Video – An interview with Dom D’Agostino on fructose and why soft drinks cause obesity, weight gain, craving and low energy.


Traditional soft drinks, juice boxes, and energy and sports drinks are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, an ingredient also found in many processed foods. The body processes fructose differently than other sugars, and fructose can lead to weight gain by encouraging the body to store energy. Dr. Richard Johnson and Dr. Dominic D’Agostino discuss the issues with fructose, how fructose can drive food cravings and overeating, how fructose might be an Alzheimer’s contributor, and the potential benefits of a different sugar that might promote the release of GLP-1, the hormone that Ozempic and Wegovy help increase.
