Debunking Diet Myths: White Foods
“Diet Myths that Persist” is the name of an article I read in the newspaper this morning.
The first myth? “White foods aren’t good for you.”
I was thinking this is great. It is always good to remind people that white foods are not the best foods to be consuming. But, the person who wrote the article (Jessica Girdwain) doesn’t even know what the term “white foods” means. She didn’t even come close to the real meaning of “white foods”. What a joke of an article.
She talked about white foods meaning white fruits and veggies, and that even though they are not as high in nutrients as brightly colored fruits and vegetables, they are beneficial to consume in your diet.
Wow, what an insult. Do you really think we are that stupid Jessica?
“White foods” pertains to white pasta, white bread and all processed foods made from white flour or white rice. Processed foods are high in simple carbs and low in fiber and release sugar into the bloodstream very quickly. If this sugar is not used up in a calorie burning session right away it will turn into body fat. Consuming processed foods leads to weight gain, and also causes inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the main cause of heart attacks, arthritis, cancer; disease in general in the body.
Now that you are informed Jessica, try again.
