Unrefined whole grain food products are hard to find.Diabetics know all too well the difficulties of management associated with carbohydrates (except for fiber).These difficulties have given credence to the “low carb” trend and the ideas of “carb counting.”These ideas do have a practical short term basis.But they are flawed because they conceal and are a cheap substitute for the fact that almost all carbohydrate products on the market, including whole grains, are in fact refined carbohydrates or processed foods.Herein lies the true problem behind the “carbohydrate problems” that diabetics and obese persons experience.Low carbs are not a bad idea and for diabetics it may be necessary, but “low carbs” should the “right carbs.”When low carbs are simply less of the same refined or processed junk they only offer short term benefits.Discover if you will how powerful of a nutrition resource fresh grains and fresh stone ground grains can be even when taken in small quantity.
