To me, a little refined sugar is fine. But it can be a trigger for over indulgence for many people. As you know carbohydrates are essential, and refined sugar can provide a nice energy boost - when used in moderation.

I don't know if you are old enough to remember but back in the 80's one of the cookie companies was advertising that a little cookie snack before a meal can help with portion control. Lots of people slammed the idea, but I gotta tell you as long as 1 cookie doesn't lead to a dozen cookies, it actually works.
