I'm at the point where I want to eat healthy, but simply don't have the will. lol


Yeah... that's part of the problem. Junk food is easily accessible and often costs less. You have to make a special effort to eat healthy and that effort also includes being able to walk past aisles and aisles of junk food to get to the maybe 1/2 of an aisle in the grocery store that isn't junk food.

I think this is why married people live longer than single people. Married people tend to force each other to eat right and then it takes special effort to cheat on the diet. I know my dad had horrible eating habits but my mom forced him to eat right at least 5 times a week if not more.

My local convenience store sells it in bottles and by the case of twelve. It's always stocked.

I haven't seen Vanilla Coke in stores in a LONG time. I don't think it exists in Colorado

I've been able to occasionally find vanilla Coke around here (northern California) from a couple spots, but even those places stock it much less regularly than they used to. Seems it's disappearing. And it's the best Coke too!

all of it high fructose corn syrup.


It's not a consolation, but Dew Throwback exists and is made with cane sugar. So... hooray?


Some people prefer corn syrup. My dad can't stand the Throwback Dews. I'm not sure about myself as I don't really have a point of reference. The closest I have is Sierra Mist Natural vs Sprite. I definitely prefer Sprite but I assume it's just that I prefer the fact that Coke products tend to be less sweet than the pepsi equivalents and I don't enjoy the extra sweetness. There's a store where I can get Mexican coke which uses cane sugar so I'll have to try it next to a normal one.


Its been proven that the human body has problems digestion corn syrup in an shape or form. People who drink large amounts of it will have health problems down the road.

You'll have health problems ingesting too much of anything.

The thing is, entire civilizations had subsisted on corn or maize as a primary staple. If it were causing universal health problems, we'd have known about it long ago.

In fact, the word "corn" is actually a general term for the local staple cereal.

Yeah, about that.

http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20101011/how-sugar-compares-with-high-fructose-corn-syrup

Which cites sources, and quotes studies. There is also a plethora of other articles out there all stating the same thing.

I'm not necessarily even saying your article is wrong, but it needs to back up it's claim that studies show HFCS can take 4 days to digest vs sugar taking far less when there are studies and articles out there that say otherwise.


If sugar is staying in your bloodstream for 4 days, or even just the one day it claims sucrose takes, you probably don't have any feeling in your feet/legs because that's so far past diabetes it's not even funny. From stomach to burned/absorbed by cells for immediate use or converted to fat is about 30 minutes in a healthy individual. The test to see if my body absorbed sugars properly (general checkup in January, alongside a lipid panel and all that fun stuff) took less than ten minutes from needle in my arm to the doctor giving me a positive (good) result, the test basically amounts to adding a bit of sugar to a blood sample and seeing if it reacts, the reaction is basically instantaneous if you aren't diabetic (either type 1 or type 2).

This seems relevant to the conversation but I'm not sure how to work it in so I'll just say it. High blood sugar is a symptom of type 2 diabetes, not the cause. If you don't have it your body will absorb sugars for as long as it can produce insulin and your blood sugar may spike but it will always equalize relatively quickly. if you do have type 2 diabetes your body struggles to process sugar because your cells will actually become near immune to the effects of insulin despite your body producing plenty. This means every little bit of sugar you take in hangs around in your blood for an extended period of time until either it does eventually get absorbed or your body disposes of it via urination.
