Insulin regulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism.
The point was that hyperinsulinemia, high levels of insulin in the blood, will essentially lock fat in adipocytes....

Well, the abstract is availible for free and it seems to cover the important stuff:
You can find countless abstracts and quite a few full text articles on PubMed. Other useful resources are Google Scholar, PLoS One, and DOAJ.

Well, fructose is shuttled straight to the liver and is metabolized.
...The food industry have also been adding fructose in the form of corn syrup (popular in the United States) or sucrose (this is half fructose) to foods, especially low fat/diet foods to improve flavour. There is emerging evidence that this may be making the obesity epidemic even worse, starting with damage to our liver cells, the hepatocytes.
The only organ in your body that can take up fructose is your liver and this is where the problem begins....
Fructose increases fat production in the liver (also known as denovo lipogenesis) which in turn increases blood fats like cholesterol and triglycerides (glucose does not do this) and liver fat (which could result in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). In fact fructose is being metabolised via the same pathway as alcohol and is actually damaging your liver in the the same way as alcohol. Fructose causes deposition of fat within the liver so it is actually like alcohol and alcohol is like a fat. So in contrast to glucose, it can be said that fructose behaves like a fat
Fructose has been shown to decrease insulin sensitivity; this can be related to increased triglyceride formation and circulation in the blood, according to Dana Flavin, MD. with Life Extension Magazine. Increased triglyceride level is a risk factor associated with metabolic syndrome, which is characterized by increased circulating insulin, high triglycerides and cholesterol levels, increased abdominal fat and high blood pressure. www.livestrong.com...
