“researchers from the University of Florida suggests that a diet high in fructose may lead the body to develop a resistance to a protein called leptin, which helps control appetite.”
Your body recognizes aspartame as formaldehyde.
After learning these two things, and growing to want to avoid putting processed food in my body, I went grocery shopping earlier this week and tried really hard to avoid high fructose corn syrup and aspartame. Aspartame wasn’t so difficult to avoid, but high fructose corn syrup!! Holy cow! It’s almost impossible. Even if it doesn’t have HFCS, it has hydrogenated oil or chemically altered corn flour. We did pretty well, but I’d like to do better. I’m also trying to go organic, but it seems impossible without breaking the bank. Where can I buy organic food that won’t empty my wallets?
