  1. I would add tht “starchy” foods are simply long chains of glucose molecules i.e. sugar. On fructose, see my previous post titled “the Absolute Final Word On Fructose” or something like that. Points out that standard physiology and nutrition texts state that almost 100% of absorbed fructose is converted to glucose on the first pass through the liver. So hysteria over high fructoe corn syrup and such is really nonsensical.
