If you want to prioritize, avoid the ones with the highest glycemic index and glycemic load.

Anything with empty calories. Sugar, alcohol--anything with no nutrients.

Sugar, sugar, sugar. Wheat, wheat, wheat.

I'm shocked that Cranberry juice is so high in that chart at r2....I always thought Cranberry juice was healthy.

r9 Any kind of fruit juice is just concentrated fructose. Far from healthy.

Every time I have tried a low carb diet I gain weight and feel sick. Wish it worked for me. I limit myself to 1000 calories a day ( female )

So what can we drink in addition to water?

Juice is one of the worst things you can drink. You get all the sugars from the fruit, but none of the fiber.

[quote]So what can we drink in addition to water?
Flavored carbonated water
Diet soda, but sparingly
Unsweetened coffee or tea

My doctor wants me to lose weight. She told me to stop eating pasta and bread. She also said to weigh myself 3 times a week.

There is no such thing as "cranberry juice" on the market, R9. It is "cranberry juice cocktail" (on this list - other varieties are a fruit blend with a high proportion of apple juice) and is largely sugar water with cranberry juice for flavor.
And this chart is not about "healthy." It is about one measure, for glycemic loads. The chemical benefits of cranberries, such as they are available from the cocktail, still apply, as do the various benefits from other foods here.
Don't take R2 literally. Moderation and balance are more important than basing one's nutrition on a single value. (Although of course sugars in their complexity of use are a challenge to the body is overdone.)

If you're a food addict, you should go cold turkey from all of the following, having a meal plan in place:
-Flours (ALL of them) -Sugar -Starches (ALL of them) -Sugar alcohols -Fruit juice -Dried Fruit -White potatoes -White rice -Corn meal -Popcorn -Chips of any kind
If you don't have severe food issues and are able to eliminate items from your diet gradually, the top three are the most crucial.

I thought sugar alcohols were ok.

Lots of anti-carb nazis here. Just eat half the carbs you usually do and you will get results. Taking out white bread and rice is a no brainer.
I need carbs to keep me sane and to keep me from having bad breath. People who don't drink juice usually are not supplementing their vitamin C enough so they get sick a lot. Keep all that in mind before you eliminate every carb from your diet.

R21, there IS a pure cranberry juice on the market. Maybe not in typical groceries, IDK. I buy it. It's like $9-10 a quart and is unsweetened. I like it watered down.
Pasta should go first if you're trying to lose weight. Potatoes are also bad, and metabolize as sugar.

Diet soda is totally poison and makes you fatter because of the way the brain reacts to it. Google Aspertame and step away from the Diet Coke slowly.
Also, Frankenwheat and Frankencorn are in everything even chickens, pigs and cows thanks to Monsanto. Many think this is why the obesity epidemic started. They use these GMO grains to fatten up animals and it does the same to people. It's not your grandparent's wheat.
Fresh squeezed juice is good for you in moderation. If you want the fiber throw it in the blender with some water or ice

Potatoes are healthy as long as you don't load then up with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, etc.

For decades MD's have told patients that high cholesterol from fat create heart disease. Knowledgable doctors have always known carbs are the culprit.

I tried eliminating bread, potatoes, white rice, and pasta but I am on a (temporarily, I hope) budget and discovered that these are my staples that fill me up and keep me alive.
Does anyone know any low-cost alternatives that will give you that "full" feeling (and maybe tastes good as well)?

If rice is so unhealthy, why are Asians generally thin and likely to live into their 80s and 90s? Lots of food nazis in this thread. What's worse is, a lot of you idiots are contradicting food recommendations given by qualified nutritionists.

r35, by "qualified nutritionists" I hope you don't mean Registered Dieticians. They still preach 25-year-old ideas.
