Grains should represent a small part of your diet, regardless of your age. I personally seek to avoid most grains, except rice.
But if you’re going to eat some grain-based foods, how much is too much?
This debate heated up earlier this year when two nutritional experts, Dr. Paul Jaminet and Dr. Ron Rosedale, engaged in a debate over how many starches are too many.
Dr. Rosedale believes there is no such thing as a “safe starch” and that all starchy carbohydrates should be avoided, which of course includes all grains.
Dr. Jaminet, on the other hand, is a little more forgiving of some of the “safer starches,” such as potatoes and rice. He believes some people need a small amount of these in their diets.
This is an interesting debate.
It’s well thought out and well articulated, but quite lengthy.
If you have time, I do recommended you reading through all of it to see the nuances of their contrasting views.
