I was reading this article about soda and obesity and it got me thinking. In the article they skimmed over a study where they tested the effects of sugary drinks on your body. Once they added the sugar it wrecked their blood and raised their ldl cholesterol.
It should be obvious to most of the people here that soda ain't that good for you.
But how does that compare to the sugar found in natural fruits? If you eat equal amounts of sugar from fruits would it still throw your system out of wack like the sodas did? Or do all the vitamins and anti-oxidants completely make up for that?
Common sense tells me to eat all the fruit you want. But I get confused by the people on strict diets who also cut out all fruit.
I don't understand why, is it just because of the carbs?
