What Happened To My Body When I Stopped Drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup.
First let me say that I have not fully escaped it yet since it is in so many foods but since most of our consumption of nutrients comes through drinking liquids I have cut out alot.

First. I lost a ton of weight immediately. I cut out ALL soda and fake juices which are juices with 2% juicy and a ton of High fructose corn syrup.

My legs below the knee were killing me and tightening up like crazy when I walked, this stoppd almost immediately when I stopped the High fructose corn syrup.

I replaced it with 100% juice or Water. I still drink sugar in coffee or tea but stopped buying the ready made tea.

A day or two after stopping my muscles would spasm like crazy all over my body and I would get painful cramps with the slightest movement. I hear that this is what heroin addicts go through.

It was scary as hell. I was very thirsty for water probably because I was not getting the water from the artificial juice and soda.

Drinking pure juice is expensive as hell and that is ad living in the wealthiest country in the world, America.

Americans blame themselves for being fat but no one stops to realize the increase in production of CHEAP highly processed,high salt foods that were not on the shelves in the 1970's and before that.

Americans need to be subsidized for healthy foods and I'm not ashamed to say it because if Oil companies and Big Agriculture can be subsidized then Americans should not be priced out of eating healthy.

Why didn't Bloomberg in NY go after companies who produce products mad with High Fructose corn Syrup, instead he went all Nanny State and tried to control the publics consumption.
But it begs the question: If these Drinks called "Sugary" drinks(Which actually have no Sugar in them) are so bad why are companies being allowed to used this fattening toxic sweetener?

Americans need to star thinking for themselves and stop letting Capitalism frame every debate.

Re: What Happened To My Body When I Stopped Drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I have been noticing more and more the corn syrup being in sooooooo many items. I drink mostly pure water and coffee, however sometimes I grab a drink (not pop) of some readymade kind. Also, I decided today no more ice cream or any other sweet stuff unless I make it myself from scratch.

I hope those leg pains will go away. I am NOT that old.

Again, thanks.

It must be a scam that Americans can't get products made with cane sugar. Why all the "corn syrup"? Sugar is cheap and easily available.

corn is subsidized by the government making corn syrup cheaper than real sugar, so it is what manufacturers use.

Re: What Happened To My Body When I Stopped Drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup.
I stopped drinking sodapop over 25 years ago, when it was still made with real sugar. Glad I did. Now CocaCola tastes like SHIT to me. Once in awhile I will take a sip of someone's soda (everyone else drinks this poison) and I'm amazed that ANYONE can drink this GARBAGE and think it tastes good!

I only drink water. Or coffee in the morning. No creature in the world will drink anything but water. What does that tell you?

In a way it is. I remember hearing that HFCS is like 40x more sweet than regular sugar. Therefore it is more addictive. Then Aspertame is even sweeter and more addictive than that!

I stopped drinking all soda for my New Years Resolution, and I went through the weight loss myself, but not the body jitters. I will say that I did have a rough time getting on to coffee, and usually have to put a bit of cane sugar in my first cup. I think its mainly so my stomach has something to actually process, as I don't need it afterward.

I've also noticed I maintain about the same energy level as before, even though my caffiene and sugar intake are severely reduced (I'd say close to 60%...probably more, but coffee is the oddball on that). When I sleep I sleep sounder, and have noticed my body healing up pretty well. I had some pains from an old stress fracture injury, but between this and some calcium supplements it went away in a couple of days.

The hardest part about stopping is getting hooked on water. You're so used to having taste in your drink that to have nothing is almost like having something that tastes bad. What I started doing was putting a little sea salt in my water. Not a lot, but just enough to at least fool my tastebuds into it not being water and accepting it as something that was good. This was for a week then I started to tone it down and now I don't use any at all. I suppose someone else could use raw sugar or maybe honey depending on what they want to do, but I prefer salty over sweet most of the time so that is what I went with.

Re: What Happened To My Body When I Stopped Drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup.
They must be artificially jacking up the price of cane sugar or banning it from being imported to the USA. Cane sugar is really cheap, there's no way that some manufactured syrup could compete with it.

In Australia, people can buy packaged sugar at the supermarket for $1/kg. Obviously manufacturers buying in bulk can get it a lot cheaper than that.

'round here they're doing Mountain Dew Throwback in 12oz Glass Bottles, made with Beet Sugar and the formula from the 70's.

It's so smooth and delicious!

They make a Pepsi Throwback too, but Pepsi has always sucked hard.

Also, look for Kosher Coke around Passover. Made with sugar.

Beware of beet sugar as well. 80-90% is Genetically modified by our enemy Monsanto.

Stick with pure cane sugar or pure organic stevia power is even better.

Also, most honey you buy in stores has about 1% real honey and actually has a lot of hfcs. Buy locally made honey, or even better, raw organic honey. It actually has health benefits.

Re: What Happened To My Body When I Stopped Drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup.
I went to Maui Hawaii recently. In the 70s, there were 5 sugar cane plants in operation going full guns. Now there is only one left. The islanders are worried about it closing too.
HFCS is cheaper as a substitute than Cane as a crop. The cost of shipping it to the mainland is not cost effective anymore.
On the other hand, corn grows all over America like a weed compared to Cane.
Americans can't taste the difference.
Corn is GMO, more toxic now. Roundup.
Cane is not.
Land is precious in Hawaii. Non-royal line from King Komeamea can't own it. Only lease it 99 years.
Cane is un-necessary now, according to Muuuuunsanto.
They built a better mouse trap with Corn instead of Cane.
