It's absolutely physical/physiological and not.....mental.
Corn-syrup makes us consume more glucose which turns straight into fat.
You are both right, and wrong.
Where you are right... Mexican Coke (tee hee) with real sugar is PHYSICALLY different than American Coke. IT LITERALLY does have more calories in it. Only 10 per 12 ouces, but still, physically it packs more energy in the same volume.
I suspect that HFCS ounce per ouce is sweeter than real sugar, thus to achieve the same taste, the HFCS version uses more water in the forumla, thus less calories.
Where you are wrong. Differentiating between the two is completely in your head. You already have that opinion formed and you KNOW where the can you are holding came from, thus, you already have your mind made up that at the end of the first can of Mexican Coke you are going to "feel full"..
