Heh, I've been telling my son for years that sugar makes you weak. It hasn't stopped him from asking for dessert after dinner, but he typically eats a very small amount of dessert. He never gets sugar at lunch or breakfast. He also very rarely gets to drink soda. Once in a while I'll let him have one of those natural root beers or an Izze.
So, I was recently simultaneously pleased and embarrassed when his friend's mother told me the following story after he spent the night at his friend's house. For breakfast, she offered them one of those super sugary cereals. I think it was Fruit Loops. Horrified, my son asked if his friend's mother loved him, and if she did, why was she giving him a breakfast filled with sugar?

And if more people's kids were like yours, there'd be less of other people's kids.

Sugar flat-out wrecks your endocrine system in enough amounts, and our species never evolved to process it in large quantities.
Fat, however, is what our ancestors sought out, going so far as to crack bones for their marrow and smash in skulls to get fatty brain tissue.

I would like to agree completely that sugar is addictive.
I would also like to say, mainly directed at Bneterasedmynam, consuming a ton of sugar and not getting fat doesn't mean you aren't guna get diabetes. I use to go through a liter bucket of mnm's in like, a fuckin week, and similar things that are just as bad and I've been 60kgs since I was 15 years old and stayed that way till I was 25.
I eat as little sugar as possible now but the point I'm trying to make is you can be fit on the outside and have fucked organs. -thumbs up-

I read the first few posts. Wish I hadn't. I had to search for the word 'obese' in dictionary.
When I was young we simply said 'Hey you fat fu+ktard, I think you should stuff a carrot where that BigMac just went a bit more often.'
'Hey obese gentleman, could you haul your load here so I can tell you how I think you should watch over your dietary and exercise habbits a bit closer?'
