Fructose has different effect than glucose on brain regions that regulate appetite.

I wonder if it is a survival mechanism– animal tastes fruit, gets stimulated by fructose to eat more, fattens up while it can, survives winter.  Those that do NOT overeat while the fruit is ripe, perish in the subsequent winter.  Makes good sense to me….  Beware of High Fructose Corn Syrup!
