Frequently, people will ask me, “are whole grains good or bad?” According to Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s Center for Nutritional Studies, whole grains are affordable, can be stored for long periods of time, taste mildly “nutty,” and are easy to prepare. Whole grain foods are low in fat, nutritious and satisfy hunger. Even individuals who wish to avoid gluten can find whole grain foods to fit a healthful, gluten-free diet. Choose whole grain foods instead of refined grains for good health.
Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore has been a leader since 1997 in supporting people with living a whole food plant based lifestyle. Hypnosis help is available for you to make healthy and lasting lifestyle changes.
Whole Grains: Good or Bad?
Center for Nutritional Studies, Marilyn M. Radke: Whole grain foods support good health. Eating whole grain foods reduces the risk of digestive disorders, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Whole grains are high in complex carbohydrates and fiber that help fill us up and delay hunger. Weight control is made easier by eating more whole grains instead of higher-calorie foods.
Whole-grain breads and cereals, pasta, rice, vegetables, and fruits are key parts of varied diet because they provide vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates (starch & dietary fiber), and other substances that are important to good health. They’re also low in fat – as long as you eat them without butter or creamy sauces. Few people eat enough of these foods, though, whether or not they’re trying to lose weight.
Whole grains have been a healthy base of most cultures throughout history. Today, archeologists and anthropologists are telling us that the old myths about gladiators being meat eaters or even hunters and gatherers living off of meat are untrue. Yes, on occasion they ate meat, but the bulk of their meals was based on whole grains, vegetables and fruit.
