Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Think Whole Grains are Healthy? Think Again!

“Anthony Colpo, a maverick ‘independent health researcher’ like myself, has always been after my heart with his irreverent, entertaining, and cutthroat writing style. In this book he reminds us all that no matter how ‘ingrained’ a nutritional belief may be amongst nutritionists and the general public alike, it often stands atop an enormous mountain of fragility—or in this case a pile of shi*.”~Matt Stone; bestselling author of Eat for Heat

“I think that this is the simplest yet best nutritional advice I have ever read!”~Todd

“Great, concise, snarkily entertaining analysis. Thank you Anthony for superior myth-busting!”~Victoria

In Whole Grains, Empty Promises: The Surprising Truth about the World’s Most Overrated ‘Health’ Food, independent health researcher Anthony Colpo unmercifully slaughters the healthy whole grain myth with a mountain of scientific evidence interlaced with his unmistakable wit.

For nearly a decade, Colpo has been slaying nutritional dragons and diet gurus with his scientific rigor and the unapologetic truth in a way that could almost be considered a martial art. In this book he examines the pervasive belief that whole grains are both healthy in general and healthier than their refined counterparts.

The verdict? No they’re not. And the foundation upon which the belief that whole grains are healthy is built will shock you!

In the book you’ll learn that you may be giving yourself arsenic poisoning with all that brown rice you’ve been eating, depleting your body of valuable minerals with your whole grain bread and porridge, and otherwise torturing your bowels and taste buds with spoonful after spoonful of empty promises.

Read Whole Grains, Empty Promises and decide for yourself if whole grains are really all they’re cracked up to be.

I found this book very easy to read and very entertaining as well. The way the whole myth started is really insane. I am so fed up with all the bad info out there being promoted, I'm glad some people try to expose the truth and show us how we can improve our health easily and without having to pay for that.
I've recommended this book to a few friends aleady and I encourage everyone to read it!
Good job, Mr. Colpo!

Yet another excellent, perfectly-documented book by Anthony Colpo, who's clearly a much more honest and competent researcher than most so-called "nutrition experts". Universities and research labs should be full of people with the same objectivity and thoroughness, unfortunately this is far from being the case...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Changed my life! My stomach is so happy now! 25 novembre 2016
Par Trainer Lady - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Wow! VERY interesting read! I'm 56, very healthy horse trainer, 120 lbs. I eat basic foods. So 4 months ago after reading BS about eating better I started eating a banana with breakfast, whole grain breads, nuts and seeds, and popcorn, because we should eat fiber. Right? So, I started feeling like crap, and bleeding from areas I'd rather not mention!!! Of course, I was alarmed. I felt bloated, fat, and like I had a pump in my stomach. The bleeding would not go away. so, I went kicking and screaming to a digestive Dr. Who of course had me get a colonoscopy. That was AWFUL for me, I can't fast. I just can't. So by test morning I felt like death. But results showed nothing bad, no cancer, no polyps...just inflammation. I was given a low fiber diet to follow. NO FIBER Dr. told me. I tossed out the bananas, the nuts, the seeds, the whole grains bread, gave away the popcorn maker. Immediately I felt WONDERFUL! Like, I feel AMAZING! I sleep great, I've lost 3 pounds, I work all day long, no gas, no bloating. I don't even know I have a stomach anymore. The bleeding stopped in a week! I poop just fine with no fiber. Gee, our bodies seem to do just fine without eating sawdust and sticks. I now go out of my way to eat NO fiber and I feel perfect! It's been 2 months, I'm great. So, now I see the fiber industry had made a lot of people wealthy. Look at the whole aisle of stomach remedy's since the eat more fiber tread started. I think the grain and produce lobby's keep writing the fake articles about eating fiber. Oh, and it's fact that there is NO evidence at all that eating fiber prevents cancer. Zero. None. It's just a guess. It's a scam to sell produce, grain and Tums. This has changed my life! My poor stomach, it's supposed to DIGEST food, not NOT digest it. Great book! I wish it was longer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's hard to find such balanced concise summaries of important research 28 février 2014
Par Victoria Meadth - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I couldn't have come across this book at a better time. I've recently been especially curious about the grain issue, and there's almost no way to get good info that isn't biased either direction (either the agri industry or crackpot conspiracy theorists).
I am a mum of four little kids under 5 and while it has been easy to avoid refined products and added sugar in our family diet, I struggle with reducing grain based products in my kids' diets. The kind of issues being, 'how much is too much' and 'am I taking all this too seriously'. It's like the last frontier for me. The information in this book will help me in my ongoing choices about achieving a balance for my kids that I can live with.
I've followed Anthony's work for several years and although he has a 'unique' way of stating his opinion which can come across a little inflammatory - but generally in a fairly entertaining way if you're sitting on the sidelines - I respect his research and his motives to write. Referring to his other books - the 'fat loss bible' is one of the only diet books I've read that makes any real sense with recommendations directly from the science, as opposed to folklore and myth (I got it about 5 years ago and still refer to it); the 'great cholesterol con' I've only skimmed because it holds little relevance for me, but I know people who've found it useful.
It's rather a shame that this kind of info isn't more widely understood by the health professions.
Kudos Anthony.

