grains and weight loss

OK, food is good...not so sure about that other thing.

I just finished the pancreas module, and am excited to focus on balanceing fats, proteins and carbs. I've been experimenting with whole wheat, natural yeast breads. I also love oatmeal for breakfast, quinoa salads etc...Just wondering what your thoughts are on grains and weight loss...should they be included in a weight loss diet (and balanced with fats/proteins) or should I lay off the grains while I am trying to reduce pounds, and focus on veggies for carbs, with a little fruit? What about white potatoes?? sweet potatoes, etc?
thanks!

When I go off grains and dairy I lose weight. 20 pounds the first time. Still tough to get below 190.

As far as your body is concerned, white potatoes are cotton candy. Think green and leafy instead of white and starchy for your carbs. Sweet potatoes arent' bad. Corn is terrible. Google high glycemic index foods and you'll find lots of lists. You want low not high BTW.

Also exercise is purportedly helpful. I recently got a gym membership and have consistently lost forty dollars a month! :blob:
