Why Wheat Should NOT Be Included In Your Everyday Diet:

Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode I’m sharing 4 reasons why you should give up wheat.

Alright, I’m often asked, Brad why are you telling me not to eat wheat.

I mean the government’s food pyramid says that 99.53% of our calories should come from wheat.

OK, first off, I’m exaggerating a bit. The government doesn’t recommend 99.53% of you calories from wheat.

It’s probably more like 93%.

And I’m not saying that everyone should 100% give up wheat…

Unless you’re suffering from celiac disease…than say bye bye to wheat forever.

But I am saying if you’re looking to lose weight, improve your health, and Live Lean 365 days a year…

Wheat should not be a regular ingredient in your everyday diet.

In other words, safe your wheat consumption for your cheat meal.

PIZZA!

Here are the 4 reasons why you should give up wheat:

#1. Gluten

Gluten is a protein found in wheat that can be difficult for most people to digest.
I mean I don’t even feed my dog wheat.

So if you have a suspicion that you have a gluten intolerance or sensitivy, it’s best to avoid it on the daily.

In fact, there may be evidence showing that humans have never had the proper stomach enzymes to break down gluten and properly digest it.

Which leads me into #2.

#2. This isn’t your great grandma’s wheat

Surprised and amazed

What I mean by this is over the last 100 years or so, wheat has been genetically engineered.

Today’s wheat has over 3-4 times as much gluten than your great grandma Ethel’s wheat.

This is possibly why cases of people with gluten sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years.

#3. Wheat doesn’t have as much fiber as you think

The recommended daily amount of fiber for men is approximately 35g and 25g for women.

Many people are brainwashed into thinking wheat products, like bread, provide most of this fiber.

But here’s the thing.

A typical piece of whole wheat bread only contains 1.1g of fiber. With white bread coming in at 0.8g of fiber.

So you’d have to eat a lot of bread to hit that 35g of fiber goal.

Oh you’d like that wouldn’t ya.

Now compare that to nature’s source of fiber…fruit and vegetables.

In just one cup of raspberries, there’s approximately 8g of fiber. That’s 8 times more than whole wheat bread.

There’s also 5 times more fiber in one cup of broccoli than whole wheat bread.

If you want fiber. Fruits and vegetables is where it’s at.

#4. Wheat Turns On Your Fat Storing Switch

Most people think wheat doesn’t affect blood sugar levels as much as white bread because it’s higher in fiber.
But as we saw in the previous example, the difference in fiber is not much at all.
Also wheat bread is only slightly lower on the glycemic index than white bread is.
The glycemic index is just a value assigned to foods based on how quickly they cause increases in blood sugar levels.
So when your blood sugar spikes, the fat storing hormone insulin is secreted to remove the sugar from your blood, and in many cases, store it in your fat cells.
In other words, wheat can have the same effect on blood sugar as table sugar!
Not good.
So to wrap this up guys, once again, this is not to say you should never have wheat again.
I just want to clear up the misconception that wheat should not be apart of an everyday healthy diet.
Stick to wheat consumption during your cheat meal.
PIZZA.
