Weight Loss Supplements And How They Make You Fat
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you have made the decision to lose weight and keep it off, chances are you have been exposed to a barrage of weight loss supplements over the course of your journey. While more quality information is becoming available, the weight loss industry is flexing its billion-dollar muscle as well (pardon the pun). What we have seen lately are several multi-platform campaigns that are trying to pass various ‘health’ foods and weight loss supplements as quality components of a healthy, effective and lasting weight loss program. Let’s address one of the most common ingredients in these supposed ‘beneficial’ foods: High Fructose Corn Syrup.

By now, a lot of us are aware that it is best to keep high fructose corn syrup out of your diet, but a new slew of advertisements are working to repair that image. Common claims about the food additive range from the (false) notion that it is all-natural, it is made from corn or that it is of similar or better nutritional value that typical table sugar.

It is without question that claims such as these mislead the vast majority of the public. All one has to do is look at the accelerated increase of obesity rates, diabetes and heart disease in the developed world to get an understanding of the current state of public health. There is an undeniable correlation between the occurrence of high fructose corn syrup and the increase of instances of obesity, diabetes and heart disease and this problem appears to only be getting worse as the dreadful food additive keeps popping up in more and more processed foods.

But what makes high fructose corn syrup so bad? The additive affects virtually all aspects of the way your body utilizes the energy you provide it. Let’s look at insulin to illustrate this point; your body uses insulin to regulate your blood sugar levels when they get too high. When insulin drives your blood sugar level down, it leaves you lethargic, hungry, and full of cravings. What do you think happens when you’re feeling lethargic, hungry and full of cravings? You EAT MORE! If you allow this sort of cycle to continue dramatic weight gain is inevitable, and high fructose corn syrup is one of several things that initiate this cycle.

If you want to succeed with weight loss, it’s best to forgo the vast majority of supplements, bars and shakes for as long as possible. Supplements should really only be used by people who are completely conscious for their own bodily processes and NOT by people who are looking to shed unwanted fat. Weight loss starts on a foundation of good habits and healthy food choices that satisfy both your body and mind. Nobody looking to lose weight will be satisfied psychologically with an 80g meal –give yourself time and learn the truth about real weight loss solutions!
