CWS' don't eat white diet version is similar, except I rarely eat bread of any kind, eat pasta about 4 times/year, and can't remember the last time I had white rice. I do like wild rice and whole-grains, I would have a hard time giving up grains. I also eat a lot of veggies. 2/3 of my plate is veggies--no matter which meal it is--breakfast always has a lot of veggies.

I routinely violate my "don't eat white" diet, but I understand I am eating the equivalent of raw sugar. I currently have no diabetes or pre-diabetic indicators.

"Don't eat white" is really sort of obvious, it may be a chemical characteristic of the appearance of purified starches and sugars. Not my original idea although I put it together myself, but many others have made the same connection.

Okay I got my favorite egg bacon bagel etc. breakfast today but tomorrow I have to pay for my sins with banana, milk and cereal. At least I get my coffee!

I don't eat cereal. I pay for my sins with more veggies, and then more veggies. My secret is there is no bread or white in the house.

The only white in my house is me. My dog is tan. He's a cocker.

I paid for my sins today with cereal and with Lean Cuisine for dinner. Tomorrow I get the bagel, bacon and egg. Yay!!! :laugh:

Seriously I eat starches but should eat less of them.

I should add the worst white of all: vodka and any 80/87 proof (or higher) liquor. It doesn't even need enzymes to enter your blood stream as empty calories, and strains your liver to turn it into something your body can use without poisoning yourself.

Funny how many alcohols are fermented sugars. I guess that's why the body converts them back so easily.

Without even looking at a chemistry book I can tell you the difference between an alcohol, a fat and a sugar are inconsequential, just rearrangement of atoms, easy to change one into another.

Nothing spectacular but it did co-star my own wholemeal bread - shallot omelette in a one-sided toast sandwich. (Not toasted on the inner side)

Unhappy

I went to my local food market and had an awful breakfast. I should have known it from the last time - my first experience of their hog roast roll. On that occasion, I did mention that the crackling was exceedingly salty (to the point where it was almost inedible). It was the first time they were doing the hog roast. So I thought I might try it again and see if it had improved. What a let down! Not only was the crackling the same (nicely crisp but like it had 10 times the usual amount of salt) but the pork was COLD! Lesson learnt!

Yum, Joey!

I had bacon, a fried egg, a toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin, cranberry juice, and coffee.

I didn't eat anything Thursday. So last night after I woke up from a long nap, which would have been my morning, I did scramble up two eggs.
