Sugar intake associated with lower weight in men

Higher sugar intake is associated with lower body weight in men, but not in women according to Gibson (1996). Men who consumed more sugar were thinner than men consuming less sugar (Gibson, 1996). This was true even in men consuming a high-fat diet containing more than 40 percent of their calories as fat, and after adjusting for age, smoking, energy, fat intake, and dieting.
Consumption of the main sugary fatty foods including cakes, biscuits, confectionery and puddings averaged 12 percent of calories for men, 14.9 percent of calories for women (Gibson, 1996).
