Did you know that one of the major contributors to a SLOW metabolism is the over consumption of whole grains, even foods praised as being "high in fiber" such as:
100% Whole Wheat Bread
Whole Grain Pasta
Bran Flakes and other Wheat-based "Fiber" Cereals
Whole Wheat Tortillas and Wraps
Despite having more fiber than their "white" counterparts, these four high-fiber foods destroy your blood sugar and give rapid rise to the fat-storing hormone insulin. In fact, believe it or not, two slices of whole wheat bread raise blood sugar far higher than a can of sugar-sweetened soda or even a sugary candy bar. This is because the wheat of today is nothing like the wheat of generations ago, having been genetically modified by the food industry, mutated, and exposed to the likes of industrial toxins and radiation to force an unnatural higher yield at the expense of your health.
These harmful wheat products, although praised by food manufacturers as healthy for their fiber and "whole grain" content, are a major cause of the raging obesity epidemic in western society today. Even more, because they are so rapidly digested, these foods provide virtually no metabolic benefit during digestion, resulting in less than optimal metabolic rates, and ever-expanding bellies world-wide.
On the other hand, protein is much more metabolically complex, boosting metabolism and burning up to 30% of the calories you eat just during the digestion process, not to mention the fat-burning hormonal benefits of eating less wheat and more protein. Simply put, by swapping out toxic wheat for fat-burning protein starting today, you'll do wonders for your metabolism and your waistline to boot...highly recommended.
