Are you trying to cut calories, burn fat and lose weight? One quick way to cut calories and shrink your belly fat is to give up foods that have high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as an ingredient. High-fructose corn syrup is found in more products than you might imagine.
If HFCS is one of the first items listed on the food label, don't eat that food!
Whoever came up with HFCS in the 1980s pretty much made a "deal with the devil." It is cheaper for food manufacturers than regular sugar (sucrose) so that's why you see it so much on food labels. Sugary drinks, baked goods, frozen foods and even foods like ketchup are laced with this stuff. Nutritionists point to HFCS consumption as a major player in the nation's obesity crisis. The fact that we eat HFCS is the real problem!
Why is HFCS so deadly? Here it is: the body processes the fructose in HFCS differently than it does regular sugar. It also lowers the hormone leptin in your body. Leptin signals to your brain that you're full. It also forces the liver to kick more fat out into the bloodstream (especially true with sugary drinks because they are processed so fast)! So, your body wants more and stores more fat at the same time.
