Hey Anonymous! Fructose IS sugar. Boo yah!
Listen, I’m a realist. Logic rules my day, and here’s the logic on fructose.
Fructose is in fruits and vegetables. It’s not bad. Everyone is told to eat fruits and vegetables.
I assume you wrote this question to discuss high-fructose corn syrup? Anything in high doses is bad. Broccoli is good for you, but if you’re just pounding brocc all day long, I can assure you there are drawbacks.
The last thing to consider is, and this is the hammer, if you’re trying to get healthier and debating which sugar to eat, you’re shopping in the wrong aisle.
Want to get healthier? Eat half of your meals. Smaller meals, light snacks, and exercise.
