You Go Jillian!

Jillian Michaels Urges Subway to Remove High Fructose Corn Syrup from Breads

Although I have a love/hate relationship with Jillian Michaels, I have to say that she often knows what she’s talking about in the area of nutrition and she really inspires people to push themselves in their work outs.  I love it that she’s holding Subway accountable for the ingredients they are putting in their food, especially since they claim to be a healthy fast food option.

Not only does high fructose corn syrup cause weight gain, but it leads to conditions like high blood pressure, insulin resistance and accelerated bone loss.  This deadly product is all around us in soft drinks, processed foods and juices, and even in products you wouldn’t expect like salad dressings and “healthy” teas and sports drinks. We have to read those labels people, especially when it comes to beverages!  When in doubt, go for WATER…it’s the most common nutritional deficiency in the U.S. population!

The Longevity Pharmacy carries Stevia, a great alternative to artificial sweeteners.  We have it in powder form as well as in individual packets for flavoring drinks.
