Avoid These Four White Color Foods

Updated on January 30, 2013

On a diet? Love rice, potatoes, pasta and bread? Well, if their color is "white" they may be forcing you to crave for more carbohydrates because of how your body processes them. If you eliminate them or, at least, eat fewer of them, the cravings will stop and make it easier to lose weight.

The white bread, white rice, white pasta and potatoes are refined through the milling process that strips off the bran leaving food that is mostly carbs. This allows your body to digest them easily and quickly. This may cause you to have a food craving for more because after eating them, your body will release more sugar into the blood. Then, your body responds by releasing more insulin. Insulin is a hormone that allows sugar to enter cells lowering the amount in your blood. Eating the white foods causes the surge in insulin, more than the body needs This causes blood sugar to drop below normal and when your body senses this, you crave more food or carb foods. You respond by eating more and the cycle repeats more often!

Some of the sugar is burned off as energy but much of it is converted to fat and this leads to gaining weight. At first, try to avoid these groups for two weeks. During this time, eat nuts, whole wheat products, beans and lentils to reduce the cravings. You can also eat lean meat and fish. Whole wheat grains are not refined via milling, so always go with wheat pasta, brown rice, whole wheat bread.

Cutting out these four white food products will help you lose weight!

      No, I never was in the Olympics. I was in that kind of physical condition though.

      Well written and very accurate. I have been saying this for many years. I used to be in Olympic athlete condition, and bicycled 60 miles a day. I was 160 Lbs and 9% body fat. If you have the interest, read "The Zone" by Dr. Barry Sears, he says almost exactly the same things, and goes into this subject to an amazingly deep level.
