After years of no grains, my system was more messed up than when I started. After about a year and a half I was tested and my cholesterol was rising fast... I then talked to my friend who is a registered dietician and she told me about a study on grain-free diets. Some of the people in the study were eating a balanced diet, others were eating grain free. They couldn't even complete the study because the people on the grain free diets had their cholesterol shoot up so fast that they considered it DANGEROUS to continue! Grains do something to balance our cholesterol and that's why they are important to include in our diets in moderation.
It's called fiber. Not really hard to get.
No. It's not just fiber. It's something specific about the grains. I was eating a very high fiber diet before when I was grain free. All I ate other than meat was high-fiber fruits and vegetables. Same with the study. At first when my friend was telling me about this, I thought that maybe they were just eating proteins or something. But no. Their diets were protein, fruits and vegetables, just like mine was, and their levels got so high that the people conducting the study felt it would be dangerous to continue.
