If this ingredient is one of the first items listed on the food packaging label then don’t eat that food! What ingredient you ask? High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). This ingredient is found in alot of sweet foods and sugary drinks.
High-fructose corn syrup is cheaper for food manufacturers than regular sugar (sucrose) so that’s why you see it so much on food labels. Sugary drinks, baked goods, frozen foods and even foods like ketchup are laced with this stuff. Nutritionists point to high-fructose corn syrup consumption as a major player in the nation’s obesity crisis (the fact that we eat it is the real problem).
Why is high-fructose corn syrup so deadly? Here it is: the body processes the fructose in high-fructose corn syrup differently than it does regular sugar. It also lowers the hormone leptin in your body. Leptin signals to your brain that you’re full. It also forces the liver to kick more fat out into the bloodstream (especially true with sugary drinks because they are processed so fast)! So, your body wants more and stores more fat at the same time.
Eat right, train right and take care of yourself!
