How To Quit Grains "What, then, is the point to all this grain madness? Is there a good reason for anyone (with access to meat, fruit, and vegetables, that is) to rely on cereal grains for a significant portion of their caloric intake?
The answer is unequivocally, undeniably no. We do not need grains to survive, let alone thrive. In fact, they are naturally selected to ward off pests, whether they be insects or hominids. I suggest we take the hint and stop eating them."—Mark Sisson, Why Grains Are Unhealthy—
When we're asked about nutrition, eating to improve performance or losing weight, invariably the conversation turns to eliminating grains from the diet. This is often met with a blank stare. Then we use terms more recognized: eliminate bread, pasta and rice.
The formerly blank stare usually turns into a glare of white hot anger. Sometimes people become emotionally attached to food. What the hell am I supposed to eat?
One friend was about to come over his desk to strangle me when I suggested he stop eating bagels. A year later his doctor ordered him to stop eating bagels. Our friend was diagnosed with diabetes. We're not suggesting that the bagels caused the diabetes, but our friend's diet consisted of, like many Americans, mostly bread, pasta and rice with a little meat. Veggies and fruit are consumed occassionally.
Allow us to clear up a few misconceptions: Bread is bread whether it is "healthy" whole wheat or some other nicely marketed processed food. Rice cakes are NOT a healthy snack. Oatmeal is grain. "Healthy" brown rice is still rice–a grain.
