Here are a few facts about HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), and why you should stay away from it:

– it is linked to obesity

– it releases the hormone, ghrelin, which tells us to keep eating

– once eaten it is metabolized quicky by the liver and turns into fat

– it is processed

– leads to higher LDL levels

You want to try and avoid HFCS products all together. You are better off grabbing a piece of fruit when you are hungry or a glass of water when you are thirsty. But most of all read any product label before you buy it. You will be surprised where you find HFCS.
