Corn syrup! Hook them while they are young! Ironically, the generic Walgreens brand is one of the few without corn syrup

I noticed that too after I went back to work and couldn't bf anymore I bought Walgreens generic. There's another brand I ordered online although I'll have to look through some things I can't remember off the top of my head.

Because folks are wising up about sugar.....it's a good idea to read labels AGAIN...even if you have read them before.

I have found changes in sugar quantities with generic foods that are lower than name brands....

Watch out for those "health" bars.....they are one of the worst items. yesterday I found one that had 28 grams....that's a full ounce of sugar in a "health" bar....what an insultSad

You ladies that are looking out for your babies intake of sugar get my deepest respect!!!

They have a bag full of tricks. Not only various names for sugar like sucrose, corn sweeteners, etc but also the fact they use various types of sugar to make it look less. For example, If the first item on the ingredients list is sugar, you know its loaded with the junk. But if they put oats, peanuts, corn sweetener, then sugar, you think sugar is 4th so it must not be much but sugar is again the main ingredient.

Oats ... 25%
peanuts .. 23%
corn sugar 22.5%
sugar ... 22%
etc ....... 13%

Guess what, sugar is 45% but they hid it

I am going to repeat this info cause it is sooooo revealing.

"this is the worst fact of all: When you look at the ingredients listed of any product, you will see the ingredients listed as a percentage of the RDA. Go now to your pantry and notice that the ONLY ingredient NOT listed as a percentage is sugar...because EVERY product has MORE than the 100% RDA....this exception is the direct result of the sugar industry lobbyists.

Think about it......they tell you the percentage of RDA for every ingredient EXCEPT sugar......this is so deceptive.....it actually defeats the law requiring that manufactures tell you what's in their product.

The product list will tell you how many grams of sugar are in the product but not the percentage......and like how many people know about "grams"......... besides you know who.

I was a sugar FIEND growing up. I basically just ate candy. My teeth SUCK compared to my sister. As in, I get cavities occasionally even though I am now in my 30s and brush after every meal and barely eat sugary foods. She never liked candy and I don't even think she has had a cavity ever.

I can confirm that if you can stick to reducing sugar you will eventually feel better and probably lose weight, too. I was never overweight or even chubby, but when I cut back sugar I actually started to look lean and athletic. But the first couple weeks were really hard.

On the plus side, now it takes very little if I want something sweet to satisfy me. I used to need tons of fruit and honey in my greek yogurt or I'd have to have a flavored type otherwise I couldn't stand it. These days I can be happy with plain yogurt with maybe a couple strawberries in it.

Even when I get something sweet it's almost too much. I decided since it was Friday that I would get a donut today, and I just don't feel great now. Between the donut and the coffee I am shaky and wired lol.

Sugar is the main contributor to obesity, fat and flour are the other factors. As has been explained, flour products turn into sugar soon as you eat them. Bread is not the staff of life, it has become the burden on our backs. Also, do not forget about gluten sensitivity. Our bought and paid for politicized fda and the doctors it uses have told us there is nothing to worry about if you are not a celiac patient but there is plenty of evidence gluten is bad for many people, not just celiacs.

Quit eating food with sugar or flour and you WILL lose weight. Also avoid artificial chemicals like aspartame, sucralose, etc.

They tell us glyphosate (roundup) is harmless but they know it isn't. The un says its a carcinogen. The un does not take bribes but our politicians do. Who do you believe? MSG is another nasty chemical, there are many other nasties the fda has allowed in the food supply. Avoid gmo and processed food as much as you can.

Grandote, great point about the FDA vs the UN. Their standards are so much higher than our own. And definitely doesn't seem as though special interest and greed are a big problem over there. For years we've been told to stay away from fats, but now with the recent info that the sugar companies paid to have that info spread to protect their own product it's hard to know what to think. Fats are necessary for a multitude of things, especially brain health. My new trend is to just stay away from processed crap and just eat as naturally as I can.

I find myself reading labels more now than ever. But, how do we really know that what those labels say is true? Every day it becomes harder and harder to find healthy foods. They are feeding us sooo many dangerous and unnecessary chemicals that it's very hard to trust anything anymore or avoid the bad. The foods we use to eat to live are now killing us slowly. I hear all the time that health food stores are under attack and being forced to stop selling many safe, healthy products.
What the hell can we do? Grow our own foods, but even that is becoming hard to do since there are sooo many GMO seeds taking over. Seems that no matter which way you turn, you're gonna be forced to eat the crap they are giving us. It's becoming an almost full time job and almost impossible to eat healthy. Our choices have been drastically limited and will only get worse I'm afraid.

However, somewhere in Norway I believe, there is a huge seed vault with all natural seeds stored. I guess that's for the ruling class to have access to REAL food while they feed us chemicals that make us sick and end up killing us. What's with that?

They are at it again. Yesterday I read an article about findings that sugar can cause cancer. So what are they trying to do? Scare everyone into using the MUCH more dangerous artificial sweeteners?
They are pullin' out all their tactics to kill us off and lower the population. These things are not conspiracy theories anymore. They really are out to get us, and no, I don't own a tin foil hat. Only a brain that can see the trends and put 2 and 2 together and use my head for something other than to grow hair. We are all in serious danger from the MANY dangerous chemicals they allow in our food and water, but say nothing about how harmful that is. There is NOTHING safe anymore. They have all the bases covered and are making it impossible to avoid these dangerous chemicals. It's in everything we use and our health is under attack from every direction. Houston, we've got a BIG problem.
