Yeah, I know, whole grains--and wheat in particular--are not as great as we thought they were. We do still calories and we need the fiber...
I try to share whatever I can so we can all learn what we each need to know... and I LOVE Dr. Oz, but there are a lot of thing that won't work for me because of my special combination of needs. We're all unique... and he always says to listen too to our medical team for that reason, since he can't know everything about everyone.
I have kidney disease and the foods we've been seeing in these articles are not just high in fiber, they are high in a lot of minerals that I have to limit--but even more so are protein sources, both animal and vegetable. That rules out any but the smallest servings of whole grains, and no more than 70 grams of ANY kind of protein... that's a hard one, I'm having trouble with right now... the calories have got to come from SOMEWHERE, y'know? LOL
Plus, I had colon cancer and part of my post-surgical treatment--for the rest of my life-- is a high fiber diet, a MINIMUM of 25 grams, 35 is better. Since other things, including vegetables, have to be limited, it makes life interesting, trying to work out what's best... and I take a fiber supplement every day. The important thing is learning as much as we can about all the possibilities for ourselves, and threading our way through the mass of information to find the best solutions for ourselves as individuals. A real creative endeavor sometimes! LOL
Thanks for sharing... I really liked the video!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steadfast... and that works too! LOL
Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called the PRESENT!
