What's this dangerous ingredient?
High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is a man made sweetener that is cheaper to produce and actually sweeter than sugar.
Here's what makes it so harmful:
When HFCS is ingested, it travels straight to the liver which turns the tasty, sugary liquid into FAT.
HFCS does not cause the pancreas to produce insulin. As a result, our bodies are "tricked" into a vicious cycle, eating food that gets immediately stored as fat and never feeling full.
It is associated with blood sugar problems, ADD/ADHD, depression, fatigue, B vitamin deficiency, indigestion, tooth decay, and most importantly... WEIGHT GAIN.
So what's the solution? Just avoid HFCS?
Unfortunately it's not that easy.
You see, HFCS is added to so many foods that historically have not contained sugar, like peanut butter, bread, yogurt and juices.
So it's very difficult to avoid completely.
Also, even if you eliminated HFCS from your diet, it wouldn't repair the damage that has already been done. There's another step you have to take first.
This is why you need to help your body repair the damage from toxins like HFCS... and lose a lot of weight in the process.
The food industry is well aware that HFCS is a problem. But instead of eliminating HFCS, the corn lobby in Washington, DC has asked the FDA to change the name of HFCS to "corn sugar."
They think that just changing the name will fool us into thinking it's healthier.
So you can't rely on the food industry to help you eat healthier foods and lose weight. You need to take action on your own.
