It really is discouraging…start reading those ingredients carefully…when I first began to REALLY change my eating in January (I always thought I ate pretty healthy), I could not believe all the places that corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup is hidden. If we do nothing else during this program, I pray that we get the corn syrup out of our houses.  Hey, someone has to be the bad guy…
