    My stomach doesn't like grains anymore. They cause nausea. So no, I don't.

    I prefer not to get the shnits. That's the noticeable difference for me. Back when I at the standard american diet...I always had gas and shnits, or it was common, just thought it was normal. If you're still losing weight and you don't have bowel issues, keep doing what you're doing. It doesn't sound like you're eating a whole bunch of grains. There is the argument in regard to inflammation, leaky gut, etc, caused by grains.

    No I don't. I don't seem to have any strong physical reaction, but I know if I reintroduced them even slightly, I'll gradually eat more and more. Since I don't particularly miss them, it's not a hardship.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    I occasionally eat them. I try to stick with a gluten-free lifestyle mostly so the grains I eat would be rice and corn. I don't seem to have a strong reaction, but over time if I start to eat a lot of wheat or gluten, my joints start to get achy and I feel pretty crappy and run down.

    I ate a hamburger bun and gained 1.5 pounds literally overnight (I'm guessing inflamation or something). Not to mention lots of gas.

    So... no, I don't eat grains anymore. I never realized what a huge impact they had on my body because that was "normal" for me. Now I'm happy with "healthy" and don't want to go back to "normal" again.

    White rice is OK if you are losing. Most of us do some sushi. You only have to do 80% to get the benefits of primal. But wheat would be one of the most important foods to ditch.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Not if I can help it. But sushi makes it hard. Sashimi was great last night, though.

    It would make about three Differents, depending on your body's sensitivities.

    1. Grains tend to leech minerals from your body, leading to osteoporosis and heart problems, etc.
    2. Wheat tends to contribute to leaky gut syndrome.
    3. Gluten allergies.

    I avoid bread and pasta, but I will not bat an eye at white rice since it's pretty innocuous. You sound like a young guy which means you have a few years left on your first class metabolic ticket, but once you approach 30, that stuff will catch up with you.

    Rice is one of those borderline deals.

    I eat it occasionally when I have sushi.

    VERY rarely I'll have a piece of cake or a cupcake, but it's not regular by any stretch.
