Notice reading about High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
if it has 8 or more grams of HFCS don't use it. www.menshealth.com/cda/article.do?site=Men
Trans Fat--- Turns fat in foods into fat on your belly.
Today, you can find HFCS in things like ketchup, pasta sauce, and crackers -- it's everywhere. Now, you don't need to eliminate it completely (though that's the ideal) 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 8 or more grams of sugars and HFCS is prominent on the list of ingredients, ditch that grub
Scan the label and eliminate. Like hotel bars on business trips, little good can come from them. Some tips for total avoidance:
• Check ingredients lists for aliases like "hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated." The higher these ingredients are on the label, the more trans fats they contain.
• Pick high-protein breakfasts like eggs and Canadian bacon over waffles. If you have toast, skip the margarine. Processed bread products and margarine are two of the most common forms in which trans fats find their way into our bodies.
• At a restaurant, ask what kind of oil the chef uses. You want to hear olive oil, not shortening.
• When eating out, stick to soup or salad and avoid the bread, which can be filled with trans fats.
Since saturated fats are usually found in meats and dairy products, you should always choose the leaner forms of protein and the low-fat forms of dairy.
Choose whole grains and whole wheat products over any made with white flour or refined carbohydrates.
