High Fructose Corn Syrup

Weight Loss: I love to talk about nutrition, diet, and exercise. When clients ask me which is more important, “the food I eat or how much exercise I do”, I say it’s the food you eat. Food has the power to either save your body or destroy it. One of the worst foods for us is High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Sodas, cereals, yogurts, and some 40,000 other manufactured foods taste sweeter because of HFCS.
We find HFCS in things like ketchup, pasta sauce, and crackers — it’s everywhere. I would love it if people could eliminate it completely from there diet, but I am realistic and I hope we can do our best to decrease it as much as possible. If HFCS is listed first or second on an ingredients list, see how many grams of “sugars” (HFCS is lumped in that category) the food product contains. If there’s just a gram or two, that’s okay. But if a food has 6 or more grams of sugars and HFCS is prominent on the list of ingredients, make another choice. To your health!
