Eat your nutrition, don’t drink it

Impact of dietary sucrose on adiposity and glucose homeostasis in C57BL/6J mice depends on mode of ingestion: liquid or solid – ScienceDirect

• Liquid sucrose intake was associated with increased energy consumption and greater body fat gain.

• The same level of sucrose in a solid diet did not lead to higher energy intake or elevated body weight and fatness.

• Elevated adiposity was correlated with impairment of glucose homeostasis and insulin resistance.

• Glucose homeostasis and insulin resistance were related to adiposity and the mode but not the level of sucrose intake.

The present work strongly supports the suggestion that sugar-sweetened beverages may be important drivers of adiposity and thereby impaired metabolic health.
