"In addition to ravaging your gut, grains elevate your blood sugar and cause your body to store fat, not burn it. How do you fatten a cow? Feed it grains. How do you fatten a human? Feed it grains."
"Despite what conventional wisdom tells you, grains are far less nutritious than vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and animal foods.
Do whole grains contain nutrients? Technically, yes, grains contain some nutrients. But due to the presence of anti-nutrients and enzyme inhibitors, your body cannot adequately absorb them, rendering them essentially useless. So no, grains do not contain bioavailable nutrition like vegetables and fruits do." - Abel James, author of 'The Wild Diet'
