How many times have you found yourself craving for cookies, burgers, or even a whole box of pizza just after eating? Don’t worry. You’re not the only one, and scientists have found out why. According to a study featured on Prevention.com, the answer lies in the kind of sugar you’ve been consuming. If you’ve been taking in too much fructose (fruit sugar), you’re more likely to be tempted by high-calorie foods like the ones mentioned above. Glucose (carb sugar) is less likely to trigger cravings.


So does this mean that you have to start avoiding fructose now? Not exactly. According to Lori Chong, RD at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, it's "more relevant and simple" to cut back on your total sugar intake.
