BALANCE in all things.
low carb high fiber whole grains, for people who do NOT have Gluten allergies, in Moderation, is a good thing.
Yes many grains are just as harmful as sugar because the body breaks them down into sugar.. so without fiber to bind and slow that conversion down, or without exercise enough to use it in the rate the body BURNS it off, the carbs from whole grains are converted into FAT cells just like sugar anyway, and we all already read how bad sugar is.
So just because its "whole" grain or "low carb" grain doesn't make it SAFE.
The body doesn't need more than 40g of carbs to function for anything... (which it can get from green vegetables) unless of course one is exercising all the glucose from that out already.
