    what about corn?

    Primal Fuel
    Is corn ok the night before a race when I want to get some carbs? I've been doing sweet potato, but wondering if corn would good too?

    Absolutely not. You should read the primal blueprint, it talks about how grains are bad and corn is a grain. If you want more info I can break it down for you, but seriously just eat sweet potatoes or some high quality fruit.

    No, it's a grain.
    Remember, you are unique just like everybody else.

    Really, what kind of mold? Are you talking about fresh sweet corn on the cob or corn when actually used as a grain?
    To me these two things are completely different foods. I avoid corn for the most part but in the summer I do eat corn on the cob fresh from the farmers market. I've never seen mold on it and YES, I've eaten it raw many, many times.
    To the OP, I say go for it. But only if it's fresh, local corn. Seriously, it won't hurt you.

    aflatoxins are found mostly in grains (yes, corn is a grain). just because you can't see the mold doesn't mean it doesn't exist within your produce. i believe fresh corn is a bit better in terms of contamination. google aflatoxins and corn. apparently it's universally contaminated. just figured i'd give ya a heads up. if someone is suffering from a fungal condition of any sort i would suggest skipping the corn.
