OK so after watching this video that was very Eye Opening and Informative it is on HFCS and Sugar it is called Sugar: The Bitter Truth http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM I realized that everything I have been eating has it in there or at least a form of Corn Syrup.
SO what am I to do I cannot starve and I cannot throw out all the foods that we just bought because then we wouldn't have any food and we already used the food budget this month. So I have a huge dilemma, i know it is why I am fat and why my mom has Type 2 Diabetes I whole heatedly believe it. So then why will i continue to eat foods with it in it? Because it is in everything and the stuff that it isn't in is too expensive and ppl here will not eat it! Also how can I give up my Cereal in the AM that gives me 100% of my vitamins and minerals, my fiber and my Protein??? UGGG you see I am so confused now it is driving me nuts because I want to eat clean and rid my body of toxins and I cannot do that with all these foods with HFCS in them... Sad part is that when I lost the majority of my weight i was really watching what I was eating, cutting back on Processed foods, sugar, junk food and eating out and it was great. My family was supportive and they were all for eating better. But after a few months they decided to go back to eating the way they used to, leaving me and my hopes for a Healthier future in the dust. And here I am again wondering WTF I am going to do, because its not as easy for me now that they don't share my quest or views on food. Right now I am so confused its like really how am I ever going to get healthy if I can't do the things I want and buy the foods that my body needs and should be eating.. I know a little sugar in moderation isn't a bad thing, Ive cut out the soda and Fruit juice (aside from the Orange Juice) but now that HFCS is in all the Cereals I love, and are supposed to be good for you, spaghetti sauce, canned soups (which I don't eat much anyways) BREAD, Mustard. Mayo, Allot of different sauces, PEANUT BUTTER (broke my heart) and of course everything has Regular Sugar in it... If I had my own way I would eat everything the way nature intended it to be, raw or slightly steamed. I love whole grains but no one else does, the thing is, just because I buy the food for the house doesn't mean that i can buy what I want, I have to get what everyone will eat, and I cannot make myself separate food aside from my Couscous when they have noodles or rice....I'm ranting but that's what i seem to do allot and as of late This year has been SHIT and it just keeps getting WORSE!!!!
