3. White bread and pasta
There are a lot of reasons why you should skip white bread. First of all, consuming white bread regularly can lead to a higher risk of developing serious health issues such as diabetes and heart disease. And, last but not least, white bread consumption is often associated with extra pounds.
Plus, white bread has a high glycemic index and this translates to a spike in blood sugar levels. Everything refined should be avoided, namely white bread, rice, crackers, pasta and, of course pretzels. Opt for whole instead. Most nutritionists recommend at least 48 grams of whole grains daily, so try to replace refined foods with whole foods—you will most definitely add more value to your meals.
