Really, you dont want to know.
Its seems unthinkable, impossible, inconceivable. You may decide its just not worth it.
But if you want to lose weight, heres the one sure-fire action nutritionists recommend you take to budge the scales needle in your favor: give up flour.
This is not a new notion. Remember the anti-white diet no flour, no sugar, no rice? Well, this is it in simpler form. No bread, no pasta, no pizza. No bagels, no pancakes, no doughnuts. No cookies, no cakes, no pies.
If you think, No problem, Ill just go gluten-free, think again. Most flour substitutes are made primarily of rice, which is more caloric and not nearly as tasty.
But here, a little hope.
Quinoa pasta, while still a refined grain, is healthier than wheat pasta, contains protein and tastes virtually the same. Chocolate has no flour. Neither does ice cream. Not that youll lose a lot of weight if you trade chocolates and ice cream for cake and cookies, but at least you can find an occasional allowable treat.
Now, deep breath. Skip the pizza today and youre on your way.
