33. White Bread has been stripped of all fiber and nutrients
That means the same logic should be applied to white bread, too. To meet your daily intake of gut-healthy fiber and nourish your body with the nutrients it needs, skip the white slices and bagels and opt for whole-wheat or sprouted bread. White bread and pasta are made from refined grains, which means that they have been stripped of all their fiber and nutrients and become high-glycemic. This says that your blood pressure spikes and falls quickly.
When you overeat pasta and bread, you can develop diabetes and also become obese because your body can’t process the carbs quick enough. If you can’t let go of the pasta and bread, opt for the fiber-rich and unrefined alternative. Brown, whole wheat and bean-based pastas will provide you with the needed fiber to keep you regular. The same goes for bread. Whole-wheat sprouted bread is among the healthiest options available.
