The FACTS: It's really quite simple. While there are plenty of healthy types of grain to eat, eating a grain in its whole form (unprocessed in any manner) is the most natural and health-safe way to take advantage of healthy proteins and carbohydrates in grain. Wheat, oats, barley and rye, among others, contain a protein called gluten, to which a portion of the population is allergic, causing unhealthy inflammation in the body, and consequently, resistance to weight loss. You can read a lot more on this subject in UltraMetabolism, where you can get a more in-depth explanation. The majority of the carbohydrates in products containing gluten, come from gluten itself.
