Processed Fructose Is the Number One Driver of Obesity and Diabetes

• Recent research confirms that all calories are not equal. Added sugars, and processed fructose, are significantly more harmful than other carbohydrates
• Fructose worsens insulin levels and reduces glucose tolerance, which is a driver for pre-diabetes. It also causes harmful fat storage and promotes markers for poor health, such as inflammation and hypertension
• Once you reach 18 percent of daily calories from sugar, there’s a two-fold increase in metabolic harm that promote prediabetes and diabetes, so current dietary guidelines are a recipe for chronic disease
