  • People who eat more whole grains tend to weigh less than those who don't...

    Funny, I don't FEEL any heavier...
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

      It's based on the assumption that everybody eats grains. The people who eat whole grains would weigh less than the people who eat simple carbs like white bread etc.

        But do they weigh less because of the kind of grain they eat or because people who eat whole grains tend to be more health conscious otherwise?

          The latter. This is similar to the studies that state those who eat breakfast are healthier. It's a simple correlation; basically those who eat breakfast are doing so because they're trying to be "healthy" and therefore weigh less than the average person who skips breakfast. Similar logical fallacy here.

            I recently read an article from 2008 to that affect, well it was whole grain over refined grain actually. They needed a 3rd study group of no grains, but it was funded in part by The General Mills Bell Institute of Health and Human Nutrition. hmmmm

              Correlation does not equal causation.

                Shouldn't this be in the "funny CW moments" thread?!?
                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  People who are babies tend to weigh less than people who are adults.

                    Do you have a study to back that up, or is that just opinion? (teehee)
