I was just reading In Defense of Food, and where it talked about sugars and metabolic adaption, it briefly mentioned fructose being metabolized differently from glucose. And then I found this article online: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/07/24/does-fructose-make-you-fatter/

It does seem to lend some credibility to clean eating, especially when eating in caloric excess. Does anyone else agree?

"Six healthy subjects [4 men and 2 women; aged (mean +/- SD) 28 +/- 8 y; BMI, 24.3 +/- 2.8 kg/m(2); and serum triacylglycerols (TG), 1.03 +/- 0.32 mmol/L] consumed carbohydrate boluses of sugars (85 g each) in a random and blinded order, followed by a standardized lunch 4 h later."

Ir-f*cking-relevant unless your idea of refreshment is 2 cans of Coke.

Well, a 20oz bottle of coke does have 65g of sugar, and with some protein bars having 20-30g of sugar, 85 doesn't seem like an unrealistic number.

I eat clean for the most part regardless so I rarely have sugar approaching that level in one meal/snack.

I meant in combination with a 12oz or 20oz soda.

I'm gonna go get laid, then I'll check on this thread later.
