-- -- -- to the hour the USDA recommends that we need a minimum of three ounces of whole grains of day but did you know that eating just two slices of whole grain bread.
Can increase your blood sugar more than two tablespoons of pure sugar cane again.
And an increase blood sugar means more fat and -- higher chance of developing diabetes.
-- that doesn't -- to -- our next guest says the best way to go to get healthy and lose weight.
-- ditch -- completely.
Joining us now is doctor William Davis of preventive cardiologist and author of the new book.
-- belly good morning to doctor.
Good morning so the amazing thing here is that you say that -- whole wheat is actually an appetite.
Exactly that's and it's a crucial point to understand how -- interacts with humans.
There's an odd proteins unique to -- called glided it.
And this protein has essentially been re engineer of the past forty years.
By some very clever geneticists.
Mostly in the process of trying to increase yield that this -- What they've done -- -- fact is create a plan that causes appetite stimulation.
So creates appetite stimulation but this you have heard forget the white -- have weak and it's better you still are anti bread.
Which year Od did you think -- is bad but less bad -- white correct.
But it's a small difference I would say it's it's different similar to if I kill you.
-- filtered cigarettes like more roads are bad for you and filtered cigarettes are less bad.
By that line of logic I should say -- smoke lots of Salem cigarettes and so that's the false line of logic followed.
That led to a nation that follows the advice to eat more healthy whole -- So here's interesting -- saying if people should not eat as much week then maybe -- should go to some of that gluten free stuff that you see.
In -- grocery store my daughter in fact has a friend who can eat meat as I always have that on hand but you say that -- that's not necessarily the best choice either.
Exactly we don't -- -- replaced one problem -- problem with yet another problem.
So the problem with a gluten free world that is the process foods used replaced -- gluten products like Brad.
Is that even if it's a multi grain gluten free -- It's always -- almost always made of rice starch tapioca starch potato starch.
Or -- -- that these -- blood sugar very high because visceral fat to Q -- can make is diabetic if it's arthritis.
So what -- -- trade one problem area we.
For yet another problem area gluten free.
Who would bothers me most of this is true -- night unity have a lot of facts to back you up they -- -- told us to eat.
The whole week they told us the -- and ends -- not being true now they had a seating we -- the whole wheat bread for ten years now that's not true.
What are we to believe anymore besides -- I think.
With -- try to you know we've made our series.
Are sort of blunders over the years I think we've got to come away with this with some lessons.
I do love this in practice and I thought this -- let me tell you how I start this -- venture.
I was very -- with a number of people who were diabetic or pre diabetic.
This but that might practice of preventive cardiology practice but -- 80% of the people coming through my office work diabetic.
Pre diabetic or the rest I call pre pre diabetic and so I want to help them on why -- high blood sugar phenomena.
So I use simple reason.
To slice of whole wheat -- as you point out.
Raise blood sugar higher than nearly all other foods so I had to my patients take we -- their diet they come back three months later thirty pounds lighter.
But they also tell me all these other stories that I did not expect things like my room at current prices so much better I stopped to drugs.
My asthma so much better through way to inhalers that leg swelling I had for years went away the rash I had.
Went away and on and on side.
While it's very interesting so people should take note of what you're saying right now you're the author of we -- Belly you just kind of fell into this whole thing but that's -- the way things are discovered.
A doctor William Davis thank you so much -- insightful this morning.
Thank you my pleasure right.
