I see where you're coming from, but if it wasn't for paleo I would never have known that grains where causing me issues.
Every dr. I ever spoke to said I had IBS and all I could do was avoid the trigger foods and take meds.
Thing was the trigger foods were good foods, like garlic, some veggies, etc and not anything made from grains, so I carried on eating healthy whole grains, bran flakes and other cereals.
It wasn't until I read about about paleo that I dropped the grains, and what do ya know? Within a few days my IBS was clearing up.
Will it kill me if I eat a plate of pasta, of course not. But it can have assorted ill affects, none of which I enjoy. So I'll stick with telling people I can't eat grains thanks.
Question for you, jimhensen, some of your posts (not particularly this one funnily enough) have me wondering, do you follow the primal blueprint or other paleo dietary guidelines?
