As you know, I’m a big fan of eating natural foods and avoiding processed junk. So today I want to talk about some important information from Dr. Charles of Fat Loss Factor. On his website he goes into detail about the #1 food ingredient secretly making us fat.
I’ve chosen to share some info on this program because I’ve been getting a lot of messages from sisters who want a step by step plan that they can follow to lose the pounds.
What’s this dangerous ingredient? High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is a man made sweetener that is cheaper to produce and actually sweeter than sugar. During our November Challenge, Avoiding white sugar is one of our goals, so we definitely are avoiding HFCS.
Here’s what makes it so harmful: When HFCS is ingested, it travels straight to the liver which turns the tasty, sugary liquid into FAT. HFCS does not cause the pancreas to produce insulin. As a result, our bodies are “tricked” into a vicious cycle, eating food that gets immediately stored as fat and never feeling full. It is associated with blood sugar problems, ADD/ADHD, depression, fatigue, B vitamin deficiency, indigestion, tooth decay, and most importantly… WEIGHT GAIN.
So what’s the solution? Just avoid HFCS? Unfortunately it’s not that easy. You see, HFCS is added to so many foods that historically have not contained sugar, like peanut butter, bread, yogurt and juices. So it’s very difficult to avoid completely. Also, even if you eliminated HFCS from your diet, it wouldn’t repair the damage that has already been done. There’s another step you have to take first. This is exactly why Dr. Charles created his Fat Loss Factor program… to help your body repair the damage from toxins like HFCS… and lose a lot of weight in the process.
The video on his website will give you more details and has a lot of awesome free info about weight loss in it. The food industry is well aware that HFCS is a problem. But instead of eliminating HFCS, the corn lobby in Washington, DC has asked the FDA to change the name of HFCS to “corn sugar.” They think that just changing the name will fool us into thinking it’s healthier. So you can’t rely on the food industry to help you eat healthier foods and lose weight. You need to take action on your own. Fat Loss Factor is a great, flexible weight loss plan that is not strict or confining and there’s a money back guarantee. Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
Note: This program suggests the Master Cleanse (also known as the Lemonade cleanse) as part of their detox for rapid, extreme weight loss. I think that the master cleanse can be a good cleanse for the liver, but you could very well do a juice fast for 3 days as well. This is the only part of the program that I question.
