Surprise-Suprise High Fructose Corn Syrup Causes More Weight Gain


Don’t you hate those commercials for high fructose corn syrup. They remind me of a drug dealer giving a kid his first joint free. “Just take a little it won’t hurt you”. A pitiful attempt by the food companies to deceive you. A recent Princeton study reported in The Stone Hearth Newsletter again demonstrated that sugar and high fructose corn syrup are not the same. I don’t know why, but the proof keeps hitting us in the face. Look for high fructose corn syrup on the label. If it is ingredient one or two, skip the product. Amazingly it is the number two ingredient in ketchup. I now buy organic, HFCS free, ketchup.

    Just curious. Have you read The End of Overeating? Watched Food Inc.? It really is not that simple.

  2. Ok, think about this… If you eat processed cookies, cakes, chips… also drink sugared beverages filled with HFCS is it really the HFCS that caused you to gain weight or the fact you eat CRAP????

    Come on and get serious. If you replaced all of the HFCS today with plain sugar do you honestly think all of the people who eat these foods will wake up tomorrow and say, “hhhhmmmm… What the hell happened to my HFCS??? Guess I will bypass that doughnut this morning and eat an apple”. Anyone remember Susan Powter??? STOP THE INSANITY!!!!

    People eat crap… much of that crap is high calorie and sugarfilled, in this case HFCS. HFCS is the redheaded step child. People are overweight because of poor decisions in food choices and they simply don’t move enough to off-set the high calorie diet’s they consume.

    Here are some facts:
    – Back in the 70’s sucrose was replaced by HFCS because is was less expensive and corn was prevalent.
    – What is sucrose made of? Glucose and Fructose
    – What is HFCS made of? Glucose and Fructose
    – HFCS is no higher in fructose than regular sugar
    – If someone takes away fried food, dense sugar foods and beverages and replaced those with whole grains, fruits and veggies what do you think would happen??? Of course, that person would lose weight. Why? Well, in the HFCS argument it would be because you took away the HFCS. COME ON!!!! It’s because you are consuming less calories.

    Last point… for all of those anit-HFCS people that point to the rise in obesity in the USA as their “Golden Ring” that they point to as the, well explain that…

    Well, you explain this… There is an incredible rise of obesity in Latin America and guess what??? They don’t sweeten with HFCS they use sucrose.

    Just something to think about.
