Diet Tips, Product Bans and High Fructose Corn Syrup

In our weekly rundown of health, fitness and diet articles, the tips in this article are fantastic! This is one of the best I have read in a very long time. I would print this out and stick it on the refrigerator, or somewhere that you are going to see it often.

FDA Bans Que She Weight Loss Capsules because they have banned pharmaceutical products in them, include Ephedrine, a beta-blocker and a prescription diet pill. If you have any of this on your shelf, throw it out.

Finally, although we have talked about just how bad high fructose corn syrup is for you, here is added proof--it increased blood pressure in people with no family history of hypertension. Stay away from sodas and energy drinks, please!
