/macros (as you seem to be), MYTH. A little sugar isn't going to hurt you. Some people eat a little and want a lot, so that can be an issue if it leads you to bingeing or something. I've lost 40 lbs. eating sugar daily. No big deal.

    If you're not eating a lot of it I wouldn't be too concerned.

    I eat a met-rx colossal 100 bar daily as an inbetween meal. They usually have 20-30g of sugar and I just had a big fat drop a few days ago so it's not a big deal.

    Some sugar after a workout is never a bad thing. I wouldn't go crazy on the cupcakes though.

    Sugar alone does not cause weight gain. Excess calories cause weight gain.

    All carbs are digested and used by the body in the form of glucose. The only difference is that for example sugar will be devoid of nutrients found in oatmeal or a potato.

    So in other words; sugar is perfectly fine in moderation and assuming your macros and calories are in check, sugar will not cause weight gain nor stall fat loss.

    since carbs tend to make you hold on to water, the only weight it would add (assuming a deficit) would be water weight. however youd have to be eating a pretty substantial amount of carbs (or sugar) to have that have a big enough effect to ADD weight

    sugar is not addictive, and what do you mean not good for your system? sugar provides the body with quick energy and if your in caloric deficit your not going to store it as fat since the definition of deficit is your body will be burning ALL calories you consume plus fat you already have stored.

    highly overrated bro science. if you have any fat or protein with sugar it results in evening out the spike. plus the gh levels are very very very small in terms of fat loss importance compared to calorie burning.

    Sugar can be addictive to some. I had an addiction to sweet tea and cokes and sweet stuff. But there is sugar that isn't sweet -we dont think about sugar being in ketchup , mayo, and bread, but its there.

    I guess everyone has done a good job in answering my question, though. Since sugar is a problem for me, Im trying to limit it .

    Excess calorie- and carb-intake (water-weight) cause you to gain weight.

    The only problem with sugar is it in everything. And it does not matter if its sucrose, dextrose, fructose or whatever, sugar is sugar. You can find products in the supermarket that say "Sugar Free" but it has a ton of corn syrup, which is sugar in a different form. Like snooks86 said, everything in moderation. I see no reason to avoid sugar, unless you have been instructed to do so by a doctor.

    I stay away from sugar, because it gives you cravings for more and it tends to make you eat more unhealthy.
