Here's a video that I like a lot that describes how it's not fat that causes obesity but sugars, even the sugars that enter our bodies from grains, but especially high fructose corn syrup
Check this out!

the longer version that Sean mentions is also very good and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in body chemistry--very fascinating

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

to answer NONNAJEANIE's question:
I think the video that has been mentioned is the Dr. Oz TV series about carb addiction.
Here's a link to the videos:

Upon further inspection... I see they have completely omitted fats, oils, nuts and seeds. What's that about? And OH! My mistake. 6-11 servings of grain are recommended daily. Gosh! That's a LOT of PIG food! lol
Did you see the comment from Dr. Andrew Weil? lol Right on DOC!

This is all new information to me -- I have always loved and enjoyed using whole wheat and whole grain bread for sandwiches. I'm listening and open to new information - maybe this is the beginning of a nutrition makeover for me!

Thanks - Jeanie emoticon

Yeah. The pyramid seems topsy-turvy. I like to eat mostly veggies, then protein and dairy, then healthy fats, nuts and fruit. Grain, for me, is an OCCASIONAL gluten-free variety such as GF oats or brown rice. I also like buckwheat pancakes (buckwheat is actually a seed, but it is also high in carb/starch). I maybe have 2-3 servings per month.

I agree, i never did understand why there were so many grain servings I thought there should be more veggie servings.

I believe that we all generally eat way too much grain. I don't eat ANY grain, but I would recommend that most people at least cut down to 2 servings per day. The FIBRE that is in whole grains is NOT the fibre that you want to eat. It blocks other nutrients from being absorbed by the body. We need to get fibre from fruits, veggie, nuts and beans mostly (like ANI said).
My recommendation: If you must eat grain, eat no more than 2 servings per day. Eat grain such as rolled or steel cut oats, brown rice or quinoa or prepare fermented or sprouted grain dishes.
6-7 servings per day is WAY too much as outlined in the FOOD PYRAMID.
Most grain contains lectins, phytates and gluten. Here is a great article that talks about the ANTInutrients in grains.
We really don't need grain. There is NOTHING in grain that our bodies need that can't be found in other foods.

I believe DS9KIE is right. There are many good sources of good fiber and whole grains are just one of them. If you have any issues with weight gain, insulin resistance, or anything in that ballpark then seriously reducing all grains is a plus for you. You can get good fiber in fresh veggies especially the dark green leafy ones which will supply many of the nutrients your body needs. Also beans are a good source. One of the best sources is whole coconut. Also fruits are a good source especially apples, jicama, pears. But if, as I said, and blood sugar issues are lurking in your body then you want to limit the amount of sugary fruits; you don't want to over-do them.

DEFINITELY work on getting ALL refined grain products out of your diet if you want to lose weight and get healthy. If you can't seem to stop eating pastas and breads then absolutely stick to 100% whole grain and try to cut down. Read the ingredient list on the packages to be sure; don't trust what is said on the rest of the package.

Don't mind me, I've always got a pocketful of mostly unasked for information!

I think you are okay on those carbs, friend, because you need that fiber too! Which video were you referring to? I think I should watch it too!

Have a super day!!

I consider myself a carb addict because if it's a protein, I automatically try to put it between two slices of bread and if it's a sauce I try and put it over brown rice... Now that I've added my two cents worth I guess I better try and watch the video. Have a great day. emoticon
