In her chapter "Designer Labels: Are all Threads (Foods) created equal?" she states, "I once got in a heated discussion with another nutritionist about brown rice being better for you than white rice. I took out 2 boxes and compared them. The difference was that there was one tiny gram of fiber in the brown rice versus no fiber in the white rice. Guess what Rice is not a good source of fiber."
Except polishing white rice from brown destroys 67% of B3, 80% of B1, 90% of B6, half the manganese, half the phosphorus, 60% of the iron, and all of the "tiny bit" of fiber and essential fatty acids, while only synthetic versions of B1, B3, and iron are added back. Something the box isn't going to tell you! To me that is a big enough difference to buy the brown (or black or red) rice, (preferably organic) and leave the nutrient deficient polished white rice on the shelf.
She goes on to tell a father that the [white] color of bread does not matter as much as the fiber content. Leaving aside what we have done to wheat in the last decades and the skyrocketing growth in celiac disease and gluten sensitivities, the vitamins and minerals found in whole grains far outweigh their white counterparts. Take a look sometimes at some of those high fiber white breads on the shelves and read exactly where too much of that added fiber comes from. Ouch!Read more ›
Unfortunately the author condemns diets that encourage the avoidance of certain types of foods and labels them as FADs (fast acting diets) and suggests that nutrients must be derived from every food group - including bread, pasta and rice. It's astonishing that the author recommends such foods despite the fact that they are derived from refined carbohydrates and are largely responsible for destabilizing appetite control in most people and leading to obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Sorry Dr Stoler but obesity and it's associated morbidities cannot be addressed by such anachronistic views.
