  2. Great podcast guys. I look forward to every episode.

    I would like to offer a different perspective on Mike Boyle’s negative take on grain consumption. You can’t draw any reliable conclusions about nutritional do’s and don’ts by comparing a ruminant with a four compartment stomach to a human. The logical extension of this line of reasoning would be that we should be consuming mostly grass.

    Our closest genetic relatives subsist on a diet comprised largely of fruit (yes, they do consume other plants and some meat…), but there aren’t many who would offer this more suitable comparison as evidence that we should become primarily frugivorous.

    Whole grains, used appropriately, have a place in the diet of the human athlete. Grains (and meat) if consumed in excess can cause the body to utilize minerals from bone to maintain pH balance, however, this can easily be compensated for by maintaining adequate vegetable intake.

    • Hey Jerry,

      Thanks for taking the time to listen to the podcast and give us your feedback!

      I think grains have a place in the diet. We addressed this mantra in our previous podcast, the kool-aid drinkers one. In addition, we addressed this idea with Lyle McDonald as well – which was one of the best podcasts we have ever done.
