Default whole grain & digestion issues

Hi all

whats your opinion on whole grain?
do many people have issues with them?

I find eating whole grains makes me bloat up, and causes some discomfort, & I need multiple trips to the rest room

I have read that whole grain food is superior but, I can handle white bread/pasta/rice a lot better than the wholegrain equivalents.

some people have suggested going paleo, but that seems a little restrictive (and I wouldn't give up dairy)

Maybe you should go to the Doc and get tested for digestive problems like Celiac Disease, which I have.

I think I may get tested again, I was tested about 4 years ago, when I had some stomach issues, all back back clear, had scope done as well

but there are gluten products that I consume that don't cause issues, as in I can drink beers without the same issues that I get from grains.


also - if you are eating gluten free, do you find it hard to maintain weight/bulk?

I also had no issues, or so I thought, with some products that contained Gluten. It could be gluten intolerance you have or some other gastro intestinal issue. The problem with grains these days, especially wheat, is that they are so far gone from our grandparents days as they have been genetically modified many times.

No problemo with weight control or bulking. I bulked from 183 to 238 eating squeaky clean and gluten free. (clean means to me eating food in its most natural state)

One of the big issues is, they don't test for gluten intolerance at all (though, I'm not sure they can), just for Celiac Disease and then they can overlook it since many surgeons only take minimal samples, whereas 20+ samples gives a better shot at determining whether a person has it or not. Then the gauntlet of positive-negative results has to be run as well, including the fact that not all gluten intolerant people react the same way to the gluten, makes for a very complex issue.

More fibre due to more whole grains, will make for more toilet visits.
