How High Fructose Corn Syrup Makes you Gain Weight

New research from UT Southwestern Medical Center shows the amazing speed that our bodies make body fat from fructose. One of the reasons why low carb diets help you lose weight is that they reduce your intake of fructose.

“The message from this study is powerful because body fat synthesis was measured immediately after the sweet drinks were consumed,” Dr. Parks said. “The carbohydrates came into the body as sugars, the liver took the molecules apart like tinker toys, and put them back together to build fats. All this happened within four hours after the fructose drink. As a result, when the next meal was eaten, the lunch fat was more likely to be stored than burned.

TVNL Comment: For the past 20 years I have been saying that the soft drink industry is greatly responsible for the obviously abnormal rates of diabetes and obesity.  Too much sugar gets into the body too fast. What do you expect will happen when you consume soft drinks on a regular basis?
