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!
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
