You may know people who must consume specific cakes or cookies every day. Such people are usually frowned upon as more often than not, they complain about the size of their body but they can’t seem to shake off the desire to indulge in unhealthy foods. Research is still going on about this issue but so far, some progress has been made. This is focused on grains containing gluten. Gluten proteins are reduced to form peptides, which are able to stimulate opioid receptors (these are found in the brain and are usually stimulated by the likes of heroin and also when we do intense activities like running.)
Let’s delve into a little science; grains have a lot of carbohydrates. Once they enter your digestive system, they undergo a process that turns them into glucose. This is used to fuel the body as you perform various activities that use up energy. Any glucose not used is stored as fat to be used in the future in case the body is not able to access food or when our bodies use a lot of energy. Our bodies are wired like this to ensure survival even in the harshest of conditions. Fortunately or unfortunately, most people can easily access food. The result is large stores of fat in the body. This is what eventually leads to obesity as well as hormonal roller coasters.
The bottom line is, our ancestors, the cavemen did not eat grains and all this junk we have today. As a result, they had bodies to die for! They were smart enough to know that the human body was not made for grains. After the agricultural revolution, grains were consumed but not in such high amounts as we see today. Processed products such as flour could only be afforded by the rich, probably the reason why they died earlier than the common man. No one can argue with the fact that in the last century of increased grain consumption, the human population has recorded the highest number of obese people, high infertility rates and a very huge number of chronic diseases. Research conducted by the University of Missouri has found an inverse relationship between grain consumption and the testicular size. Additionally, they found that the sperm count of the average American male has dropped by 50% in the last eighty years!
Now you know if you are addicted to some grain product or know someone who is, just take grains off your diet and watch what happens!
