According to a Cambridge University research review, “Epidemiological studies find that whole-grain intake is protective against cancer, CVD, diabetes, and obesity”.

It is easy to see that the mythologies regarding weight gain and carbohydrate consumption are related to the overconsumption of refined products. One needs to look no further than the cultures that rely on cereal grains as their main food to see the absurdity of the weight gain claim.

Our bodies are even especially constructed to eat them.
