Nothing will help your body become healthier more quickly than getting man made fructose out of your system. Fructose is the root cause of Obesity, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, and Diabetes Type 2. All these conditions are the result of Insulin Resistance and Inflammation that comes about because of the way our liver has to metabolize fructose.
Once the cause of the problem is removed, the body’s ability to heal is amazing, and liver enzymes often begin normalizing within two weeks.
The best way to eliminate Fructose is to start reading the food labels. If the label on the “food” item you are considering has “Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Cane Syrup, Dehydrated Cane Juice, or Beet Sugar as one of the first five ingredients, do your body a favor, don’t buy it, and find one that doesn’t.
This is a label from an organic, supposedly healthy, Granola product. “Evaporated Cane Juice” is Sucrose which is 50% Glucose and 50% Fructose. What Oat Syrup Solids are is any ones guess. I looked all over Google and cannot find anything definitive. The Cane Juice is enough to disqualify the product, especially since it is the #2 ingredient.
At this point we don’t even consider any fructose not in a natural container (Fruit) as not even a food item. It is a cheap, harmful, and addictive man-made compound.
One of our daughters now calls her home a “fructose-free zone.” I called after the first week to find out how things were going and she said she had taken a bunch of Excedrin during the week. I asked why and she laughed, Squinting so much reading the labels gave me a headache.”
She went on, saying, “Dad, that stuff is in everything. I did not realize how much sugar we were eating. I’ll bet our sugar consumption has been cut by about 90%.” And she had lost 3 pounds.
Since the majority of the damage done by fructose is from Insulin Resistance, the next step is to get information about vitamins and minerals that have been shown to help Restore Insulin Sensitivity.
