sugar does one of two things. It either displaces more nutritious foods in your diet, which means you’re screening out nutritious-dense foods, or it adds calories to your diet. So if you’re adding calories on top of an already nutritious diet that puts you at risk for weight gain. You are replacing foods that would be nutrient-dense with empty calories.
Weight gain has been associated with high risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Sugar, no matter, where it’s coming from, does tend to increase our triglycerides, or fat levels in the blood, and higher triglycerides increase your risk for heart disease.

There’s been a lot of research in recent years looking at the impact of added sugars — not the sugar naturally occurring in fruits and dairy products. What we know is that added sugars put you at a higher risk for a poor lipid (fats) profile: Higher triglycerides, lower HDL (the good cholesterol) and higher LDL levels (the bad cholesterol) in the blood. A poor lipid profile increases your risk for coronary heart disease.
Simple sugar is also correlated with tooth cavities, poor energy levels, and can lead to sugar cravings as the body never becomes fully satisfied from healthful foods.
Ramakanta Panda, one of India’s most experienced cardiac surgeons says:
“ Saying no to junk food and eliminating sugar and fattening substances from dietary intake is a must. ”
Hence it is important to get rid of sugar not only from your home cooked food and beverages but also from products available in the market.
