Of course there's nothing wrong with high fructose corn syrup in moderation, but when it's literally in everything you eat & drink, how are you supposed to use it in moderation?! (These new pro high fructose corn syrup commercials really irritate me!)
It's in places you wouldn't even think of, in places there doesn't seem to be a good reason to be. For example, it's in yogurt, pancake syrup, bread, cereal, oatmeal, pasta sauce, juice & iced tea, frozen foods & fruit popcicles, ice cream, pies, cookies, cake, soups, jelly, peanut butter...
Your body converts it to sugar which turns into extra sugar (since there's also sugar in all of these items) which turns into extra calories which can turn into a difficult time managing weight!
Read the label on everything you buy and you'll be shocked!
Not only that, look at the sodium in what you're eating! All of the items I mentioned above are also loaded with sodium!
All natural, low fat and organic don't necessarily mean they're good for you! Sometimes these items have A LOT of sodium, more than they're regular counterparts!
Read your labels! Take a trip to the foodstore when you're not in a rush for time and look at the labels of every item you pick up.
Look for items without high fructose corn syrup (or corn syrup and things you can't pronounce!) and that are low in sodium (double digits or lower are preferred but up to 500mg's or so depending on the item) and look for fewer ingriedients overall! Less is better for you!
