No White Diet

Updated on January 9, 2018

How the No White Diet Works

No White Diet: This diet is also called the “No White Food Diet” and it consists of eliminating all of the white flour floods, white rice, sugar, salt, potatoes and even milk completely. The main reasoning behind what others find an extreme way of dieting is the elimination of insulin producing carbohydrates.

Diet has proved its efficiency and has been endorsed by famous celebrities. Combined with regular exercise this diet can help an average person to lose between 4 to 7 pounds in a month. If you’re just starting out, you might want to take small steps and try a less extreme form of the no white diet.

The no white food diet works by targeting and eliminating all of the high-insulin producing carbohydrates in your daily meals. These carbohydrates are found in regular foods such as bread, white rice, potatoes, and pastries. Anything that is made from white flour is also eliminated from the no white diet.

These foods are eliminated from the diet because they have an impact on your blood sugar levels. They cause it to rise which subsequently signals your body to produce insulin in order to level it out. Whenever your body produces insulin you get cravings and you’re more likely to over-eat.

The no white diet might seem abnormal at first because it is telling you the eliminate some of the staples in an average person’s daily diet. In reality some of these foods, especially the white flour ones, are not very healthy to begin with. Refined products like white flour and sugar lose a lot of their nutrients in the process.

Milk is also removed from many versions of the no white food diet. This is not always a good idea, especially if you are just starting out or want to try a more balanced approach to the diet. Use skim milk or low fat milk to replace the regular from your diet if you don’t want to completely eliminate it.

Practical Application

The name of the no white food diet comes from avoiding any foods of the color white. In practice this is not always a good idea because some of the white foods can be good for you. You also risk eating something with a lot of calories just because it isn’t white.

A good rule of thumb is to go with any vegetables expect potatoes, fresh fruit and fish, nuts, low fat meat, whole grain products, brown rice, olive oil and so on. These foods have already been proven to be effective from other diets and most of them also have a positive impact on your body.

The no white diet doesn’t require any special measurements of portions so you’re free to balance your own meals. This doesn’t mean you can’t make your own portions. Having a set portion will have you avoid over-eating because we always tend to finish everything in the plate.

Eliminating the refined flour, sugar and salt foods from your diet also has a beneficial impact on your health. It can help fight and prevent diabetes, heart disease, high-blood pressure and numerous other health problems that are related to a poor diet. Fiber-high foods such as whole grains and vegetables will also regulate your bowel movements.

There is also potential negative impact when using the no white diet. Carbohydrates are fuel for our muscles and are required in our daily meals. When we lose fat fast, we also lose muscle. In order to avoid this and other negative effects don’t go on a crash course no white food diet.

Overall Conclusion

The no white diet will help you lose weight and has other beneficial effects from eliminating white flour, sugars and salt from your diet. That being said, you should avoid trying an extreme version of it even if it promises fast weight loss. Taking a steady approach and slowly replacing bad foods from your meals is a much more practical and safe way of losing weight.
