Do you find yourself always raiding the refrigerator soon after you finish a meal? If you say yes, then the problem might be related to high-fructose corn syrup in the products you consume. Unlike other sugars, high-fructose corn syrup, which is found in soft drinks, baked goods, cereals and salad dressings, interferes with how your body regulates your appetite.
Regular cane sugar releases leptin, a protein that turns off hunger pains whereas high-fructose corn syrup can do the opposite.
The best protection is to check product labels. If high-fructose corn syrup is one of the first five ingredients, leave it on that store shelf! Your body will thank you.
