|70-79%||Whole-grain bread, millet, white rice, new potatoes|
|60-69%||White bread, shredded wheat, bananas, raisins, Mars Bars|
|50-59%||Spaghetti, corn, whole cereals, peas, yams, potato chips|

Based on this chart I recommend following two simple dietary rules to lose body fat.
- Don’t eat anything made from grain regardless of whether it’s “whole grains.”
- Don’t eat anything made from potatoes.
I know it can be tough at first to get used to the change. But trust me on this one; I’ve succeeded in making the change and I’ve seen hundreds of patients succeed in putting their body fat problem behind them following these two simple changes.
If you can do it, you’ll not only lose weight while eating foods you enjoy, you’ll feel better and age better too.
To Your Good Health,
