Simple carbohydrates like white bread, white pasta, white rice, and of course, white sugar, all cause your blood sugar to spike, and subsequent dips might make you crave even more sugar. White foods are also often devoid of essential nutrients that your body needs. Today, try to swap these foods for healthier alternatives, like whole grain bread, brown rice, and whole wheat pasta -- and try to keep it up!

There are a few white foods that still pass muster. Don't worry about eating yogurt or cauliflower, for example.

Which white foods are your weakness?

We don't use white flour or white sugar.

We occasionally get white pasta but it's mainly wheat.  We sometimes eat white rice because we can't always get the boys to eat the brown.  I use rice wraps with my summer rolls, which are white rice :-/

I guess my white weakness is my rice wraps.  I've switched to brown rice maifun noodles though

For me the only thing I do is mostly use white flour. I don't make much pasta, rice I use whole grain. I don't eat much bread and when I do it's always wheat bread.

Do this already. and as for the bread...Make my own. I sure do appreciate the bread machine.  I use brown rice and quinoa. I'm not wild about pasta, so I've experimented with zucchini ribbons, and I actually prefer spagghetti squash to spagghetti.
