What do I mean by ‘devils?’ I use the word devils due the negative, fat gaining/storing effect the substances I am going to talk about have on your body. Why do I call them ‘white’ devils? Quite simply because all the substances are white!
There are 4 main categories of white devils;
1/ White Flour
2/ White (table) salt
3/ White sugar
4/ White starches (i.e. bread, pasta, rice).
All the above foods are white for a reason, they have been stripped of all their natural goodness and have a load of nasty preservatives, e-numbers and other junk added to them. In their pure natural ‘brown’ form they are far better for you. (In the case of salt you obviously can’t get a ‘brown’ alternative,’ you should go for natural sea salt).
This means that rather than the food being in its natural form and being of some nutritional value to your body, its totally refined and totally useless to your body. And because your body has no use for it, it will end up being stored as fat.
That’s not to say that brown sugar and brown flour are really good for you and you can eat as much as you like. That’s obviously not true as they are still calorie dense foods. But nevertheless they are FAR FAR better for you and your waistline than the horrible refined alternatives.
Today’s Takeaway -Avoid the white devils like the plague. Always go for the natural ‘brown’ option instead.
