Are you still hungry after you eat a full meal?

Researchers say it could be that fructose in your drink.

A new study suggests that fructose, a sugar that saturates the American diet, may play a role in overeating.

According to researchers, after drinking a fructose beverage, the brain doesn’t register the feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed.

They also say the study does not prove that it causes obesity.
