Excessive Sugar in Common Foods: Don't Fall for This Sweet but Deadly Trap!

If you regular visit my site, you probably know that I vigilantly warn against fructose, particularly high-fructose corn syrup. HFCS, a cheap sweetener derived from corn, is used in thousands of food products and beverages, most of which have kids as their main target.

But make no mistake about it – you are not safe from danger if you avoid fructose yet still consume sugar and its artificial counterparts.

I truly believe that consuming a high-sugar diet leads you down a path of food addiction, obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome, while increasing your risk for chronic diseases. So, if you’re doing your best to avoid all types of fructose and artificial sweeteners, then good for you – you’re taking the first step toward a truly healthy diet.  But what about the often-staggering amounts of other sugar forms in your everyday foods?

It’s time for you to discover the alarming facts about sugar in foods, and how the processed food industry is tricking you into consuming these unhealthy products.

How Do You Solve a Problem like Fructose?

Fructose per se is not necessarily toxic. If consumed in small amounts and with vital food factors (such as those found in organic, raw fruits), fructose may be useful to your body.

The problem is that people consume fructose in excessive amounts, which can then become toxic because your body cannot use it. The excessive sugar simply gets shuttled into your cells and stored as fat, leading to mitochondrial malfunction, obesity, and deadly, obesity-related diseases.

What’s more, fructose ends up taxing and damaging your liver in the same way alcohol and other toxins do.

Still, the corn syrup industry is insisting that high-fructose corn syrup is "natural," safe, and equal to table sugar – only because they are earning billions of dollars from it! They don’t want you to realize how truly damaging HFCS is, and how pervasive it is in your diet. Indeed, HFCS is found not only in soft drinks and juices, but also in salad dressings, condiments, and almost every processed food!

Get Started on a Healthy, Low-Sugar Diet

I find it troubling that the average American now consumes roughly 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup and 47 pounds of cane sugar every year. It’s no wonder a large portion of the population suffers from health conditions brought about by a high-sugar diet, such as:

  • Obesity and insulin resistance
  • Elevated triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Depleted levels of vitamins and minerals
  • Arthritis and gout
  • Liver disease and cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer

A Sweet Trap details the amounts of sugar in foods that you regularly consume. Discover just how much sugar lurks in processed foods, condiments, and even fruits that make up a large portion of your diet.

With this visual guide, you can avoid products with excessive amounts of sugar, and be able to stick to a low-sugar diet that will benefit you and your family.
