Today we’re going to do a deep dive on “healthy whole grains”. Are they really healthy?
You’ll often hear that whole grains have 2 to 3 times more fiber than refined grains. The problem is that grains don’t have a lot of fiber to begin with.
Even brown rice only has about 4% fiber. However, 1 cup of spinach has 50% fiber and only 4 g of carbs. It’s important to get your fiber from vegetables, not grains.
Many people don’t realize that products with whole grains often come with refined grains, refined sugar, and different chemicals. When whole grains are ground into flour for these products, they also lose nutrition just from this process.
80% of the grain in a flour-based product made with whole grains is starch and will spike your blood sugars. When starch is heated, ground, or processed, your digestive enzymes turn the so-called healthy complex carbohydrates into simple carbohydrates (glucose molecules).
The big problems with whole grains:
1. They’re high on the glycemic index
• Affect your blood sugar
• Affect your mood
• Affect your cognitive function
• Cause weight gain
• Potentially lead to a fatty liver
• Spike your cholesterol
2. They’re high in phytic acid (an anti-nutrient)
• Block various minerals
3. They contain gluten
• Cause gas, bloating, and inflammation
• Potentially cause SIBO
• Potentially increase your risk of developing allergies or Hashimoto’s
4. Wheat contains glyphosate
• Affect your microbiome
• Potentially increase your risk of celiac disease
5. They’re fortified with synthetic vitamins and iron
• Cause them to sit for longer in your gut
• Expose you to types of vitamins that the body is not designed to absorb
