Caption

Medical visualization of how fructose leads to weight gain. Fructose is a carbohydrate, but it is turned into fats by the liver. The more fructose you eat over time, the more fats the liver secretes. Foods that naturally contain fructose also contain glucose. When fructose and glucose travel together to the liver, the fructose prevents the glucose from being metabolized. The presence of unprocessed glucose then causes the pancreas to secrete more insulin. Chronic, long-term consumption of fructose and glucose keeps insulin levels constantly high eventually leading to insulin resistance.
