Healthy Meals for a Glycemic Index Diet : The Effects of White Flour on the Body


I wanted to start out by talking about White
Flour. White flour is actually in a lot of high processed foods, it’s in bagels, muffins,
donuts. Donuts, bagels, muffins they’re all the same thing. They all turn to paste in
the body and what it does, it actually inhibits your villi. You have villi in the small intestines
and what those do; they actually absorb nutrients and toxins into the body. So anything that
goes into your bloodstream that goes into the body will go through your villi. So if
you add water to flour, which is what all those are, bagels, donuts, English muffins,
blueberry muffins you’re in a hurry and you want to grab something like that. It would
actually go in and it makes into a paste. Now those villi don’t really have much to
work with because they can’t move so if they can’t move they can’t get nutrients into the
body. Which is very, very important so white flour is actually not a very good thing. If
you do any kind of white flour or rice or anything, you actually want add fruits or
a vegetable on top. Because it actually lowers the glycemic index and gives the body enough
time to actually be able to break that down so it’s not as pasty.
