My Dr told me I should go on a diet. HDL (Good Cholesterol) was above average and my LDL (bad Cholesterol) was way below average. HOWEVER, my Triglyceride was high. Also have a family history of diabetes. Weight was also ABOVE average.
So, "No White" diet was given to me:
No white rice.
No white potatoes.
No white bread.
No white flour.
No white sugar.
No grits. We live in NC.
No pasta. Whole wheat and low Carb are okay.
Fruits - Vegetables - Nuts - Proteins are Okay.
Doctor wanted me to stop eating anything with high glycemic index. No refined or high processed foods.
Started last August and have lost almost 14%. Still have more to go.
