I guess it's my personal preference to eat more nutritious food then......I have not once said that you're not better off eating "more nutritious" food. I'm saying it comes down to personal preference.
Yes, I agree that the dose makes the poison. A couple of months ago we had people over for lunch and they brought over a chocolatey cake thing for dessert. And we ate it. It was delicious.If someone wants to eat grains, for whatever reason, then they can definitely be part of a healthy diet. McDonalds.... This is where everyone disagrees with me.
Again, it's all dose-specific, and it's all about context. For example, of course sugar is bad for you if you consume it in excess. But is sugar toxic in small amounts among a balanced diet? Absolutely not (sorry Dr. Lustig). So I'm going to keep saying it: it comes down to the overall context of the diet, and in my opinion, grains are not evil in every situation.
I also agree with you that some of the fears of wheat are likely incorrect (I still think that anti-oxidants are good for you, for example).
