That, who love sweets have less weight and lower body mass index (BMI) than those who limit themselves in sweets consumption, claim scientists from the Agricultural Center at Louisiana State University.
During the study, which lasted about five years, a team of experts led by Professor Carol O’Neill were watching 15 thousand girls aged 19 and older.
Women under experiment were divided into several groups based on the amount of daily consumption of sweets, sugar and other features of the diet. As a result, a group of scientists concluded that BMI and waist size in sweets lovers were slightly smaller than the others.
According to experts, obesity develops due to the fact that we consume more calories than spend, so they recommend getting from foods such as sweets, fast food and soda, no more than 10% of daily calories.
