HFCS scares me.
My boyfriend and I, for several months, have been trying to eliminate both HFCS and MSG from our diets. Now, I can't say that we've been so
successful we've totally eliminated, because, what I find truly scary here is that it seems almost impossible - but we only rarely drink sodas (like,
one soda per month, if that), and we don't eat things like potato chips.
That, and if we have an option, we prefer to buy products that list ingredients that I can identify, and that aren't so bad for you.
Scary thing, I'm still overweight. But then, I've had that issue since I was a teenager, and I don't overeat. The odd thing is, in my late
teens/early adulthood, I was diagnosed with high triglicerides, and actually had to take measures and eat a certain way to bring them back down. And
I am wondering if that had anything to do with HFCS. I did drink a lot of soda back then.
