    JoanieL, I read your story about how you got started in primal over on Odds and Ends. That shit was hilarious, I was cracking up! You're pretty funny.

          The genetic classification of einkorn wheat is Triticum monococcum, Einkorn wheat has 14 chromosomes while modern wheats have 42 (Friendly to the body’s digestive system)

            Thank you, Marissa.

            Terry H, a google search of butt flora doesn't reveal much science, but it does reveal that some people have to live their lives with the name Flora Butt. That makes me sad. *snort*

            Wheat is for livestock. I have no hooves, therefore I don't eat wheat.

              Oh and you probably cant consume grains because you stopped eating them entirely so your gut flora changed. Its not magic like Robb Wolf claims. Also your metabolism is probably low from being VLC so you are unable to digest properly.
              Low carb is very different from not eating grains....sigh.

                There is a silver lining: you actually know what hurts you in a very direct way. I can have anything as long as I cooked it myself, and there is no horrid rancid oils/too much fat, and I will feel just fine. The only ways the wicked ways the grains and sugars manifest for me is that they ever so subtly rise my appetite, and if I give in, I grow overweight.

                  Funny I was having a discussion with a grainaterian and they posted a study The importance of promoting a whole grain foo... [J Am Coll Nutr. 2002] - PubMed - NCBI that showed 100g of grains has the same nutrition as 100g of veg so they must be good for you.
                  When you look at the calorie content
                  100g bulgar wheat = 360 cal
                  100g tomatoes = 18 cal
                  I know other veg don't fare as well but it does mean veg is 10-20x more nutritious than grains BUT it also means bulgar wheat has only 30 cal less than table sugar per 100g.

                      Precisely.....go live on OJ and skim milk, french toast, and pancakes if you like....seems to work great for soooooo many people. Seriously, I hear some Peatophiles even have blogs now! Why not post nonsense there where it will be less conspicuous as blatant sewage spewed onto a page?

                      The fact of the matter is the current standard of care for someone with a suspected gluten intolerance is to eliminate gluten and monitor symptoms. This is because current testing standards are not yet sensitive or accurate enough to verify such intolerance. Of course they are working on it, but for the time being elimination is it. Considering the empty calories its no real loss.

                        Unlike primal right. Every other person who switches to primal has to start a blog, write a ebook and clog facebook with ridiculous pictures of their gluten free, sugar free, grain free, sad sad meals.

                        Listen people, wheat is not the devil, sugar is not the devil, no one food group is inherently unhealthy. This isnt a private party and Mark Sisson is not the chosen one. Its this elitist, close minded attitude that makes the paleo community look so ridiculous. You make fun of vegans but you are no better. You would think that if someone was on a search for health they they would be interested in all views.

                        And no im not a Peatarian but he is easily one of the smartest guys on the internet when it comes to hormones, metabolism and how nutrients effect these things. If you were smart, you would read what he has to say.

                          Sorry, Ray Peat is not the chosen one. You should read what Mark Sisson has to say. He's one the smartest guys on the internet.

                          See what I did there?
