The Hidden Source of Belly Fat

Dr. Eric Berg DC


MSG or monosodium glutamate is one of the most common flavor enhancers in the market.

MSG intensifies the taste buds of your mouth. It makes food taste better than it really is. It can trick the taste buds in your mouth into eating lower quality food so that the food manufacturing companies can make more profits. But, it has major side-effects.

It is very addictive, you eat more food, it increases serotonin and it increases insulin by 300%. It is classified as modified food starch.

You would be surprised how many foods in a regular grocery store has modified food starch.


What is Insulin?

Insulin is the main hormone that make people fat. In the presence of insulin, you are not going to be able to burn any fat.

All 6 fat burning hormones are completely blocked by this hormone called insulin. This hormone is triggered by sugars, fine carbs and MSG.

MSG triggers triglycerides which are blood fats, a fatty liver and all sorts of health problems. MSG is in fast foods.


Most companies hide the fact that their ingredients have MSG by renaming it to:

  1. Modified Corn Starch

  2. Natural Flavors

  3. Smoke Flavors

  4. Autolyzed Yeast Extract
