Day 184- Nutrition Bite

In a six-year study of 65,000 women the following results were found--those with diets high in refined carbohydrates from white bread, white rice, and pasta had two and a half times the incidence of Type II diabetes compared with those with high-fiber diets such as whole wheat bread and brown rice. Diabetes is the fourth leading cause of death by disease in America.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
Last weekend, I was visiting St. George, Utah and ate very unhealthy. The first day, I indulged in a hamburger from "In and Out Burger." This convinced me to begin a new diet. I bought the book "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman, which suggests a vegan and vegetarian diet. Yesterday, I spent $50 and loaded my cart with fruits and veggies and feel great!!
