    Default Australia - a mismatch between reputation and reality

    High fructose corn syrup is one of the most unhealthy things you can consume and it's what sweetens most processed foods/soda/etc. but in Australia companies can get away with just labeling it 'fruit syrup' or 'sugar syrup.' Australia's labeling laws are so slack and favor the company rather than the consumer. Very frustrating. Palm oil is another that hides behind 'vegetable oil' or similar, you have to really be willing to research certain things if you really want to avoid specific ingredients.

    I'm 161cm and when I was 62kg was the best I've ever looked.
    I'm a size 10, if I put on 10 kilos I would wear what, at least a size 14? That's overweight to me.

    Second eating full fat of everything we do here ( milk yoghurt, cheese etc) low fat versions have added sugar. So deceiving

    Yeah I don't do diet products. What's the point?!
    Would rather have a small portion of the real deal rather than a large serving of something bland.

    Will check those books. Thanks for the pointers

    Why specifically fructose? I assume added fructose. Why not glucose, sucrose and the weird sugars they add to products to "hide" the sugar content? I've read cutting out fructose before but it just doesn't seem to make sense to me unless fresh fruits are also the "bad guy".

    Also, where does the fructose in grapes go when making wine? Is it all broken down?

    I wish I had the brain power to explain it all right now, lol!

    The link I posted above about wine explains where the fructose goes in wine making.

    If you wanted to learn more about the way the different sugars are processed by the body, I'd reccomended Sweet Poison by David Gillespie or watching That Sugar Film. He explains it much better than my overtired and half asleep brain could right now!

    If I remember I'll try to find some good summaries of the info and post it in the morning.

    As for now I'm off to sleep!
