If there’s one thing that Doctor Ridley can convince you of, it would be to STOP eating and drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)!  In this video, she references a study done by researchers at Princeton University. It confirms that rats gained weight eating High Fructose Corn Syrup 300% faster than rats fed fruit sugar.

HFCS is basically a fat switch!  Therefore, when you eat or drink foods that contain it, it triggers your body to gain weight.  Fructose might sound like a fun word, and some people think it has something to do with fruit.  However, it does not!  HFCS is from corn, and is way sweeter than the sugars found in real fruits.  Your liver digests HFCS, and people who consume it often develop fatty livers and an alcoholic’s belly.

Real Fruit vs. Corn

High Fructose Corn SyrupIf you’re looking for something sweet to eat, then choose REAL fruit instead of a soda or snack made with high fructose corn syrup.  Real fruit comes with all the vitamins and minerals to help you digest sugars the way they were intended.
