Natural Fructose (such as what is in fruit), get a bad reputation (if you will), because the average body handles this form of sugar differently as compared to other sugars (Complex as in Oatmeal, for example). It doesn't deserve it though. In addition, a person can be rather intelligent to use it at certain times, say a pre-workout drink, during a bulk (as an example).
In "general" terms, if it is not immediately utilized (and glycogen) is full, it does get "stored" for later use. Note that I quoted stored. What is not mentioned within this, is that the body stores, inserts, takes away, etc, fat, and other essentials for its use through out the common day. And, if a person is in a deficit (in the caloric sense, and pointing to a deficit calorie trend history and a person that is healthy and no issues), it will get removed (from being tucked away) and then used. Especially, if one is active, training, and providing a low-carb diet (not pointing to a ketogenic targeted diet). Its is more of the "totality" and circumference of the diet, that is most important.
Have a great day guys!
