HFCS: I'm in practically everything. Soda, fruit juices, flavored yogurt, hot-dog buns, ketchup, mustard, English Muffins, ice cream, and the list goes on. I'm in anything that might be processed.
What to do - Cut Down on High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Read the ingredients list of your food. HCFS is in almost everything: soda, jam, ketchup, yogurt, ice cream, Twinkies. Check anything that has a sweetener.
- HCFS is in processed food, so if you see it in your food labels, be mindful that you eat processed foods. You won't be able to cut it out entirely, but start reducing it. Is soda a culprit? How much of it do you drink? Limit it to 4x a week, or less. Are English muffins a big part of your breakfast? Switch to whole wheat bread. Set some Mindful Goals - it's about getting better, not being perfect.
