Friday Funny: Sugar is Killing Us (or maybe not so funny?)

It’s no secret, I’ve been trying to cut sugar (particularly fructose) out of my and my families diets. It’s a challenge! Sugar, or more specifically high fructose corn syrup is in most everything you buy packaged at the store. You think you’re eating a healthy diet including foods like yogurt, marinara sauce, salad dressing, and deli turkey…then you check the label. High fructose corn syrup in every one!

This is one of the reasons we’ve been trying to focus on a whole foods diet: meat, vegetables, and a little bit of fruit (not so much for mamma though, she doesn’t need the insulin spike from the fructose in fruit). This video illustrates some of these points in a fairly comical way. Have a great weekend!
