Do you remember the big stink in the U.S. a few years back surrounding McDonald’s and their food, most notably French fries? It was the big trans-fat scare! That’s right, we were being poisoned by the evil clown with deadly fat and something had to be done!
Yeah, because we’re not adults or anything…
So the government stepped in and the burger giant was forced to change their frying oil. On the surface of it, it’s nice of good old Uncle Sam to take care of us right? To watch out for we, the ignorant masses, and make sure that when we’re shoving super-sized fries into our feed holes that they’re not entirely unhealthy!
Okay… but do you know that despite the choice you make to visit Mickey Dee’s, there is in fact something found in virtually every can, box or bag of food in the grocery aisle that’s incredibly addictive, almost immediately turns to fat when you eat it and is one of the leading causes of most of the ailments we suffer today?
That’s right, processed sugar in its many forms is one of the most used ingredients in all processed and packaged foods. That includes regular white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, maltodextrin and a host of others.
Want proof? Try this experiment the next time you go shopping. Walk down the aisles and examine the stuff you normally buy. Including stuff you wouldn’t even think they’d put sugar in – soup, salad dressing, instant potatoes, juice, frozen foods and even baby foods…
Now, if you read the list of ingredients you’ll find some of the sugars I mentioned above. Keep in mind that this list of ingredients is organized from the highest concentration to the lowest. So if some kind of sugar is listed in the first three ingredients – and it’s often #1 or # 2 – then you’re eating a whole lot of it.
Sugar is a killer and, while okay in small quantities, is extremely unhealthy, fattening and addictive. That’s right – thousands of independent clinical studies have shown that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and even heroine…
…and it’s in virtually everything we eat!
So is it any wonder why you might find it hard to drop the poundage?
Here’s something else to ponder before we say goodbye. There’s actually a list of vegetables that are routinely served in restaurants and found in the produce section of the grocery store that are generally thought to be healthy… but are actually very bad for you and inhibit your ability to drop weight!

If you’re looking to lose weight, have ever struggled with your weight or are just sick and tired of paying for the next big fitness craze, diet or gizmo that never seems to work, then I’d like to invite you to learn more about the foods you eat and the way your body works.
