weight loss and calorie intake

On my first round of treatment I lost a lot of weight.  I remember my doctors mentioning some time of calorie supplement.  Whenever I search on something like this I find vitamin information.  Has anyone else taken a calorie supplement? What kind or brand?

There is significant evidence that high sucrose diets may alter intracellular metabolism, which in turn facilitates accelerated aging through oxidative damage. Scientists found that the rats given fructose had more undesirable cross-linking changes in the collagen of their skin than in the other groups. These changes are also thought to be markers for aging. The scientists say that it is the fructose molecule in the sucrose, not the glucose, that plays the larger part.20

Because it is metabolized by the liver, fructose does not cause the pancreas to release insulin the way it normally does. Fructose converts to fat more than any other sugar. This may be one of the reasons Americans continue to get fatter. Fructose raises serum triglycerides significantly. As a left-handed sugar, fructose digestion is very low. For complete internal conversion of fructose into glucose and acetates, it must rob ATP energy stores from the liver.21

I'm a little unclear...are you referring to the fructose contained in corn syrup/sugar or the fructose contained in things such as fruits?

Do you know we are the only country in the world to put High Fructose Corn Syrup in our foods??  It started during WW 2 when sugar was hard to get.
