I seriously have a man crush (or a company crush?) on Google…they literally have everything down to a precise science. Search, mail, advertising, the #1 mobile operating platform (Android), maps–you name it, they do it well. The one thing I would NEVER expect from Google? Diet and nutrition. Google uses science and psychology to infuse a little nutritional acumen into the workplace. $72 million in free employee food isn’t too bad either! The infographic from BizMedia highlights a few of Google’s tactics. Really interesting stuff!   Tweet Follow Lean It UP on Twitter for real-time fitness/nutrition tips, advice, info, and updates. Follow...

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. The HFCS Story: There are many different types of sugar, a few include: lactose, which is found in dairy products; fructose, which is found in fruits; and glucose, which is a product of carbohydrate breakdown. These sugars are not chemically identical and have much different effects on the body’s blood sugar levels. Most fruits have a relatively low glycemic index value (low glycemic index foods raise blood sugar levels at a slower rate). Even though they’re high in sugar,...
