A Dietitianís Confession: Why Iím Turning My Back on Whole Grains

Monday, January 27, 2014

"Oh if I had a dollar for every time I scoffed at someone going on a gluten-free diet because it was ďthe thingĒ to do. For people with celiac disease, eating wheat can be a matter of life and death; good health and bad. But for someone who gives wheat and baked goods up just because Elizabeth Hasselback said it was cool, ha!

And then I had to give up wheat."

    LOL. Are you guys picking on Becky? Or is it the other way around? ;)

    I was also a whole grain preacher. But on a lark, tried cutting out the grains and lost weight that I haven't been able to for decades despite hard exercise. I'm getting my blood test results together. But so far, my elevated blood pressure is now normal (110/80) at last doctor's visit.

    Forgive me, JERF... I had to hijack your link!
    I'll probably regret it, because I posted it *out in the open* on the Diet & Nutrition forum.

    pray for me
    LOL

    Loved the article. I believe that wheat, sugars including artificial sugars, and hormones/antibiotics for meat/poultry has caused the obesity epidemic. I do much better when I'm not eating anything that includes these three.
