Per the International Food Information Council (IFIC) recent annual survey, more than three quarters of respondents (77%) said they were trying to limit or avoid sugars.

Survey ranked limiting sugar intake as the No. 1 change they have made in their diet, ahead of eating more fruits and vegetables (No. 2), eating less carbohydrates (No. 3) and eating healthy protein sources (No. 4). 

When asked to rank the source of calories most likely to cause weight gain, sugar came out on top again.
