Being I'm not a "healthy young male" my blood sugar would skyrocket with the sugared drink but not the others, so for me that's important. Also shows the body's not stupid; it's highly regulated and somehow senses/knows how much energy it's getting and consumes the amount it needs, at least in metabolically healthy young men. My mom said she could fool herself when she wanted to lose weight by filling up on a big energy-sparse salad. I could never do that because something inside me would somehow sense how much energy value I'd consumed and a little while after all those bulky veggies were processed give me the message, "That wasn't food! Now send me some real food to eat!" Like protein and fats.
