    Re: Only Whole Wheat???

    A person who smokes a package of cigarettes a day doesn't feel completely fine. They have mucous in their throats, cough, get more colds etc. I eat wheat every day and I am in GREAT health. I have NO stomach problems, rarely get sick, my full blood work that I get done every 6 months always comes back perfect, I have lots of energy, I'm not constipation, bloated or ever get diarrhea, I don't get yeast infections, or any type of infections, my skin is perfect, my eyesight is great, my nails are healthy....the list goes on and on. I'm the picture of health and I EAT WHEAT. I totally realized that there are many individuals who are not able to tolerate wheat, but at this moment, I am not one of them.

    Re: Only Whole Wheat???

    I read an article that says one of the primary causes of Addison's disease is gluten intolerance. Like I said, you may feel healthy, but if you're eating wheat all the time, there are changes in your body happening without you feeling it. I learned the hard way, I felt good until I started getting severe anxiety attacks out of nowhere. I was happy, hardworking, and loved life until that day. I found that gluten caused all of this as well as having GI infections. Most health problems are digestive related, regardless of symptoms..

    I'm glad you enjoy the discussion. That is what this board is all about. There are two sides to every story and it's good for people to hear both.

    And Thomas, I have read A LOT of research on Addison's disease. I actually do talks at medical schools on the topic and I have never found any research that suggests that primary Addison's disease is caused by gluten intolerance. I realize that there must be info out there about this because I have heard people talk about this, but it is purely testimonial and not science/evidence-based.

    TDOT,

    What heritage do you have if you don't mind me asking? That's pretty cool that you speak on Addison's, but have you determined your cause of it yet. I know of a lab who specializes in adrenal insuffiency. I urge you to keep an open mind on this..There are causes for every single condition or disease or symptoms, with the number 1 underlying cause being gluten and/or GI infections. It is based on science.. It only makes sense since grains have only been in your diet for 10,0000 to 20,000 years compared to our millions of years of life on this planet. We simply haven't adapted to eating wheat yet, it sucks cuz I grew up on it and loved it. I would bet my life on it that if you found out through diagnostic testing what's causing your disease, you wouldn't need meds any longer.

    Re: Only Whole Wheat???

    I was under the impression that a person should eat whole wheat for there health. If someone cuts out wheat what can they eat to still have a nutritionally sound diet? Avoiding grains like that sounds like the Adkins diet which has been proven to be unhealthy. I don't believe in cutting out any food group. Everything in moderation.

    Re: Only Whole Wheat???

    hmm we are not avoiding grains at all.. its easy to replace wheat.. Try Quinoa bread, or buckwheat bread, Millet bread, Rice bread, Corn bread.. you can also have tapioca muffins, or yummy corn muffins, the list goes on and, on.. I think that this is the way for variety in your diet.. not loading yourself with WHEAT WHEAT WHEAT everything.. People have wheat for breakfast, wheat for snack, wheat for lunch, wheat for snack, wheat for supper, wheat for late night snack again.. DUH!! no wonder people are sick.. most of them are anyway.

    Re: Only Whole Wheat???

    I don't know who's eating that much wheat. I have a hard time getting my family to eat whole wheat. They would rather have white pasta which is bad. When I go and buy real whole wheat bread they will not eat it. I also buy whole wheat pasta and cannot get them to eat it. They don't like the texture and taste. I really don't think a lot of people are eating that much wheat like you say. It's the processed flour people eat mostly and that is bad for you. So do you disagree with the new food pyramid guide that the US goverment came out with? It says we need whole wheat every day. You will never get me to believe that whole wheat is bad. It's the processed flour, sugar etc... that's bad.

    "sorry but i eat with my brain, not with my mouth.."


    Hey that is a good one. I'll remember to use it the next time someone tries to tell me whole wheat is bad for me.

    It's the processed wheat that people are consuming. The white flour which is made from wheat but is processed down to a level where it becomes unhealthy. The other grains are not bad. As long as something is whole grain then it is good. Even pop corn is considered a whole grain and considered healthy as long as it's not slathered in butter and salt. I was actually surprised when I read that one but I had a boss who had diabetes and she could not eat the processed grains anymore but popcorn she could and whole wheat bread and oatmeal but not processed instant oatmeal. So whole grain is good no matter what grain. Wheat, corn etc.... and the others you listed also. Wheat is healthy as long as it's in a whole grain form.
