Is that why I had headaches every day for 4o years and they stopped when I quit eating wheat? Hmm. I gotta google phytic acid now...


There isn't really any in regular pasta and white rice.

Be careful not to fall into the mark sisson trap when searching for phytic acid. :wink:


Is it a good or bad trap? The guy looks in great shape.

He looks great because he gets his Vitamin D, lives in California and is dedicated.

From understanding metabolism, I would say a bad trap because he is promoting what atkins promoted, minus the greasy foods. He advocates a low carb/high fat diet and this type of mentality is extreme left like fruitarians are extreme right with their high carb/low fat diet.

Basically on low carb diets, the body burns fat as fuel instead of Glucose however this can only happen when eating below 30-60g of carbs per day since Glucose inhibits fat metabolism. Low carb diets are obviously not Vegan.

Balance is key when eating.

Here is an interesting article that you might enjoy reading.

"Phytic Acid is a strong chelator of heavy metals."

I have 4 amalgam fillings and I'm thinking the phytic acid was pulling the mercury out of my brain but this is just a theory.

I was a little afraid to go back to anything "starchy" like pasta or rice after losing so much weight after eating mostly legumes and fruit but I have been incorporating more and more this into my diet again to compliment the pea protein I'm taking now and I have to say I'm still gaining muscle (which I'm now focusing on instead of "just" losing fat) and I'm STILL losing around my waist.

I was 191 when I joined this forum. When I got down to 175 I didn't think I'd get lower and started the muscle bulking again. While gaining muscle mass I continued to lose around my waist down to 170 and maintained that for a little while. Recently incorporating grains back into my diet has resulted in another 2 lbs off the scale to 168 lbs and more OFF of my waist! :boxer: :boxer: :boxer:

For me, it was milk products. I'll never got back to anything from an animal.

Who relys solely on chicken in their diet for protein? Milk,fish? I think we can all argue for or against anything. Variety is the best way to go.

I've been eating sprouted grains nearly every day and thriving. I love my oat groats muesli!


My super easy recipe for Sweet Oat Groats Muesli:

Put 1/3 cup raw oat grouts in a clean glass jar and fill half way with water. Leave top off. Soak for 24 hours somewhere away from heat.
Strain out and refill water several times to wash groats, then pour drained groats into your bowl.
Add 1 T. raw almond butter, 1 T. raw agave syrup, and 1 T. melted coconut oil and mix very well.
Stir in 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon sea salt (lends that delicious sweet-n-salty taste).
Add 1/8 cup Thompson raisins and chew.

This is a sensational breakfast with an apple and a glass of water (dried apples right in the muesli) if you've got a morning of hard labor ahead of you--it's got around 10g of protein. Keeps you full and energized for hiking, too. I usually double all the ingredients other than the grouts because I like flavors intense but I can't finish it all in one sitting, I usually graze on it for half an hour or so with my coffee and, later, a glass of water. You can add dashes of maca, chlorella, flax, hemp protein powder, etc. to suit your dietary desires or some chopped almonds for crunch.

Chewing mine right now...nom, nom nom....

Does anybody notice they feel more hungry after eating whole wheat grains. Not satisfying

No. I think you're the exception.

Long story short, this review says that grains reek havoc on your body. Humans simply haven't evolved to eat them. Does it say anything about this in Roberts book? http://www.beyondveg.com/cordain-l/grai ... shtml#late role


I read fruit causes cancer,candida,diabetes type 1 and 2, osteoporosis,brain damage etc...Don't believe everything you read.Grains are awesome!
