Spring Clean: Yup, do some spring cleaning for your fridge this weekend. Princeton University just released a new study citing the significant impact high fructose corn syrup can have on weight gain and obesity symptoms (abdominal fat and high triglyceride levels). More backing for similar studies...and that much more impetus to check ingredient lists and clean up your fridge and pantry for fresher, less processed foods. Take a look at condiments, cookies, chips, juice, yogurt, frozen meals, canned soups, soda and a hell of a lot more (you'll likely be shockingly surprised). What's the easiest way to avoid HFCS? Start shopping smartly at places like Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, your local greenmarket where you won't find HFCS on labels or look for more natural or organic brands at your local grocery store.
