    One of my acquaintances has a well defined truly ripped body, but downs a tub of hagen daas one day a week "so he doesn't punch someone." I'd say he gets the best of both worlds, then... all the sugar and twice the fat...

    Forget what you know about fat...all myth. Fat is good...If you were a car, fat would be the gasoline. Processed carbs and processed sugar are the deadly duo that are an unnatural addition to out diet. The dealy duo is making US overweight and sick.

    What a treasure trove of information thus far... icon_lol.gif

    Meanwhile, it depends on both the type of sugar and the type of fat...both have relatively 'good' and 'bad' varieties...

    On the fat front, try to select monounsatured (think olive oil, avocado, nuts, etc...) and polyunsaturated (corn oil, soy oil, fish oils, etc...) over saturated (think animal fats, etc...) and trans fats (commercially packaged/fried foods, etc...). Of course, this is the most ridiculous of oversimplifications, as a healthy 'balance' is more relevant and often more beneficial than an all or none 'eat this and avoid that' mentality.

    On the sugar front, opt for stevia, xylitol, honey, and agave instead of processed/refined/substitute sugars. Yeah, we can argue the glycemic index on these (and the myriad research...as sugar research is pretty popular of late), but even if you opt for organic sugars you're going to be doing yourself more of a favor than if you opt for their 'created' cousins.

    All of this said, if you consume either fat or sugar (even if considered 'good') in excess, well, you'll see the excess translated to fat on you. So...the question comes back to your preference and consumption... I'd say supplement the outlined information I've provide here with a good bit of googling (as there's a hell of a lot of information out there and many more choices than I've mentioned) and your dietary preferences will help you answer your own question better than anyone else's opinion could. icon_wink.gif

    I'm under the impression that stevia is a naturally occurring sugar substitute, is it not?

    You forgot maple syrup.. mm, yum. It's great in cereal and oat meal. I always put chocolate chips in my oatmeal though.
