So with an ever growing attack on grains and wheat, its difficult to make out what's "good" and "bad"...just so much conflicting information. Oats, pasta, rice, bread (not as much) have been a staple in my diet. Its just easier to get that caloric surplus to support my training and they're efficient. Just blending up an oat shake with maybe some fruit and milk in their before my training, an easy way to scarf down some calories even post workout. What do you guys think of this? As fighters, martial artists, combat athletes, do you guys find grains beneficial or detrimental to your health and training? For one i'm guessing the quality of grains we get are no longer the same and haven't been for a while with the rise of GMO processing. I'm part middle eastern, people eat nothing but rice and bread in my culture, some of these illnesses associated with grains are unheard of back home.
