Male Speaker: It's white bread view, I am talking white bread, white flour. Female Speaker: Yes and no.

You get a -- it goes into your stomach, your enzymes starts breaking it down immediately, you get a woosh of sugar in your blood etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

Male Speaker: So it's a choice. Female Speaker: It's a choice, right.
