The #1 worst carb ever (Don't Eat This)
Sent Saturday, November 24, 2012
If you're anything like me you've been eating a bunch of carbs the last few days and it doesn't look to be slowing down for New Year Resolution time with Christmas right around the corner.
Joel Marion one of the guys from BioTrust gave me a bottle of IC-5 to try out the other day and I wanted you to know about it.
scientifically-designed IC-5(TM) helps re-route the carbs you eat so they
are more likely to be stored in muscle as energy instead of your body
storing them as unsightly body fat--or even worse, chronically elevating
your blood sugar levels, a major health concern.
way you can still eat your favorite carbs this holiday season (within
reason) without packing on the pounds. Learn more at this link:

===================== The #1 WORST Carb EVER
By Josh Bezoni
And the #1 worst carb ever is...(drum roll please)
High Fructose Corn Syrup
high fructose corn syrup (called HFCS and "corn sugar") may sound
healthy, it actually is anything but. This dirt cheap,
chemically-altered sweetener shuts down leptin, a fat-regulating hormone
in your body that is responsible for sending "hunger signals" from your
stomach to your brain.
Essentially leptin lets you know when
you're full. And when your brain doesn't get the message, you keep
eating and eating and eating while the manufacturers of high fructose
corn syrup, and the products that contain it, keep making more and more
and more money.
Here's an example from a recent study. Test
subjects were divided into two groups--one was given a glucose (sugar)
beverage to add to their diet, while the other group was given a
beverage containing high fructose corn syrup to add to their diets.
While both test groups gained weight, the group consuming high fructose
corn syrup packed on intra-abdominal fat (or belly fat).
Why is that so startling?
because this particular kind of fat causes diabetes and heart disease.
So, not only is high fructose corn syrup causing you to eat more than
you should, it is literally putting your health at risk.
to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American consumes 42
pounds of HFCS a year. That's more than 75,000 empty calories that have
no nutritional value! What's more, teenagers are consuming 15 to 20
teaspoons of HFCS a day when they need to be eating nutrient-dense foods
for growth and lifelong health.
It's no wonder that The
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says that HFCS use increased by
4,000% between 1970 and 1990. The manufacturers of HFCS really are
cashing in big... just like drug dealers... while America is adding belly
fat at a very dangerous rate.
Speaking of a drug, have you ever
indulged in a sweet dessert that just wouldn't fill you up no matter how
much you ate? One of those treats that you have no self-control over,
like, oh, I don't know... maybe soft drinks, fruit juices, energy drinks,
ice cream, pudding, jellies, most "fat-free" foods, chocolate, crackers,
cereals, syrups, candies, or desserts? If that's the case, you may want
to check out the food label. Chances are it contains a large amount of
high fructose corn syrup.
And remember, on American food labels
ingredients are listed in order of the most abundant to the least. So
if, for example, you see HFCS listed anywhere in the first five
ingredients, that's very bad. Instead, you'll want to choose a version
that doesn't contain HFCS at all.
As an alternative to HFCS, I
recommend the new zero- or low-calorie sweeteners like truvia(TM),
Z-Sweet®, and Sun Crystals(TM) that are made with natural sources, such as
erythritol and stevia. You can find these at most grocery stores. These
natural sweeteners can be used instead of sugar packets in your hot
beverages, on oatmeal, and even in baked goods to some extent.
is an all-natural, zero-calorie sweetener that is fermented from sugars
and found naturally in many fruits and vegetables. It has no calories,
no glycemic impact, and is only slightly sweeter than real sugar. It is
also recognized as safe by the FDA.
Other sugar alcohols (such
as xylitol or maltitol) frequently are blamed for side effects like gas
and diarrhea when people overdo sugar-free treats. However, erythritol
is absorbed before it reaches the large intestine, so it does not
normally cause these digestive effects.
In the U.S., the
granular form is marketed under the name Z-Sweet® and found in other
natural sweeteners including Sun Crystals(TM) (which is a mixture of
erythritol and raw cane sugar so it's not zero-calorie) and truvia(TM)
(which contains a mixture of erythritol and stevia).
rebaudiana is a leaf that first gained popularity in South America as a
no-calorie, natural sweetener with a sweetness that is 30-45 times
greater than that of table sugar. It's been used all over the world for
years as a safe, natural no-calorie sweetener.
After a long
debate (which many people believe was due to the chemical sweetener
industry trying to block it), it's been approved for use in the United
States. You can find stevia under the names PureVia(TM), SweetLeaf(TM), and
mixed with erythritol in truvia(TM).
It's important to remember
that you should use all sugar alternatives, even natural ones,
sparingly. Let your body learn that it doesn't need sweets all the time
to be satisfied, and you'll be on the fast track to better health.
while High Fructose Corn Syrup just may be the #1 worst carb ever, does
that mean you should be avoiding ALL carbohydrates? Absolutely not!
Carbs aren't the enemy, just like fat isn't...these nutrients are a
healthy part of any wholesome fat-burning diet.
But what if you
could easily increase your carbohydrate tolerance to ensure that the
carbs you eat get shuttled toward muscle to be used as energy instead of
deposited on your hips, thighs, butt, and love handles?
Well you can,
with the most cutting-edge insulin sensitivity and blood sugar
management formula ever developed, IC-5. And IC-5 is so simple to use...
just take 2 capsules 15-minutes before any carb-containing meal and
you'll be well on your way to processing the carbs you eat...the right
