A no-grains diet can help you drop pounds. In this video, Dr. Andrew Rubman, naturopathic physician and author of Bottom Line’s “Nature Doc’s Patient Diary” blog, discusses how limiting grains can help you lose weight. Gluten contained in grains can provoke inflammation in the gut, and that can cause the body to store energy as fat. Gluten is particularly bad in this regard, but the body breaks down many grains in such a way that it causes weight grain.
