BOOM Diet Program Whole Grain Page and Celiac Disease Symptom Page.
Whole grains should be included in anyone''s diet program. They are called whole grains because they include the original layers of the grain called the bran and the germ. These layers are rich in nutrients and fiber. When a whole grain is refined, like white flour, it has been stripped of all its minerals, fiber and phytochemicals. The fiber in the whole grains also fills you up faster, so you tend to eat less. Try to get 4-5 servings a day.**Celiac disease is basically having an allergy to gluten, a protein found in some whole grains like wheat. Most people have no idea they have this disease. Scroll towards the bottom to see more on this disease and celiac disease symptoms. For a more in depth explanation of celiac disease and its symptoms,

Anything refined or not "whole" is usually worthless. 1 slice of bread equals one serving size.2) Brown Rice~ Brown rice hasn''t been stripped of its nutrient filled outer layers like white rice has. A serving size equals about 1/2 cup.3) Whole Grain Cereal~ A good part of any diet program. There are many different varities out there.4)Steel Cut Oatmeal~ Regular, instant oatmeal raises your blood sugar levels rather quickly.AVOID REFINED or WHITE FLOURWhite flour turns to sugar very quickly in the body. It does the same damage to your body and raises your blood sugar just as eating straight table sugar would do. White or refined flour has no whole grains, little nutrients, no fiber and can wreck almost any diet program. Stay away fro the white breads, pastas, potatoes, rices, tortillas and crackers.CELIAC DISEASE SYMPTOMSSome celiac disease symptoms include: Skin Rashes, Canker Sores, Diarrhea, Digestion Problems, Hypoglycemia or Low Blood Sugar, Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies and Autoimmune Diseases like Thyroid Disease or Diabetes.Celiac disease is caused by an allergic reaction to gluten found in wheat, rye, oats and barley. The immune system creates this inflammatory reaction which goes on to damage the lining of the small intestine. If you have celiac disease symptoms, try eliminating wheat and anything else with gluten from your diet program. If the celiac disease symptoms go away, you probably have the disease, but also know what to do to stop it.
