I have been doing heaps of research on what is healthy for our bodies and have come to the conclusion that fructose (other than when contained and eaten in a whole piece of fruit, occassionally) and sugar in its many sneaky forms, are basically bad for us and doing us harm. At the very least, they are what big business is using to keep us addicted to and buying more processed foods. Until I started closely looking, I didn't realise how much sugar is added to most things we eat. I even found that a plain, frozen turkey hind quarter, had sugar added to it. WHY? The only reason could possibly be that they want us to buy more, so the food companies feed our sugar addiction. Fructose stuffs up our bodies switches, so that we feel that we need to eat more and more, even though we have eaten plenty already. One of the main reasons we are all becoming obese and over weight. The government would like to put the blame back onto us, by saying that we are too lazy and don't move and exercise enough. But that is total rubbish. You don't need to eat less or move more to loose weight. I am living proof of that. Since giving up fructose a year ago, I have lost 20 kilos. I eat plenty. I just eat smarter - no fructose, except for the occasional raw honey (and it needs to be raw honey, so it still contains all its goodness) and the occasional piece of fruit or frozen berries. I eat lots of good fats - animal and coconut oil and butter - which helps to satisfy you longer and give you long acting energy, as well as making your food taste amazing. BUT as I am a wheelchair user, I spend most of my day sitting on my butt. There is tons of information on the net. Get hold of all David Gillespie's books - Sweet Poison; The Sweet Poison Quit Plan, and cookbook; and his books Toxic Oil; Big Fat Lies, which go into why we shouldn't be ever consuming Margarine, and all the seed oils eg. canola, vegetable oil, etc. And we shouldn't be using olive oil to cook with, as it is not heat stable. Coconut oil is a far better choice. David's books are a good start to your research. Good luck! It is time we stopped believing that the Heart Foundation and the Government - have our best interests at heart. They are both ruled by the almighty dollar. Follow their guidelines and your health will suffer for it.
