How Many Grams Of Sugar Turns Into 1 Gram Of Fat In The Body

How many grams of sugar equal a gram of fat in the body?

Answer

There is not a clear cut answer to this question. Your activity level affects whether or not carbohydrates (sugar) are used for energy or stored as fat. That being said, there are 3500 calories per pound. 1 gram of sugar equals 4 calories. It would take 875 grams of sugar to equal 1 pound.
