Its rather a long vid long but it explains how sugar consumption contributes to body fat levels.
I've posted the link because it may be of interest to MN members who are looking to drop bodyfat

That's really interesting. The amount of sugar in our diets is insane.

it hard to avoid...high fructose corn syrup seems to be the real demon though

Thank you for posting, it was a brilliant and very well defined lecture :-)

I didn't watch but after trying low fat / low calorie diets in the past this time I went low sugar - did eat natural sugars like whole fruit, dairy, etc etc but cut out processed sugars and cut down carbs.

And I am maintaining a weight a stone lighter than my previous lightest ever adult weight, with 18% body fat. I do cheat now that I am maintaining rather than losing but my sugar and carb intake is much lower than it was.

bloke in the vid is a little 'evangelical' (I think) but even so I wasnt aware of the extent to which fructose is metabolised differently to other carbs.

This blog post summarises so of the vid:
