HFCS is a manmade sugar, derived predominantly from genetically modified corn.  The sweet concoction has shown to promote binges and increases blood sugar levels, PROMOTING FAT STORAGE. 

The introduction of HFCS into our food supply directly paralleled a 47% spike in type 2 diabetes cases as well as 80% increase in obesity for mainstream products, including the following.  Sauces (including ketchup) yogart, energy bars, soft drinks, fruit juices, processed bake goods, cereals crackers, ice cream, salads dressings, most packaged snack foods.


Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats have undergone such extensive processing that the chemicals structure has changed from a “cis” shape which the human body recognizes and utilizes, to trans shape, which is foreign and destructive to human physiology.

Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that was denied 8 times by the FDA before being approved in 1973.  Many scientist objected the approval claiming that aspartame hadn’t been safe for use as a food additive.  MIT neuroscientist, Richard Wurtman researched the effects of aspartame and concluded that it promotes cravings for food high in calories and carbohydrates.  Not good for weight loss or reaching your fitness goals. 

Though aspartame is calorie free it still causes insulin to be released, which job is to stow away sugar – when this sugar is not available, the result often hypoglycemia and sever hunger.



White sugar comes from the juice of a sugar cane plant that has undergone an extensive refining process.  In the process all of the enzymes, fiber vitamins and minerals are destroyed rendering a nutritional void.   White sugar is also extremely high in calories, which your body loves to store away in fat cells.  This means increase belly fat and weight gain. 

Refined sugar has been linked to a weakened immune system, hyperactivity, ADD, mental emotional disorders, dental cavities, hypoglycemia, enlargement of the liver and kidneys, and an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain.  All that leads to weight gain!!  



White flour comes from natural wheat that has been stripped of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.  This results in a nutritionally void product that is packed with calories that release quickly in to your system, creating a spike in blood sugar.  As you know, this promotes fat storage and leads to hysterical hunger and cravings.   You don’t need that!!
