While at a dinner the other evening, I had a chance to speak with a woman that had managed to lose 45 pounds in 9 months. This woman had definitely accomplished a lot. Sitting near me, she looked very healthy and had lots of energy. When asked what she had done to accomplish this, she said she had changed her diet and walked 4.5 miles every day. She specifically noted that she would not have lost the weight simply by walking.
She had gone on what could be termed the “White Elimination” program. In essence, anything that is white was off limits to eat. This meant no milk; no white sugar; no white rice; no white flour and no white potato. Included in this was the removal of all canned, processed and frozen foods.
She had to revamp her thoughts on mealtime. She increased the amounts of fresh vegetables and fruits she consumed daily.
Eliminating all white foods is not a new concept. It is a good process for reducing the amount of processed foods that usually uses large amounts of sugar to compensate for the very high content of table salt.
You may want to try your own version of this diet and see how it works for you.
