My doctor told me to avoid white flour, white rice, white sugar, white pasta and even white potatoes. These foods rapidly increase blood sugar and thus the release of insulin from the pancreas. this leads to an increase in apetite and fat storage in the body. So if you are having trouble controlling your appetite you might want to eliminate these foods from your diet. Did you know you can buy whole wheat macaroni? When you buy brown sugar make sure it cakes. Brown sugar that is granular or crumbly is actually white sugar colored with molasses This has been a public health service message brought to you by Da River .
