To be honest, I had never heard about this. Now that I know, I'll have to change a few things.

What are your favorite 'white' foods? Cauliflower!! I LOVE IT! I don't eat many "white foods" in the first list..If I am eating a grain or starch it is whole wheat.

Have you replaced 'white' foods with healthier versions? If so, what are they?See above

Do you think you can go a day without bad 'white' foods? Are you willing to try? It wouldn't change my diet much as I don't eat much of it anyway...I will keep track today and see what I eat that is white..so far, nothing has been white.

I love pasta. I tried to make the switch from regular to wholegrain but my family would'nt go for it. I buy wholegrain breads now. Eat brown rice instead of white. 

I don't think I could. I mean its possible but I don't think its necessary. You just have to know bad from good or eat in moderation.

Pasta & breads. We have started replacing white bread with whole grain & buy whole grain rice. Next step will be whole grain pasta.

I replaced rice with brown rice, bread is whole wheat, pasta is whole wheat and made of veggies, we don't bake often and I dont eat cereal- I usually eat oatmeal with fresh fruit.

I love all white foods, however I have switched to whole grain bread and pasta. And last night for dinner we had white bean chicken chili, so good and so healthy for you! I have a serious problem with cookies and ice cream though. :(
