From the plant's perspective, the fructose is there to attract creatures to eat it and thereby spread and fertilize the seeds. So fructose definitely has a purpose to the plant. Perhaps at first, the addition of fructose by the plant made a nice... (more)

I'm not sure what you are wanting to hack.  Normal blood sugar after a meal is 70-200 1 hour after, and 70-140 2 hours after.  If you don't eat your blood sugar is maintained by glucagon and insulin. You only have a spike of cortisol if you become... (more)
