    Hello, jeff!

    Great post, Is very helpful for people that are trying to figure out what is best to eat and avoid.
    I personally eat whole grain, and other grains like quinoa and brown rice and one can feel the difference between the 2 lifestyle choices.

    Your list of the must-avoid grains was also very helpful for me.

    With respect

      Thank You Sir,

      I am always happy to hear my articles are helping people, you seem to be on the right track with the right grains to eat with brown rice and quinoa.

    Wow my main diet is white rice and you listed it as an unhealthy grain. In Asia, most people eat white rice for lunch and dinner.

    Good to hear that basmathi is a good grain. It’s the main ingredient for nasi beriani, one of my favorite dishes 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this article, I would certainly visit your site for more healthy diet information.

      Thank You Raynold,

      I also use to think and eat white rice regularly, I learned white rice turns to sugar which can sabotage your diet. White rice is healthier than most pasta’s and other grains, but brown rice and the other rices have less sugars and have not been processed like white rice has.

    I am guilty of eating several of the unhealthy grains! but now I am trying to cut down white bread consumption and switch to healthier grains such as whole wheat. I don’t have a sensitivity to grains but I have a bad habit of eating too much of them, such as white bread. that’s something that will need some time correcting.

      White bread does have a lot of sugar in it which can sabotage your weight and your diet, its good you know white bread is something you need to work on and the best of luck to you.
