i am currently reading this thread on grains and humans. http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_supplements/_122?id=3947747&pageNo=2
some say grains are bad because we have not evolved enough to eat them and some say grains are only bad for some people. so i have two questions.
1) how do you know if you have a wheat/gluten allergy? i have eaten bread and corn and rice and i have never felt sick from it. am i good? does it still have potential to hurt me and my insulin sensitivity or other long term negative effects on my health? where do ezekial products fall in this mix?
2) coming from a bodybuilding perspective as far as i know grain products like rice/bread/oats help build the most muscle and restore muscle glycogen dont they? if you wanted to go grain free what carb source would give you the equivalent muscle building glycogen filling abilities that grain products do? potatoes because of the starch?
basically what im saying is i want to be as healthy as can be but i also want to be muscular and fit. could that be done with and without grains? would either of those routes be longer or not as good? if i do not have a wheat/gluten allergy how would i find out? and if i dont have an allergy to it then im good with eating all wheat bread products?
