Of course when you reduce grains from your diet you're going to feel better. Grains are carbs. Carbs add on weight. Fewer carbs means you lose weight and thus feel better. This book makes a good point - that we've overdone the whole grain trend and people mistakenly believe that more is better. However, if you're looking for substantive, concrete evidence that avoiding grains is the way to go, you won't find it here. I suspect because it isn't based on any scientific proof or evidence. In fact, if she'd pointed to any evidence, I might have given this book one more star. This idea that cavemen were healthier is just BS. Yes, they ate leaner diets when meat was available and they for way more exercise than we do. Healthier? They certainly didn't live longer. They Might have had less cancer because they didn't eat processed food or polluted foods or GE foods. Yes, it's a good idea to stay away from those foods, but avoiding or eliminating grains? I don't see any evidence to suggest there are any real problems with eating them as part of a balanced diet.

I found this book to be somewhat vague and non-scientific. It's all stuff I've read before. The 'quizzes' to determine how sensitive you are to wheat or grains are too broad. There is some good info on tests and glutens, but the part about 'exorphins' is just plain silliness. Save your time and money, here's a summary: (i) avoid grains, esp wheat (ii) go organic where possible (iii) it's hard and people might think you're weird but go for it.
