Grains are fixtures of modern life. Pastrami on rye, spaghetti dinners, corn on the cob, birthday cake, apple pie, endless breadsticks, pizza parties, taco nights. Studies about "heart-healthy whole grains" in the news. "AHA Approved" icons affixed to any concoction in the grocery store that contains a few grams of wheat—never mind all the sugar and seed oils. Grains are "staples," bread is the "staff of life," and most people can't imagine a meal without some type of grain on the table. Yes, grains are solidly etched into our modern Western psyche—just not so much into our physiology. For the vast majority of human evolution, we were hunter-gatherers eating meats, nuts, bitter wild greens, regional veggies, tubers and roots, and fruits and berries. We ate what nature provided. If we ate any grains at all, they were wild and scarce—never staples. Somewhere along the line, enough of us figured out how to domesticate and proliferate those wild grains. The first large scale grain farming was occurring by around 10,000 years ago. And that's where the trouble started. The Agricultural Revolution and Its Effects on Health Grains are one of the "big three" foods I recommend avoiding (along with industrialized seed oils and added sugars). Why? Because once grains became a big part of a given human population's diet, human health suffered: People got smaller and weaker. Their teeth were worse. They died earlier. The only thing that improved was their ability to reproduce. Grains meant a steady source of calories and facilitated population growth. The individual agriculturalist may have been weaker and more unhealthy than an individual forager, but the former were more numerous and more successful. They grew and pushed the foragers aside. Most people reading this today carry an amalgam of farmer, forager, and pastoralist DNA. That means your ancestors had varying levels of grain-eating in their past. That's not what I'm talking about when I say that grains aren't Primal. When I say humans didn't evolve eating grains, I mean our digestive processes didn't evolve to maximize the effectiveness of grain consumption. You can probably tolerate grains to a certain degree thanks to having at least some farmer ancestry. That doesn't mean your body was designed for them or that they're required— or even helpful—for achieving optimal health. The goal isn't to eat foods that allow you to hobble along. We're talking about prioritizing the foods that offer effective and efficient digestion and nutrient absorption in the body. What's Wrong With Grains? Think about the non-grain foods you eat on a regular basis. Think how easy they are to prepare. Meat and seafood: You can eat it raw or grill it over a fire. You'll digest it great either way and incorporate all the nutrients it contains. Dairy: As long as you're able to handle the lactose and your immune system is intact and prepared to face casein and whey without acting up, you can drink a tall glass of raw milk and have no issues whatsoever. Fruit: It's made … Continue reading "The Definitive Guide to Grains"
