    Fructose increases food intake is because fructose metabolism requires an enzyme that depletes ATP, whereas, glucose increases ATP, and therefore decreases food intake.

    This according to a great new study from researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

    They also noted that the rise in consumption of high-fructose corn syrup and sweeteners parallels the rise in the obesity epidemic
