Live Lean NATION!!
Do you want the truth about whole grains?
YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!! Or maybe you can’¦lets find out by watching today’s episode of Live Lean TV.
Unfortunately this is what people don’t get. And it’s not your fault.
The food marketers and their best friends… the government…are at fault because these “trusted” authorities are feeding you crap via food and misinformation!
First lets state the obvious. We all know PROCESSED grains are bad.
These grains are essentially empty calories containing little to no fiber or any other nutritional value.
Reality check. Those nutrients are synthetic meaning very little if any are actually absorbed by the body. In other words, it’s a waste.
Processed grains are also high on the glycemic index meaning they raise your blood sugar quickly. Not good. And without getting into too much detail, this quick rise in blood sugar begins the fat storing process as well as a whole load of other issues including:
– CRAZY energy fluctuations.
– Even CRAZIER food cravings.
– And my FAVORITE, the mood swings.
According to your always trustworthy government…the answer is yes.
According to anyone living lean…the answer is hell no!
Unlike vegetables and fruit… you can’t just go pick a stalk of wheat and eat it.
“Whole” grains are first processed to be eaten. So by definition it’s really not “whole” at all.
In fact whole grain flour is not much better for you than regular flour.
Whole grain bread contains very little fiber. Some only contain 1-2 grams which is close to the same amount as white bread.
Compare that to 8 grams of fiber in a cup of raspberries or 5 grams in a cup of broccoli.
Vegetables and fruit are the real high fiber foods.
Most people think whole grains don’t effect your blood sugar levels because they’re high in fiber (but this is not true as we just saw).
In fact, wheat influences blood sugar the same way as table sugar!
And when you look at the glycemic index whole grain pasta is only a few points lower than white pasta. So don’t think you’re doing you belt size any favors by going whole grain vs. white!!
Oats, wheat (which includes gluten), and spelt are the most common food allergens. Gluten in particular causes a lot of problems for a lot of people. I’m talking issues with digestion, autoimmune, and neurological disorders.
Not only this, but if you do have allergens to grains and you’re still eating them, you’re putting stress on the body which then releases the stress hormone cortisol (also known as the belly fat storing hormone).
And I didn’t even talk about today’s wheat being genetically modified…I’ll save that for another episode. So let me wrap this up by saying this…
There is no physiological need for grains in the human diet.
So by now I’m sure you’re all asking…BRAD what can I eat then?
