Although previous studies have shown that being leptin resistant can lead to rapid weight gain on a high-fat, high-calorie diet, this is the first study to show that leptin resistance can develop as a result of high fructose consumption.

The study also showed for the first time that leptin resistance can develop silently, that is, with little indication that it is happening.
