No White Foods Diet
Banning starchy white foods from your diet for weight loss.
The No White Foods Diet is a new take on low glycemic diets that shun nutrient-less, high starch and high sugar foods that are well, white. Just as it sounds, while on this diet you simply eliminate all white foods, most notably white sugar and flour, which have been shown to send your blood sugar levels into a frenzy and your hips widening.
There are just a few exceptions to this rule, egg whites cauliflower, parsnips, milk, lean poultry and white fish are allowed. White plant-based foods like potatoes and white beans are also no-nos. You then replace those foods with their colorful and far more nutritious counterparts such as vibrant veggies, sweet fruits and nutty whole grains.
The No White Foods Diet also requests that you limit white solid fats from your diet such as butter and cheddar cheese. These foods are white before food coloring is added to them.
Foods rich in white starches are refined and have the highest glycemic index. The short-term effect of these types of foods is that they make you retain weight and pounds, especially around the midsection. Over the long-term, they can cause an insulin deficiency that leads to diabetes.

Replacing an entire bowl of regular pasta with whole grain pasta and sauce is still going to add quite a few calories to your tally.
