    Great blog! You will find that the myth "anything in moderation" and high carb/low fat eating are added to the list of misnomers we have been taught through the years. If you choose to research Wheat Belly, and I was also advise Paleo, you will find many references that have proven we have been misguided.

    Best wishes to you on your continued success! emoticon
