Kenya, a renowned daredevil, was dared to eat 10 grams of sugar for $5 by her friend, Keisha. "You'll ruin your diet, Kenya! All that fat!" said her friend, Asia. "No, I won't. It'll just raise my blood sugar a little bit." Kenya replied. Who was correct?


Kenya was correct. Raw or powdered sugar does not contain fat, no matter how much you eat of it.

true, sugar contains no fat, but is is a type of carbohydrate that provides quick energy for the body; if the energy is not used, it will turn into body fat anyways..

10 grams of sugar is not all that much when you think about the fact that one can of coke has 39 grams of sugar in it.

Its pretty obvius...

Although sugar is a simple carbohydrate that is stored in the body as fat if it is not utilized, if one were to walk around briskly for a small amount of time, the energy from the 10 grams of sugar would be utilized unless it was preceded by a large dose of carbs. Good teaser, but you might want to amp it up a bit.

I liked it, and I am sure a lot of people have learned a lot from the comments!

Didn't really care for this one.

Sugar is not stored as fat if unused (as suggested by a couple of people). Insulin is released as blood sugar levels rise leading to glycolysis, a complex process where the sugar is broken down into simpler structures that can be used for intracellular energy or restored to glucose if blood sugar levels fall too low by the release of glucagon. The reason sugar is not advised in a calorie-controlled diet is it is an easy energy source for the body to use, much more easily used than all the fat in my spare tyre, anyway. Wow, that was way more complicated than the teaser deserved, but it is correct.
Aug 19, 2006

I knew that!
Jun 14, 2007

You realize 10 grams is less than a quarter of the sugar in a can of coke. And no 'duh' there is no fat in's sugar. But that doesn't mean "no matter how much of it you eat" is ok because that will raise your blood sugar "more than a little bit" if you eat a lot. But again 10 grams is extremely minscule (do you know that word?) and would not call someone eating that for $5 a "daredevil." However, I would call the one paying the $5 an idiot.
