    Surviving on bread alone

    Primal Fuel
    is not impossible according to a professor of human nutrition at the University of Sydney in today's Sydney Morning Hearald:

    Professor of human nutrition at the University of Sydney Jennie Brand-Miller said breads that use Australian flour were reasonably high quality sources of nutrients.

    That is because Australian wheat is hard, which means that, when it is milled, a part called the aleurone layer - which is rich in nutrients - is not removed, she said.

    "I can't show you facts on paper, you're not going to find a separate nutritional analysis of white bread from a supermarket versus white bread that comes in a branded packet.

    "They will all be made with Australian wheat.

    "Some difference may be the salt content.

    "I think one of the things that would distinguish those cheap breads is the extent to which they've made them very salty.

    "That probably increases the likelihood that people will buy them, but then some of the supermarkets are making an attempt to reduce the salt content of products."

    Professor Brand-Miller said choosing wholemeal, which is any bread with the germ and bran left in it, is the healthiest choice.

    Wholemeal breads have a huge range of B vitamins including thiamine, which can protect the nervous system and brain, she said.

    "Basically a wholegrain with a bran intact and the germ is giving you the full spectrum of vitamins except from vitamin C.

    "If people ate just bread and they supplemented that with a bit of vitamin C, they probably wouldn't need any other food."

    I am sure some people can thrive on ancient wheat. But our current wheat sucks. And while I think primal is awesome, I know that exceptions are the rules in nature.

    Even Taubes speaks of native cultures in North America that grew hard wheat, stone ground, that thrived until modern diets took hold.
    Original wt: 375, Current, 246
    Total weight lost, 130 pounds (Took 2 years)
    Weight lost first week of low carb, 7.1 pounds
    Current: Deadlift 450, Bench 255, Squat 365, Run 4 miles daily, boxing and conditioning work
    Goals: Deadlift 502 (5 plates a side with bar), Bench 312 (3 plates/bar) squat 402 (4 plates/bar), run 10 miles, bw 200 lbs
    Cows have 4 stomachs to make grass digestible, we have one stomach to make cows digestible, and with that, neither can eat grain and become healthy!

    Dude, even the Bible says Man cannot thrive on bread alone.
    Old news, really.

    You all seem to have missed the point. Just amazed that a professor of nutrition at a university of good standing could believe such a thing

    Kind of as silly as using the bible to make an argument

    I read the opening lines of the professor's quote as "Australian professor tries to sell more Australian wheat". No suspicious motives there, I'm sure.
