Remember the big trans-fat scare of a few years back? You know, how McDonald’s was actively trying to poison us all with their anti-life French fries?
“There’s trans-fat in those delicious fries! My God! Won’t somebody think of the children?”
And yet nobody knew what the hell a trans-fat was.
As if Mickey Dee’s would intentionally try and kill off its customers, right?
Yes, but fast food is not healthy and kids and adults are getting fat because they eat it 12 times a week!
The last time I checked, Ronald McDonald doesn’t come around to your house with a gun and force you to gnaw on fries and milkshakes. Pretty sure we have to go to the joint and ask for this stuff.
But we’re all stupid and irresponsible children and it’s up to our good old Uncle Sam to protect us from ourselves…
Oh yeah? Then how come there’s a literal addictive poison in almost everything in the grocery store that comes in a package – something more addictive than cocaine, something that rapidly becomes a fat deposit and is the direct cause of diabetes?
How come our Uncle doesn’t protect us from that?
Sugar is coming for you!
Yeah, you guessed it. Sugar is the leading cause of weight gain and a variety of diseases common to modern life. It’s very bad for you and it’s in everything.
So it’s okay to go after French fries but not big sugar? It’s okay to let them pump a wide variety of this poison into our cans, bags, boxes and bottles?
When I was a little kid back in the 1970’s, I can remember that overweight people were fairly rare. Nowadays, though, most of us are overweight and outright obesity is on the rapid rise. I used to wonder about this until I started studying sugar.
If you want to check my facts on this, here’s a very easy way to do it. The next time you’re at the store, pick up a bottle of salad dressing, a bag of instant potatoes, something from the frozen section, a bottle of juice or even a can of tomato soup.
Look at the list of ingredients and see if any of the following appear near the top of the list:
- Brown sugar
- Corn syrup
- Malto dextrin
All of these, and some more too, are sugars. Now here’s the kicker – ingredients are listed from the highest concentration to the lowest. So that means that if any type of sugar is in the top 3 positions, it’s in that product in huge amounts.
Cutting down on your sugar intake is going to go a long way to helping you control your weight. It’s the beginning of the process, and you’d be very surprised at how easy it is to lose weight simply by eating in harmony with your own body.
Believe it or not, you can actually drop as much as a pound every 72 hours without running, pumping iron, starving yourself or eating anything weird!
