And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

FWIW I wear VFFs, too. I like to follow fashion sometimes.
As far as bread goes, did you see Mark's interview with Dr. Eenfeldt, particularly the part about grains? He's very adamant and won't budge on his position against grains. Like a lot of us, he had no celiac and honestly never thought he had an issue with grains. Until he went without them and discovered what it felt like to be truly healthy. If you haven't seen his interview, you should check it out. Mark is such an even-keeled, reasonable, happy, likable guy.

Tomorrow we go to pediatric G.I. specialist to see how extensive the issue is.
If you like grains fine... that's up to you entirely. But if you suggest it is "dangerous" to not eat grains, then you're treading in murky waters. I think the original question was well and truly answered by the poster many pages ago who linked to Mark's article on the subject.
Also being an ex-vegetarian is fine. There are lots of ex-vegetarians/vegans here (including me).
Now I can understand why people following conventional wisdom get confused as to "why grains are bad" because they're being taught that not only are grains wholesome and healthy BUT that they should make up the majority of a person's diet! It can take someone awhile to get their head around the idea that grains are not just unnecessary but they're also bad for you. Many people are gluten intolerant so what do they get told to do? Just get gluten free grain substitutes! It's like... they're not even presented with another option (that of just NEVER EATING GRAIN AGAIN EVER). Because grain is a FOOD GROUP and all!
But I think most people who find themselves on this forum have at least read enough about primal/paleo to have some idea as to why grains are best avoided.
