Everyone says it has to do w/ sugars having high GI, but fruit and milk both have relatively low GI. The other argument is that sugars are quickly absorbed and don't give you sustained energy, but seeing as we eat every three hours I don't see why that is a problem either. I think if you were eating infrequently it would be a problem. But then again I'm no expert.
