Anyhow, I need to eliminate the colas from my diet as I have increased in size and well I need to get back into shape.  When I had my first run of weight loss, I cut the carbonated beverages out of it and lost like 50 lbs with sometimes excessive exercising and a not particularly healthy diet but better than it was before in about 6 months. 

Yep,Coke doesn't taste the same over seas as a result of the use of HFCS as you say and HFSC is a major factor in diabetes and other problems.To add insult to injury the corn used is all GMO, known to be carcinogenic in animals. Most animals in fact avoid GMO if given a choice.some sort of animal instinct at work there...

Anyone see the "King Korn" documnetary....worth a look.
