Eating healthy comes with a ton of rules. Swap soda for water, sweets for fruits and veggies and white carbs for whole wheat, but some things aren’t as healthy as they may seem.
According to an article by Dr. Mark Hyman in The Huffington Post, there are three reasons why health eating wheat is not only making you fat, but increasing your risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, depression and more.
Dr.Hyman says this is not the wheat our grandparents used, the wheat in today’s foods is actually FrankenWheat, a scientifically engineered food product developed in the last 50 years. Dr. Hyman lists three ways this fake wheat affects our health:
- It contains a Super Starch — amylopectin A that is super fattening.
- It contains a form of Super Gluten that is super-inflammatory.
- It contains forms of a Super Drug that is super-addictive and makes you crave and eat more.
Carbs, white, or wheat, both pack on the pounds, but Dr. Hyman feels wheat is much worse and suggests that people stop eating it completely. In fact, he suggests people get tested to see if they have a more serious wheat or gluten problem and then suggests a six week 100 percent gluten-free diet trial to see how you feel.
Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like nothing is truly healthy these days.
We’re told to eat healthy, but then they healthy foods we’re told to eat turn out to be just as unhealthy as the pizza we’re trying to avoid. Perhaps has part of the fight against obesity, the government should place bans on chemicals and scientifically engineered foods…maybe then healthy food will actually be healthy enough to eat.
