Here’s the deal: whole wheat sucks ass.
Like, just because you’re ordering a cream cheese bagel on whole wheat doesn’t mean you’re healthy.
And after reading Wheat Belly, I’m breaking up with whole wheat.
Nowadays there’s so many other options, so it’s NBD.
Dr. Davis ( the author of Wheat Belly ) states that “replacing white flour products with whole wheat flour products is no better than replacing unfiltered cigarettes with filtered cigarettes –you’re just eating food that is “less bad” for you, rather than making healthy food choices. Even whole wheat bread – despite having a bit extra fiber – can increase blood sugar to an even higher level than a candy bar can because of its high glycemic index.”

Listen, I’m not saying I’ll never eat whole wheat again because that’s just unrealistic. What I’m saying is this: I’m cutting down on it. If I can avoid it, then I’ll avoid it. Whole wheat pasta? I’ll use spaghetti squash. My morning toast? It will be replaced with this.
Let’s just say I’m more aware of WTF I put in my mouth after reading the book.
So!!! Just because it’s whole wheat doesn’t mean it’s ‘healthy.’ Sometimes I get angry with the media & marketing companies. They have the power to dictate what people think & eat ( #annoying ). Knowledge is power!! Don’t let the media trick you into thinking whole wheat is nutritious!
< End of rant >.
Anyway, I’d love to know your thoughts on whole wheat?
P.S. Happy birthday to my lover man, Michael! ILOVEYOUSO!!!
