Dangerous Side Effects of High Fructose Corn Syrup

High fructose corn syrup has seriously dangerous health effects.

High fructose corn syrup is stealing your health and making you gain weight!

The very first time I learned high fructose corn syrup was bad for you was while reading a book called The Abs Diet by David Zinczenko. In his chapter, “Your Weight Is Not Your Fault,” he covers how HFCS is leading to obesity in the lives of many people.

Before you begin to think that this post doesn’t apply to you because you don’t consume HFCS, let me ask you a few questions. Do you eat ketchup or barbecue sauce? What about Pop-Tarts? Do you enjoy soda? Well, guess what? All of those things are full of high fructose corn syrup. As a matter of fact, once you make the decision to remove HFCS from your home, you will be surprised at how many items have it!

Quitting High Fructose Corn Syrup

Once I learned that this substance is literally killing humans and destroying their bodies along the way, I decided to do something about it. My household will be high fructose corn syrup free! And it is, but it was no easy task to accomplish. I could not believe how many items had HFCS.

But don’t be discouraged! Many people believe that everything has HFCS and that you cannot avoid it, but that’s simply not true! You don’t even have to stop eating your favorite foods! All you have to do is create your own food at home compared to allowing a factory to create your foods for you.

Processed foods are the ones that contain high fructose corn syrup. It’s not a natural substance and was created by man. If you focus on eating natural foods that were created for us to eat, you won’t have to worry about avoiding this substance.

Bread and ketchup both contain high fructose corn syrup. However, there are some brands that do not. Read more

You may want to remove canola oil from your diet…

It’s a substance that can be found in almost every household as well as restaurants. It’s extremely affordable and was something my mother used on the regular. We certainly never even thought about using it or what the side effects were. I’m talking about canola oil.

We went through oil so fast in our household growing up. My mom used it for everything. She’s a great Puerto Rican cook. Therefore, we always had delicious rice and beans, chicken, bacalao, and much more. Oil was always a must while cooking.

However, I’ve since learned that Spanish food is not usually the best for you. But the one thing that I’ve entirely removed from my diet is canola oil. Let me tell you why. Read more

What are the health benefits of drinking coffee?

Who doesn’t love coffee? I know I do! However, there are some really great health benefits of coffee that you may not be aware of. That’s why I created this list to show you that drinking coffee can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle. Are you ready? Let’s dive in!

A Bunch of Antioxidants

Scientists have discovered more than 1,000 antioxidants in coffee. Also, it’s loaded with vitamins. It has:

  • Thiamine (Vitamin B1)
  • Riboflavin (Vitamin B2)
  • Niacin (Vitamin B3)
  • Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium

All these antioxidants combat inflammation which results in a lowered risk of developing a variety of diseases (including cancer). On top of that, they regulate insulin levels. Having a healthier amount of insulin leads to a lower amount of uric acid, which is the lead cause of gout. Coffee is a wonderful way to start your morning.

A truly wealthy person wins at life because of their winning mindset. The battle is all in the mind.

Mindsets of Wealthy People

In the blog post Habits Of Wealthy People, I covered several different routines of successful people that set them up to succeed.

It’s Possible

The wealthy mindset believes their dreams are possible to achieve. I’ve tried to help multiple people who simply believe, “I can’t do that.” But why not? The wealthy visually see it happening for them and know without any doubt it will be theirs.

There would be no actions without belief. The only reason why people continue to fight for their dreams is that they believe 100% it will be theirs. For example, people eat healthy and workout because they fully believe it will yield amazing results for their body. Therefore, they’re willing to endure the pain of today to receive the harvest of tomorrow. Read more

After You Create Your Pinterest Business Page

There are many things to do next. First, go to your settings and enter something in the ‘about you’ section. However, don’t just write anything. Use keywords. Tell people what your blog is about. For example, mine says “money saving tips, health & fitness, and bible study tools”. If someone typed ‘money saving tips’ into the search bar, there’s a chance my profile may pop up.

(Don’t forget to claim your website on Pinterest.)

Next, add a nice picture of yourself or your logo. This will promote more people to follow you.

What is your blog niche about? Create Pinterest boards around these subjects and begin to pin other bloggers’ pins to them. By beginning to pin content like your own, you’ll attract your target audience to follow your page. Once you start pinning your own creations, these people will be more likely to click onto your website. Read more

What is a domain authority?

Domain authority is how well you rank on common search engines, like Google. When you type something into Google’s search bar, it pulls up websites it believes will answer your search. High ranking websites will appear first. Low ranking websites usually get buried in the never ending pages of Google.

You certainly don’t want to remain a low ranking website if you plan on being successful in blogging.

How do I check what my domain authority is?

There’s a website that allows you to check what your current domain authority is. Here’s the link to it: (https://smallseotools.com/domain-authority-checker). Once you get there, copy and paste your homepage URL and click ‘Check Authority’. Read more
