Re: Grass fed Whey?!?!

Well yes, straw is a grass, however the article goes on to mention grains are "main contributors of starch to diets." True grains are the seeds from the Poaceae, however the "grass fed is better" ideology believes cows shouldn't be eating grains; thus the need for differentiating "grass fed" from co...

Grass fed Whey?!?!

Would whey from grass fed cows actually be beneficial-- (or even worth the money?) I'd think the omega 3s would be processed out since whey is a protein.

Re: Understanding product labels: Fat

Personally, I don't need them. I have berries and yogurt an hour or so before my workout, and milk with protein powder after. I do have a casual eating day on Saturday when I get together with my buddies and eat whatever-- pizza, hamburgers, a couple of beers-- but the rest of the week I'm no grain....

Re: Understanding product labels: Fat

Rye is just another grain and grain products are dietary fillers-- if you can't get the calories you need elsewhere.
To me, ancient grains seems like a gimmick-- they are still small seeds that need to be processed (and flavored) before they're edible.

Re: Understanding product labels: Fat

Raspberries are high in fiber, aren't processed, and don't contain any grain products-- Actually I think all berries fit those conditions! After 20+ years of eating breakfast cereals or oatmeal every morning, I've switch to a handful of nuts and berries with greek yogurt. Emil don't let all this adv...

If you restrict your carb consumption and eat eggs, cholesterol numbers improve.

Re: Couple of words about the quirky world of nutrition

Carbs = sugars and starches regardless of the source i.e. potatoes, bananas or grains. So any carb loading IS eating loads of starch My understanding is humans have a limited capacity for glucose storage-- "350 g as muscle glycogen, 90 g in the liver and a small amount of circulating glucose in the ...

Re: Couple of words about the quirky world of nutrition

Grains are less nutrient dense than the other high fiber foods-- fruits and vegetables. So no reason to eat grains for the fiber.
