“There is NO evidence that grains are healthy. Every study compares refined grains to whole grains. If you want to eat the most calorie for calorie nutritionally poor "food' source be my guest....but please don't try and claim there is any science to eat them in favour of nutrient dense vegetables.”

“I have done the research we are VERY well evolved omnivores and we have evolved to eat meat we have thrived eating meat. In noway, size shape or form are we herbivores we are missing we are missing multiple stomachs or a cacum.
Blind belief that we are herbivores does not change the fact that we are well evolved omnivores.”

“People have been brainwashed by the Whole Grain Council so they put blinkers onto the facts. Plus sugar adictions are very hard to overcome and it is easier for the masses to believe the lies and propoganda of the Whole grain fad.”

“Legumes are a good vegetable source of protein that does not make them a good source of protein

Wow...cheep insults from the peanut gallery....like the Atkins people a few years
back?
Two points there 1) atkins was low carb and although paleo can be low carb the focus is on a plate full of veg with some healthy grass fed or wild protein....not atkins at all (but again that shows how little you know)
2) Interesting that you brought up Atkins...did you know they Whole Grain Council was formed in response to Atkins and the fact that people were realizing refined grains were just low fibre sugar bombs? The WGC has convinced the mindless masses that Whole grains are good for you, when they have presented NO evidence to support that - only that they are better than refined. There is a whole generation of people who have been raised on the WGC propaganda machine and look around you ...it is not working.”

“Coconut oil used to be what was used to pop popcorn back in the 70s.
My point is the veg@n options presented margarine, instant soup, ready made frosting etc are very unhealthy veg@n options and should never be part of a healthy diet whether they contain trans fats or not.”

MsMoonpieJD on Nov 9, 2013 at 10:37:34

“P.S. I can read. I understood what you said the first time and agreed with you, with coconut oil as a good example.

You think it was "used in the 1970s" because that's as far back as you remember. I assume you were born in 1964.”

“Beans and nuts are OK sources of protein, most if not all veg@ns include grains in their diet which are nothing more than 70% carbohydrate which is made up of long chains of glucose. If you avoid those...power to you.”

“You are eating more primal than vegetarian. Most vegetarians eat a high grain/sugar diet.
A diet should be like yours, mostly veg, with some healthy wild or pastured protein...nothing better for the body.”

IrisMozenter on Nov 7, 2013 at 10:02:58

“Perhaps teenage "vegetarians" eat a high sugar diet, because they don't understand nutrition, but most of us older vegetarians avoid sugar since we know the damage sugar does to the body. Beans and nuts are good sources of protein.”

“"while processed foods and refined grains are low in fiber"

AND HIGH IN SUGAR

All these studies always come back to high sugar foods. Yes fibre can slow the release of sugar, but the problem is still sugar. Focus on eating 2/3 to 3/4 of your plate full of veg, add some wild or pastured protein and you are good to go.”
