The higher the GI number the higher the insulin response and vice versa. Its also true that you can lower the GI of a meal by adding fats and proteins or even things like lemon juice/vinegar, thus lowering the total insulin response. If you can lower the insulin response/oxidation from the meal then why should whole grains be excluded? Their insulin response can be dropped, and they contain good amounts of some nutrients along with the dietary fiber. A diet with a moderate amount of whole grains has no real adverse effects; only a diet with a high amount of grains can show the negative effects of antinutrients. So if its eaten in moderate amounts and paired up with fat and protein at meals to curve the insulin response; Then why are whole grains really that bad?
