Really tuning in my diet and thought I had eliminated all HFCS from my diet.
To my surprise it is even in my non fat yogurt! Unreal. Will eating 3- 8oz. servings of yogurt daily with HFCS be that detrimental or should I give up the yogurt all together and lose any health benefits?
Looked at grocery store and all yogurts had at least some HFCS!
I wasn’t trying to imply that they were just as bad for you, just that the natural stores had plenty of bad for you things in them. Sorry, I wasn’t clear.
They’ve got aisles of granola bars, cookies, crackers, candy, chips, etc. Their bakery, while more “natural” is still filled with things that we shouldn’t eat. From cheesecake to creme brulee to ginger bread loafs. Then, even breads that aren’t made with whole grains.
I don’t dispute that organic is better for you, but organic sugar makes you just as fat as “regular” sugar. And, I don’t think healthy sounding things like rice syrup are healthier than plain ol’ sugar.
I like to shop there because I can get some things that are healthier, but you still have to be careful to read the labels. After all, they cater to all sorts of “healthy” people, including vegetarians, vegans, people looking for more soy, hemp, raw foods, organic foods, etc.
But, I can’t find one thing in that store that uses any artificial sweetener, yet HFCS is fairly easy to find. Not a lot of transfats, there, but tons of Low Fat this and Low Fat that.
The huge, giant cookies at Whole Foods are good, but I don’t see them as any healthier than the huge, giant cookies at Pavilions. Sure, the molassis in the one cookie adds a little something, but the brown sugar at Pavilions is might tasty, too.[/quote]
Well,if I’m bulking and I go to have a piece of cake,I’d rather have one thats organic dark chocolate with no trans fat than one full of trans fat.The lesser of two evils,lol. Not to mention organic fodos aren’t full of toxins and chemicals.
