Avoid All High Fructose Corn Syrup

This Sparked Me!

For years, I tried everything imaginable to lose the weight, the problem was that my appetite was out of control. I felt there was something wrong with me as my appetite was 3x that of a normal person.

Once I stumbled across an article about high fructose corn syrup, I was shocked at what I read. Apparantly it shuts off your brains function that normally tells you that you're full. While hard to believe, once I stopped taking it, my appetite was about a third of what once was!

It will take about 2 weeks to see the difference. Make sure to check your labels very carefully as it is in everything from white bread to yogurt to soda. I even found it in a few wheat breads. One can of soda will put you over the safe limit. Do a google search on hfcs, it is very eye opening.
