This is no more surprising than to see studies funded by drug companies to present positive results.  However since obesity and diabetes are very multi-factorial, associations are very different from causations.  In Australia, sugar consumption has significantly decreased at the same time that obesity has skyrocketed. Looking for simple dietary solutions is usually good for a quick best-selling diet book, but rarely has significant impact.  The bottom line is the best way to reduce excess body fat is calorie restriction.  To make that fat loss permanent, you have to make sure that such restriction can be maintained without hunger or fatigue.
