Recent research confirms that all calories are not equal. Added sugars, and processed fructose, are significantly more harmful than other carbohydrates. Fructose worsens insulin levels and reduces glucose tolerance, which is a driver for pre-diabetes. It also causes harmful fat storage and promotes markers for poor health, such as inflammation and hypertension. Once you reach 18 percent of daily calories from sugar, there’s a two-fold increase in metabolic harm that promote prediabetes and diabetes, so current dietary guidelines are a recipe for chronic disease.
