Very nice, Diana. You make excellent points. That said, after eating grass fed beef when we've always previously bought grain-fed, I have to say I absolutely love the flavor of grass fed beef and bison. I know Paleo is a tough approach that most of us don't have the ability to stick to. I fall off the wagon with the occasional latte.One thing I did doscover this past month though was that I absolutely cannot eat grains anymore. Last month, after discovering Steve's Original grain-free granola, I was really enjoying it as an alternative to getting up and eating eggs and veggies for breakfast. We ran out and I found a granola from Bear Naked that looked pretty safe. No wheat, no gluten, no added sugar, but it did have oats. In two weeks my weight didn't go up, but my waist added two inches.I'm off grains entirely again and after a week I already am feeling better, if not back to normal.At the end of the day, it's what works for you. I liked the mention of China in the article as related to rice consumption. In the rural areas around Houston, we have a lot of rice farming. There's a great bumper sticker: Eat Rice...Potatoes Make Your Butt BigI don't think it's quite as simple as calories in < calories out, however, I also don't think there's a magic bullet out there either. It's all down to the individual, and how their body reacts to certain things.I mean, think about it: we have all sorts of things that can affect us. Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, low thyroid, high thyroid. But not everyone gets any or all of these diseases.My mother has diabetes. It was brought on not by her diet, but by a medication that is supposed to help her heart. Same for my father in law, although his diabetes was brought on by a different medication for a different condition.Bottom line: find what works and do it!LWW
