grains are not a natural human food when looked at through the lens of evolutionary biology
- grains contain gluten
- grains cannot touch the nutrient density of fruit/veg
- grains contain anti nutrients
- grains inhibit nutrient absorption
- grains produce systemic inflammation in the body in some people.
- grains are acidic and leech calcium to buffer the acidity
- people usually drop allot of fat when cutting grains from there diet.
- people often report more aches and pains when returning to grains after cutting them.”

Sounds crazy I know, thought so myself then cut them for 3 months, the clincher was when I ate some after being off them and how I felt. Obviously you can eat grains and be healthy everybody is different, but if you have a really hard time losing weight try dropping them and replacing those carbs with whole fruit and vegetables and see what happens to you body composition and cholesterol level as well.

Cheers

Definately. I hadn't had a single grain in 3 weeks before Easter, the I figured hey its been 3 weeks, and 1 day won't be that big a deal in that period. Had bread, pasta and some cake.

Its Tuesday morning now and I still feel terrible.

Well in that case I'll keep eating them. Seriously, as a vegetarian it's hard enough to get good food besides vegetables and fruit, and hearing that refraining from grains and then eating them again is painful just makes me want to keep a steady diet of grains to avoid the discomfort.
