Fructose-free diet can cut your risk of obesity in days

Ditching high fructose corn syrup found in soda and cakes can combat obesity, fatty liver disease and diabetes in as little as eight days.

Researchers got 40 obese children to cut the sugar out of their diet completely.

In barely more than a week the results showed the participants had decreased cholesterol, blood pressure and liver fat levels.

High fructose corn syrup is found in 75 percent of packaged food and drinks largely because its cheaper and 20 percent sweeter than raw sugar.

The sweetener turns on pathways to convert the sugar into fat and store it instead of digesting the substance. The body can ditch the pounds once it's cut from the diet.

So, since both high fructose corn syrup AND sugar were cut from the diet, this study proves nothing towards whether sugar is better for you than fructose.

Remember when fountain Cokes and Dr. Peppers were really good when made with real sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup?
