Female Speaker: Why is refined sugar bad for you? Tracee Yablon-Brenner: Refined sugar is bad for you because there's no fiber or protein working with the sugar. Your body is just getting a blast of sugar and it's very hard for your body to regulate that sugar. If you are having a piece of fruit, there's fiber with it which is able to balance the sugar in your body. Having just fruit juice or something that s high in sugar, you cannot balance that because it's just a blast of sugar and your body has nothing to balance it with.
