It just goes to show you, find what works for YOU!
Grains, specially wheat, do not work for anyone, we are not birds.
If you do a search for lectin then you will see the amount of research that has been done over that last 30+ years that shows lectins, which are found in all grains, are inflammatory and are closely linked to many western diseases, specifically CVD, auto-immune disease, autism, IBS, Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and many others.
So not only will grains, specifically wheat, cause insulin spikes, which is bad for fat loss, they will also slowly kill you.
