    How is fructose stored as fat?

    I was wandering seeing as fructose doesn't raise insulin, yet I've read that it stores fat at a quicker rate than the other sugars.

    Eat whole foods - including fruits and berries. Avoid refined products, include fructose syrups.

    Do NOT worry about the fructose contained in whole foods any more than you would worry about carbs in general.

    Fructose (like glucose) can be converted into fat.

    Is Kresser seriously saying fructose is a great idea?

    Back to the basics; we come from the ice age, that's not a high fructose environment. How could we possibly be adapted for large amounts?

    Strawman! Ice age or not, eating some fruit is hardly a high fructose environment anyway. Also, maybe it was warm before the ice age and humans ate fruit as a part of their diet at that time? Maybe humans lived in tropical environment before going north? And why does humans same as fruit eaters have color vision and carnivores not? Yeah, maybe the human specie had a life before hunting Mammoths over the frozen tundra…

    Lol. I love this post. I have always hated the premise of low carb eating with the ice age argument.

    No doubt Grok's ancestors came to be in tropical environments. And our closely genetic relatives, Apes and Chimpanzees eat primarily fruit. I have NO DOUBT that we are well adapted to eating fruits and berries. Do not fear fructose in it's natural forms.
