I've been wondering how healthy is a whole grain diet? On one side it seems great for teeth and gums problems on the other hand I read in t contains substances that can prevent the absorption of iron and other minerals. Whole grains are surely more tasty than refined ones and they do seem to stop cravings for unhealthy and sugary food along with bringing a feeling of well being. You see experts saying this is what you should do and others saying you should not do it at all.

Site member Robert always claims that grain was designed for birds and not humans. Nature is ingenious and I think that if grains were designed for humans they would be presented in such a way that would make them easy to harvest and consume. As it stands this is not really the case in fact the opposite is true. Have you read anything by Dr Weston Price?

On youtube there are some 'Low Carb Experts', search for them. They give seminars on the most commen things about grains and sugers. moslty one hour per session. This could be very interesting.

Do not take everything for granted. Smell for instance.

Thank you David and Ubercute. No David I never read Dr. Weston Price, but after a quick search his ideas on nutrition make sense. I read the criticism about his ideas but recent studies on traditional diets have came to the same conclusions.

You are welcome. He believed that it is grain which causes tooth decay rather than sugar. Also the same friend Robert who is a raw foodie. Claims that grain causes over sexual stimulation as he describes grain as the semen of plants. The constant sexual arousal caused by excessive grain consumption is what according to this theory is causing mankind's chronic obsession with sex. When you completely remove grain from your diet things are much calmer in that department. I speak from experience. :)

Personally sugar and very sweet foods tend to cause me anxiety and greater sexual desire. However with sugar and sweets removed cereals even refined cause less of these two things and whole grains even less, (of course absense of grains lessens even more these things). But whole grains bring a feeling of calmness.When it comes to teeth and gums I feel almost like I'm fasting when eating whole grains instead of refined, this of course if the rest of the diet is natural and without sweets.
I tried to go without grains but was not able. Start eating too much fruit.

Back to the pros and cons of consuming meat debate with a blog which I have copied from the Blog section. Meditating who is now on day 24 of a water fast at True North fasting retreat has an interesting take on consuming animal products.

There is a wonderful doctor here named Michael Klaper. Like all the doctors, he has a fascinating story. He was working as an anesthesiologist (at some point he worked as an ER trauma doctor and a plastic surgeon) and had to help load a patient for a quadruple by-pass. The phlebotomist was unavailable so he drew the patient's blood himself. The patient had just eaten at a fast food restaurant. Seeing this difference was the moment that Dr. Klaper changed the course of his profession.
In every lecture with a PowerPoint presentation, Dr. Klaper always displays a tube of regular blood and a tube of blood from someone who just ate a large meat meal. The difference is startling. As the blood is separated, the red hemoglobin occupies the bottom of the tube and the plasma occupies the top part of the tube. Normally the plasma is a slightly tinted translucent material but after a meal of meat the plasma turns into actual lard and remains that way for up to 4 hours after the meal.
In this videotaped lecture, clearly made decades ago, it was shown that the surgeon attached a device to the inside of the patient's artery and pulled out a plug, several inches long, of yellow congealed stuff that was actual plaque filling the patient's arteries. It was so disgusting.
Dr. Klaper decided then that he would be a better doctor if he helped people avoid disease rather than helping them after the fact. He walked away from his job, became a vegan, and became a general practitioner who built an office with a kitchen in it and taught cooking classes to his patients twice weekly. It is so fitting he eventually found his way to TN.
Today's lecture also included numerous world population studies linking heart disease, breast cancer, and prostate cancer to meat / dairy. On all the charts, Thailand (at least at the time of the study) was the lowest in all these diseases because people lived primarily off vegetables. He also debunked any myth as to why humans would "need" to eat meat and how our bodies demonstrate this was never intended for the human species.
Since I am on the topic of Dr. Klaper, he has several videos out that can be purchased at Amazon including the debunking of many food myths and another that explains the blood tests your doctors order, how to read them, and what they mean. All good stuff! I hope to watch the one on blood tests tomorrow.
