Why Sugar is Linked to Weight Gain

Halloween is around the corner, which sets off an increase in sugar consumption for most of us. Sometimes, that can last all the way through Thanksgiving and the holidays! It's tough to get off the sugar addiction roller coaster. It gives us a temporary lift but sugar is a fake friend. An hour or two later, it leaves us hungrier, with more cravings, and often feeling grumpy or exhausted. Not only that, sugar affects our weight. The spike in blood sugar and following dip encourages our body to store that excess energy as fat. Sugar is made up of glucose and fructose- the glucose is turned into energy for our cells, but the fructose is only metabolized by the liver and mostly stored as fat
