Yes - fructose in a fresh, in-season piece of fruit is different to fructose in juices and is definitely different from High-Fructose-Corn-Syrup. But, I recommend keeping fruit intake down to one piece per day. Dr. Mercola recommends keeping fructose intake under 15grams per day as an absolute maximum. (1 medium banana on average would have around 7-8g of fructose.)

Sugar without the fiber and bulk is far more detrimental to the body, hits your liver, and it turns on the fat storing process, leading directly to fat gain. When you drink sugar it skips the part of the brain that tells it calories have been consumed, so you stay hungry - and crave more sugar.

When you're dehydrated your body gets depleted of necessary minerals and nutrients and your body will start to crave anything and everything to replenish them. Aim for 2-4 liters per day. Try swapping your coffee or black tea for herbal tea. Try lemon or cucumber infused water!

Do it everyday - even if it's just 10 minutes. After exercise there is a dramatic reduction in insulin levels and raised insulin levels are big contributor to sugar and carb cravings.

Depriving yourself of sleep leads to a rise in hunger hormones, a decrease in appetite-suppressing hormones and big cravings for sugar and refined carbs.

Not having a solid breakfast instantly puts you in a blood sugar catastrophe. Sugar cravings are way more in control and easy to avoid if you don't let your blood sugar spike and then dip too low. Having an alkaline breakfast containing fats and protein is a great idea :)
