Wheat Weighing You Down?

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire)--We have been taught that replacing white flour with whole grains is a necessity for a healthy heart and slim waist, but new research shows that wheat could be making us fat.

We’ve been taught that wheat is super healthy, but it turns out that advice could be super wrong. From belly bloat to cravings, wheat could be weighing you down.

Super starch is one of the culprits. Carbs in wheat can send your blood sugar soaring. One researcher found two slices of whole wheat bread can raise your blood sugar more than two tablespoons of table sugar. It can also be super-addictive. Gliadin, a protein found in wheat stimulates your appetite. The addiction can lead to cravings and binge eating.

Binging on wheat bread can also make you super lazy. Swinging spikes in your blood sugar can drastically lower your energy level. Some doctors believe wheat contributes to bad sleeping patterns and moods swings.

Another interesting fact is that wheat eaters typically consume an extra 400 calories a day, which is the equivalent of 42 pounds a year. If you’re worried you might have an allergy to wheat, check with your local physician about getting tested.
