    Those of you who disagree with her message; might want to comment on this youtube vid:

    The Benefits Of Whole Grains - YouTube

    I was deceived for 30 years by this "eat more gmo wheat, noodles; bread, enriched flour, bagels, dough, glycemic spiking , insulin raising; bad science message. Hello type 2 diabetes.

    She looks unhealthy too.

    So much for "healthy whole grains". What a crock.
    Starting Weight: 197.5
    Current Weight: 123
    Lost 75# eating low carb (20-40 g) and then MDA primal low carb. Tried many other options but only LC helped me lose weight and improve health. Now at a good weight, I find my body can tolerate a few more carbs but rarely go over 100 g.

    GUISE! Did you know cereal grains are gains?!

    Ugh.

    Also, I like how all the grains EXCEPT wheat were still whole. Wheat was bread. Sand-witch bread.

    Yes? I'm guessing that means it is "wheat" bread, what with the caramel colouring in it.

    EDIT: Oh I get what you are saying. What I meant was that of all the grains she displayed, only wheat was turned into something else. Oat was oats, barley was barley, and wheat was bagels and bread and stuff. If that makes sense.

    I swear the same people who hold stock in corporate grain milling operations must also own stock in diabetes meds

    I actually made a joke about that years ago, about taking money and investing in coke, pepsi and insulin companies.
