Cutting out all grains for a period of time can seem like an overwhelming task for many of us – yes, we're talking bread, pasta, pancakes, cookies, donuts, even corn and rice. According to prominent keto nutrition expert Dr. Eric Berg, cutting out grains will have far greater benefits for your body than cutting out sugar! Undoubtedly, sweet foods as well as grains lead to a rise in blood sugar, since they contain carbohydrates, but the harm in the latter comes from the inflammatory processes in the stomach that they can cause.
Let's first clarify what grains are - in fact, they are the seeds of a certain type of plant.They are made of an outer shell that is rich in vitamins from the B group, vitamin E, as well as valuable minerals. The "problem" comes from the protein they contain - gluten. In the course of the development of the industry, the grain has already undergone "husking" - a process in which all the elements that make it up are removed, leaving only the flour - i.e. - the gluten. It would be far he althier if we consumed the beans whole, pre-soaked – that way we would enjoy the benefits they would have on our body.
And this is what happens if you stop eating processed grains:
You will reduce inflammatory processes in the body
You can feel how your body is more compact, finer, how you feel lightness and mobility. After consuming pasta foods, many people report feeling "bloated". If you're one of them, maybe you should try a gluten-free diet.
You will remove stomach bloating
Many times ladies suffer from a bloated stomach and discomfort, but the hectic rhythm of life and lack of time makes us resort to foods that are easily available - namely - the packaged ones. If you choose a gluten-free lunch, you will feel much fresher, you will avoid the annoying discomfort that eating dough brings with it.
You will feel less pain before period
Painful premenstrual syndrome is a condition that occurs in many women. Grains can have a negative effect on hormone levels, while eliminating them can help you experience less pain and mood swings.
Reduce night feedings
Everyone wakes up in the night with an insatiable craving for sweets - the reason for this can be rooted in excessive consumption of carbohydrates, which leads to fluctuating blood sugar levels - and hence - unexpected sudden sweet cravings.
A protein-rich diet can help stabilize insulin levels, thereby reducing sugar cravings.
Better heart he alth
Excessive consumption of cereals can have a negative effect on the he alth of your cardiovascular system, because in the process of processing, they have lost most of their valuable vitamins, fibers and minerals.
You will avoid constipation
If bread is an invariable part of your every meal, it is very likely that you experience problems with timely bowel movement. There is an old maxim that says: "The he alth of the whole organism begins in the stomach" - that's why you should think about whether it would be better for you to choose gluten-free bread.
