The high sugar model did not prove to be a good model of obesity

Excess sugar consumption doesn't necessarily make you fat, if you have sufficient nutrients to use the carbs.

"but the daily caloric intake was higher in the HS group in relation to the C and HFHS groups (HS: 92 ± 2.0 vs. C: 79.2 ± 2.6 and HFHS: 77.3 ± 1.7 kcal/day, p < 0.05)."

And yet, despite higher caloric intake, these mice were just as lean as the control group.

Where i live, products such as cereals and fruit juice conentrates are fortified with vitamins (which i assume are synthetic).

Is this still better than "lacking" the vitamins?


I would love to see a study where obesity was induced by heavy sugar consumptions with a low nutrient density diet and then have them add nutrient dense foods along with the sugar in humans.

Animal studies always leave this "but does it work that way for us too?" feeling/thought that i can't shake of.
The fact that some people suffer with sugar despite their vitamin intake doesn't make understanding the complexity that is biology any easier :grimacing:
