    I know I'm getting old, and short term memory and all, but didn't we just do this?

    I in your grain thread there were plenty of post showing how bad grains were not big studies but they are there.

    You still have not posted one study that shows that eating tasteless, nutritionally deficient grains is better than avoiding them.
    No jim? You still going to try and maintain your pathetic lies?

    I don't eat wheat, but if you feel good and are heatlhy, I see no problem with it.

    The French and Italians eat plenty of wheat and are fine. Just eat it around a whole food diet with lots of healthy meats, fruits, and vegetables.

    Actually they don't and when they do it is full of fat.

    To the OP - keep in mind that there is not very much modern data supporting this way of eating. We can piece together bits and parts of studies, but the simple fact is that science is very slow and is quite political. So the people here and by and large tried what the experts have told them and found it less than ideal. We then go on to try things that are out in front of the current science.

    Slowly but surely science follows behind these things. You are seeing a bit of a change on the hard core low fat recommendations of the 90's. It's still a high grain world, but lower sugar is making headway as well.

    The people here aren't willing to wait for the studies proving this way is better. Mostly we try things on our bodies and go with what works.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Don't know if there's any significant difference but I ate white pasta not whole wheat pasta, but anyway I had a terrible night - excessive flatulence, stomach ache, palpitations and some sort of stinging all over my body - with all these studies that support and reject the consumption of wheat seems the best one can do is listen to the body and test through trial and error, and completely avoid if benefits arise from these - I mean for 20 years I too ate wheat as a staple and did fine by it and I believe it'll be impossible to avoid food with wheat/gluten for the next 70 years so I might keep on experimenting.

    There's context and 'shades of grey'. Not all foods can be lumped into a "poison" or "essential superfood" category. Wheat, seafood, eggs, nuts, milk etc all have their benefits yet can also be potentially problematic for a small percentage. Are all these foods necessary? No. Can their nutrients be obtained elsewhere? Sure. Can you find evidence of their health benefits? yes. Are they're health benefits overrated by some? Can you find evidence they can be problematic for some? yes.
    Can you find healthy populations that thrive consuming a lot of these foods? Sure. Some of the most healthy and disease free cultures weston price studied consumed large amounts of foods people put into the "poison" category. So I think the only way you can know what works for YOU is through experimentation. If you eliminated every food that Macdougall, cordain, Campbell, davis, CW etc told you was bad you wouldn't have any food options left at all.
