I don't bring up this topic from a fat loss perspective because I have solved such issues for myself a long time ago. What I actually found was that I continued to lose fat and keep it off while keeping such foods in my diet, because calories were low enough, I didn't go hungry, and I felt good as opposed to feeling like crap from low blood sugar that which happens from a low carb diet. So it is safe to say that I have seen the proof with myself and others that the idea that grains make you fat is complete bolagna. But that doesn't mean that such foods are the best thing for you and/or they won't be bad for you. The answer to that question is what I am trying to figure out.
I have had symptoms of celiac disease, that which my mother has also suffered from and she had to start eating gluten free foods to solve her problems. For such reasons I became curious and started looking into the paleo diet because it eliminates foods such as grains. I always questioned when people said grains were bad for you with the possibility that such beliefs might be simply dogma. Because I didn't see any proof. Now I second question and I found a good article that actually gives some rational reasons why foods such as grains, potatoes, and legumes might be bad for you. Here is the link:
As I already mentioned, I really liked that article because it actually explained scientifically why certain foods might be bad for us, as opposed to the dogma I have heard from low carb advocates. I don't believe in the low carb dogma that demonizes foods such as grains all for the sake of justifying a reduced carb diet, moderate carbs work just fine for me. But if there are other health reasons why I should be concerned with such foods, I definitely want to know.
Any further comments would be appreciated. And I would also appreciate it if anyone had any good sources.
