“Fructose” is a natural sugar found in fruit.
It’s much better than high fructose corn syrup (the stuff found in processed foods). But fructose is still sugar. Eat too much, and you can get yourself into a world of trouble.
When you eat fruits, your body processes the fructose in them quickly. This spikes your blood sugar levels, and your body releases a hormone called insulin to get things under control.
Do this repeatedly, and your body adapts by becoming RESISTANT to insulin!
Things only go downhill from there. Insulin resistance has been linked to obesity—the last thing you want to hear if you’re trying to lose weight. It’s also been linked to diabetes, kidney disease, and even heart disease.
