It depends : Even natural sugars have calories and can lead to weight gain if consumed in excess. However, our bodies process natural sugars better than refined ones. You are better off getting your sugars from natural products like fruits and honey because of the other nutrients they contain. As long as you are not diabetic your body should handle the sugars without difficulty.
