High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is nasty…cut it out. Although the rise in obesity can’t solely be attributed to increased high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) consumption, there’s no doubt that HFCS has been one of the major factors. You can find the full story explaining how insulin, carbs, and HFCS impact weight loss here, but I’ll quickly recap why HFCS is so bad for the body.

Yum…Taco Bell Meat Contains Only 35% Beef, 57% Fat

Posted by on Apr 10, 2012 in Diet It UP, Eating Out, News

Honestly, it was pretty obvious that Taco Bell wasn’t serving high quality beef in it’s products. Lets be serious…it’s Taco Bell. What’s actually surprising though is that Taco Bell’s “seasoned beef” is not only fatty as hell, but it’s barely beef at all.

Cough Drops Could Be Making You Fat
