Got Whole Grains In Your Diet? It’s Time To Ditch Them For Good, Says Nutritionist

Filed under: Health — @ April 30, 2010

We often hear the media and so-called health “experts” talk about the NEED to consume what they describe as “healthy whole grains.” They say that sugar and refined carbohydrates are certainly unhealthy for you, but you really need to add in whole grains to your diet. But what if the truth is that grains are just as harmful to your weight and health as sugary, carby foods? That’s exactly what today’s podcast interview guest is attempting to educate people about who deal with unexplained weight gain and decline in their health despite eating the “right” diet they’ve been told is good for them.

In Episode 356 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from nutritionist Melissa Diane Smith, author of the book Going Against the Grain: How Reducing and Avoiding Grains Can Revitalize Your Health, who explains why whole grains need to be avoided and not encouraged as is commonplace in modern society. Hear Melissa discuss how her work at a popular health spa where she ate the recommended diet made her get fat and sick, what’s wrong with consuming grains, how grains became such a major part of the American diet, why we DON’T need to be consuming grains as is often promoted by health professionals, the anti-nutrient properties of grain products, delayed food allergies brought on by grains, the addictive nature of grains on the body, the harmfulness of genetically-modified foods (especially corn) and why they’re hard to identify, the grain-related sensitivities, why a gluten sensitivity doesn’t necessarily mean you have Celiac disease, the “Against The Grain” dietary guidelines compared with what the USDA is recommending, the challenges of eliminating grains from your diet and what you can do about it, why it’s important to replace whole grains with low-carb vegetables, how to purchase non-grain foods at the grocery store, why eating out grain-free isn’t such a big deal nowadays, how a vegetarian can give up grains (most are “grain”-arians!), the supplements that augment a grain-free diet, and why even kids should give up grains.
