    re: sugars

    All sugars ultimately convert to glucose in the bloodstream. Fruit sugars (fructose) do take a little longer than table sugar sucrose (which is a disaccharide of 2 glucoses) It is the speed with which a meal turns into blood glucose that spikes the blood sugar (with the associated rise of insulin to follow!)

    Anyway, +1 on the HCFS and simple sugars...they increase my hunger like crazy.
    My response was "Yawn" to an article that the OP had asked for an opinion regarding, not to the OP himself. I believe the OP, and indeed most posters, understood that point. Were I to post a link to an article, even one of my own, and someone replied "Yawn. Nothing new here.", I wouldn't assume the reply was ad hom.

    Back to the article. Yawn. Fumento covered the fat calories vs carb calories back in 1997.

    Galactose has it's own pathway and does not have to be converted to glucose.

    Sucrose is glucose-fructose.

    This is a cycling forum. Note that if you are riding hard, you are burning carbs faster than they can be transfered into the blood stream= no sugar spikes.
