    Do you think that plants were invented for animals to eat?

    Grains are seeds, ya know, how plants reproduce.

    Grains for humans to eat were just there. I don't know what they were thinking back than but the first human who ate grain would probably have been really hungry and tried something new.
    I think that he found out that he could eat it and felt very full by it so ate more when he was hungry…

    (I'm just guessing here but grain in a easy form of a lot of calories, so it's easy to feed a lot of people with it)
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

    Calories? Aren't that those little creatures that live in my closet and shrink my clothes at night?

    The "purpose" of grains is to pass grain genes into future generations. In other words, genes that build grains that pass their genes on to future generations survive, while those that don't, don't.

    It's not about purpose. It's about competition. As different groups of cells evolved they were either able to consume nutrients and multiple faster than the other cell groups could eat them or be never more.
    Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.

What is the purpose of grains in nature? Is it for birds to fly down and peck at and eat?
    Let me guess...American public education system, amirite?

    Well, fruit kinda was. But yeah.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    It's part of the ecosystem, it's purpose is to reproduce. Same as any other life form.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
    Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
    Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
    F/23/5'9"

    26lbs lost since cutting the crap.
