I want to eat your GRAINS!!!

Now seriously, we are obviously not vegetarian zombies and there is lots of evidence out there that says we (non-vegetarian zombie humans) should not eat grains.

http://blog.wellnessfx.com/2012/09/13/the-grains-debate-how-good-for-you-are-they-really/

Google the subject, there is a lot of info out there.

I have been grain free for 6 weeks now and I feel great! I felt like an old man prior to starting this keto diet. I was aching and sore in place that I didn’t even know I had places. Maybe it’s the lack of grains, maybe its the increase in good ol' fat.

What are your thoughts/experiences on the consumption of grains?

grains, fats, whichever. Both provide calories and energy. We can live without grains but we can't live without both. Fats are required for brain function. I personally see benefit in eating grains at breakfast time (100% proven to help control colesterol levels, and a good source of morning carbs).

Right now I'm doing my best to avoid grains, or should I say "...arghhh... graaaainzzz..." Smile For me, at least, going low-carb seems to be the most successful way to lose weight. Best of all, I find I'm not getting the dreaded late-afternoon energy crash that really *does* make me feel like a brain-dead zombie!

I have no grain intolerance or celiac disease, so I eat them in moderation when I feel like having them. It's never been a problem. Haven't noticed any differences without them in my diet either.

My joke for this was always that grains at breakfat lowered colesterol levels because you were eating them instead of eggs, cheese and bacon. haha But your right, studies have proven what you are saying is correct.

On my ketogenic diet, bacon is encouraged. Bacon wrapped asparagus is my favorite.... yummmm

Here is a list of links that discuss grains effects on the human body:

I guess I should put an "after" picture up there for people who don't know me personally. Without one, the "before" picture only shows a fat guy ... with no indication that he ever changed. LOL

BTW, this graph below my name is not accurate. I just changed from paleo to LCHF on this site, so it shows what I've lost since the change.

I was 185# in April 2009. I went very low carb, and lost 30# in six months.

As you can see, I've kept it off for four years now (fluctuating up and down a little, but staying about the same overall).

My new (paleo) doctor tells me I should lose more weight, so I'm watching things pretty closely now instead of just assuming I'm following my diet correctly.
