I am getting entrenched in the holistic and natural community. The first thing I learned is that I am not suppose to eat any white foods. Can you tell me more about this? No White Foods, Arkansas
Dear No White Foods:
If the holistic and natural community is telling you not to eat white foods, then you should not eat these foods. This community is up to date on many major health issues today.
Couples and families have been told for years to stop and get the bread – honey. However, bread is a white food which means it can turn into sugar. White foods are your true enemy.
Diabetes is 3rd overall killer of Americans today and the largest killer of African Americans and the Hispanic community. Alzheimers is also being called "Type 3 Diabetes."
Most people believe to live with diabetes and to keep it under control, all they need to do is to avoid foods with sugar (cakes, pies, candies, sodas, etc.) but this is not the case.
Basically, you should not only avoid foods with sugar but you should also avoid eating any WHITE FOOD (flour, bread, potatoes, pasta, etc.).
These foods turns acidic in your body, which means they have the same exact affect as if you ate sugar.
Even though bread will fill you up quicker, it has no nutritional value, and will turn acidic (or into sugar) along with other white foods in your body.
When commercially prepared white bread first became widely available during the early twentieth century, it was discovered that it was not very nutritious.
Most of the important nutrients in the wheat were eliminated when producing white flour, resulting in white bread that was also lacking in nutrients.
It was determined that people who relied heavily on foods made from processed white flour and cornmeal were becoming ill due to a lack of B vitamins.
White bread contains very little fiber, which is important for digestive health -- so give up all white foods, especially if you are O blood type.
