Day 152- Nutrition Bite

"People are getting alot more fructose from high-fructose corn syrup contained in processed foods and sweetened beverages than from eating fruit."
- Dr. Peter J Havel, D.V.M, Ph.D

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I observe high school students drinking and eating more foods with high-fuctose corn syrup than fructose from fruit. The regular soda machines were removed from the schools in Utah, but the diet coke, minute maid machines, and candy machines remain. Umm.. I guess they are beginning to fight the battle in one direction. I think the Utah schools should simply remove all of the soda and candy machines like NYC public schools did. Today, I forgot my sack breakfast, lunch, and wallet. I am starving!! I did eat the cookie in my desk, which was empty calories. I'll have to try negotiating with the lunch ladies. They might have some healthy foods to spare.
