Why Whole Grains Aren’t As Healthy as You Think [Video]

Whole grains – they’re a crucial component of a healthy diet, right? Not so, says Integrative Nutrition visiting teacher Dr. William Davis. 

According to this cardiologist and author of the runaway bestseller Wheat Belly, grains are in fact “incredibly destructive genetic monsters” that do more damage than a Snickers bar – and yes, that includes whole grains! 

In this interview, Dr. Davis shares why whole grains aren’t as healthy as you think, how wheat today is different from 75 years ago, and what to eat to reduce your cravings (hint: it’s not gluten-free cookies.) Watch the video below!

This just one of over 100 different dietary theories that we cover in our curriculum; many of our other visiting teachers still advocate for whole grains as part of a healthy diet. In the end, it’s all about finding which foods work best for you. 

Have you ever tried a wheat-free, gluten-free, or grain-free diet? How did it make you feel? We’re all ears! Let us know in the comments section of the blog post.
