Dr. Graham one of the moderators here lives on a fruit based diet and is far from being overweight. You can ask him in the forums "Raw and Sports"
But even the study itself takes two sugars:
HFCS and Table sugar. Table sugar 50/50 fructose/glucose so to answer your question there is something else going on with HFCS that we aren't quite aware of yet. Although I think it is safe to assume that eating fruit will not cause someone to be obese. I can verift this personally and if you want you can try for yourself.
Maybe this article will shut Dr Mercola up on his anti-fruit rants....
I eat 10-15 apples some days, they're the bomb.
Man western society has such a hard on for protein.

The diff is HRC & cane sugar etc are PROCESSED sugar. The sugar from nature that is within fruit is naturally occurring, in it's whole form. Every bite of everything we eat...vegetables, grains, beans, pasta, anything--HAS to be turned to sugar by the body in order to be utilized. The beauty of fruit is that the work is already done, thus it becomes fuel for the body immediately & uses no body energy to digest.
Also, the #1 best source of vitamins & minerals is fruit. #2 best source is vegetables.
