A little bit is not gonna hurt you, but sugar should be kept to a minimum. But a few grams here and there will do nothing, assuming you have no sugar-related health problems.

sugar will compound the insulin spike you're getting from the caffiene, no?

switch to decaf and drink it black if you're concerned

or not

depends on your diet and goals.

simple carbs (sugars) are wonderful for getting a carb load part of a diet rolling...but basically they are empty calories. they have no volume (so they dont fill you up) and all they do is pack a carb punch with no associated vitamins, minerals or fibre. they also rot your teeth and give you spots. they cause blood sugar spikes which dosnt help at all.

oh and you momma prolly told you not to eat sweets too so thats got to be a good reason. mind you my mom said stuff about the wind changing but im still pulling faces.
