Fructose and losing bodyfat

Dear Peter:

Cliff Sheat writes in hos book "Lean Bodies - The Revolutionary New Approach top Losing Bodyfat by Increasing Calories" (Warner Books), page 44:

"A little known fact is that vertain fruits and fruit juices can be culprits in promoting bodyfat -- even though they are highly nutritious, full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber."
He then continues by stating: "Molecularly, fructose is put together differently from glucose and, consequently, your body uses it differently. After being absorbed into the bloodstream, fructose goes directly to the liver wehre is is metabolized into tryglycerides, a fat. In fact, research has shown that fructose elevates triglycerides levels in the blood in susceptible individuals."

Question: (1) Is Sheat's assertion valid? (2) If so, is there a blood type that is more susceptible than others to fructose's conversion into triglycerides?

I am Type O and 50 years old. I've been on your diet now for 2 weeks and very much wish to lose bodyfat.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
