Dear Sugar
Sugar, like other carbohydrates, does not actually have a high energy content, namely 4 cal or 17 kJ per gram. If you have 2 teaspoons of sugar a day this would equal 40 calor 170 kJ. Brown and white sugar have more or less the same energy content, so it would not matter which one you use. If the use of sugar helps you to stick to an energy-reduced, low-fat diet then you can use some in moderation without it causing problems. Just don't put sugar over every food and have more than 2 cups of coffee with sugar a day.
