Confirmed—Fructose Can Increase Your Hunger and Lead to Overeating

Eating Too Much

Story at-a-glance -

  • Scientists using fMRI tests have shown that fructose triggers changes in your brain that may lead to overeating and weight gain. When you drink a beverage containing fructose, your brain does not register the feeling of being full, as it does when you consume simple glucose
  • Fructose is also metabolized to fat in your body far more rapidly than any other sugar, and the metabolism of fructose by your liver creates a long list of waste products and toxins, including a large amount of uric acid, which drives up blood pressure and can cause gout
  • As a standard recommendation, I advise keeping your total fructose consumption below 25 grams per day. For most people it would also be wise to limit your fructose from fruit to 15 grams or less
  • According to a recent study, altering your typical eating habits―such as getting up in the middle of the night for a snack―causes a certain protein to desynchronize your internal food clock, which can have a detrimental effect on your health and well-being
