    I eat a little but not eat much fruit. Since fructose is the key to turning on the fat storage switch, I usually choose fruits low in fructose. Most of my starchy carbs come from tubers like baked white potatoes since eat out most days. I'd prefer baked sweet potatoes but no restaurants around here offers them. So the later is mostly eaten at home. Right up with there non-starchy veggies. I eat a lot of salads, broccoli, and cabbage. I don't eat much legumes, including green beans and peas. I might eat a few corn chips and a little rice at a Mexican restaurant.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    it's not hard to reconcile the pyramid with carb-dense foods.
    What did you pour a 1/4 cup of honey on?

    perhaps you should do more reseach about wheat, as its nothing even near its original state. Also when whole grains are pulverized they have even more of an effect on blood glucose. But hey, I'm not knocking you. A lot of people on eatcleanlifthard.com eat whole wheat bread and they look great. You are obviously seeing good results. But this still is a paleo diet forum

    perhaps a 30 day experiment for you? lol but most people do best with whole oats or rice as they are the least offensive. also most bread nowadays contains soy which is dangerous unless your getting it from someone who makes fresh bread. but anyways different people tolerate different things

    True whole oats take 40 minutes to cook by the way. Anything less than that are refined oats.

    I used to cook my steel cut oats for only 10 minutes because I loved the hardness. Bad?
