Processed grains such as pasta, rice, and white bread missing the whole grain component are hard to give up. They are light, fluffy, and sweet. If you are like me, you just LOVE them. Crusty bread anyone?
Foods that contain simple carbohydrates (such as white bread) raise blood glucose levels and diabetics need to count how many carbohydrates they eat to keep their blood sugar level low. People trying to lose weight know that processed carbs pack a calorie punch without much fiber or nutritional upside.