You can love the guy or hate the guy (and there are many that hate the guy) but you just cannot argue with the mans research. If you like vague summaries of dubious research papers do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of your favorite mens health magazine. For a quality review on the most current studies look no further than Anthony Colpo. I have been reading here and there about the downsides of the current whole grain fad and this ebook hits the nail right on the head. SO much for the food pyramid!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Look at the food plate and pyramid ... why aren't we a healthier nation by now? 1 mars 2014
Par Greatdanes - Publié sur

This is an important book for our present times. - all over the news. Well here's the real news - don't get sick now. We need all the help we can get, and here's a book to help get you started.


Look at this so called "food plate" endorsed by all these stupid government agencies and then look at the food pyramid before it.
Whole grains are the biggest part of both of these nonsensical recommendations. Both of these have been around for over 25 years and yet western societies are becoming less healthy and more obese. why is that? Are people stupid? Do people really want to be unhealthy? Do they just enjoy feeling tired and poorly?

Maybe, just maybe, a large amount of people are following the governments advice and wonder why they aren't getting better?
Maybe the government is just plain wrong - that would be a first, huh?

What Mr. Colpo has been pointing out through his books is that maybe we all need to take responsibility for our own health and our own research. He seems to 'champion' the concept of self reliance when it comes to your own health. Maybe we all need to do this and not rely on advice from the same government that gave us the wars in Vietnam and the middle east right now plus WMD's. So when is our government right? you want to depend on those clowns when its your life in balance?

I have been using this book as a jump starter, to get me going on my own research, something it seems I should have been doing a long time ago. What I am personally finding (and don't just take Mr. Colpo's [or my word especially]) is that several of the really big, much quoted "whole grain is great for you" studies come from the industry funded Whole Grain Council or were funded by cereal companies. Is that like Phillip Morris funding a study years ago that claimed smoking was good for you?

So people, eating is a life choice choice and from what I am researching on items like whole grains, PUFA's (except fish oil) and saturated fats and other food items, there is a ton of really bad info getting presented a "fact". Don't you owe it to yourself to feel better and avoid illness?

Finally, for me, this book was an excellent warning to research for myself, and clearly a 5 star read, but I don't know yet (still have lots of research to do) how much of a life changer it will turn out to be. Quite a while ago, I read Mr. Colpo's Cholesterol book, and that was a big life changer. I am now off of my statins and blood pressure meds thanks to the research direction his book pointed me towards, and my weight is way down and my exercise tolerance is way up. That book was a definite 6 star (if they allowed that many) read and I greatly recommend it as a companion to this new book..

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Keep Your Gut Happy By Avoiding Whole Grains 28 février 2014
Par R. Medina - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm a health blogger concentrating on gut flora and GI health. I'm constantly confronted with all manner of unscientific claims for this or that 'health' food when it comes to promoting a well-functioning gastrointestinal system. High on that list of supposedly 'sacred' foods are whole grains. As my readers know, I've been warning against consuming these foods for some time now. This book by Anthony Colpo is a welcome addition to the growing scientific refutation of this long-held belief.

Anthony's book is a wonderful illustration of how the road to hell is paved with good intentions. But however admirable those intentions may have been, the only way to know whether a 'health food' claim is true is to subject it to a randomized controlled trial. Nutritional epidemiology, as Anthony never fails to remind us, is useless in determining whether statistical associations have actual scientific validity. Even if you're not interested in the whole grain debate, reading this book will hone your ability to sniff out dodgy nutritional claims.

Whole grains' contribution to gastroparesis, acid reflux, hemorrhoids, and anal fissures goes unmentioned in this book. However, Anthony does spend time discussing the evidence for two claims made by whole-grain enthusiasts, namely reduction in diverticulitis and colon cancer risk. As Anthony makes abundantly clear, the evidence for either claim is as solid as a puff of flatulence. I will be recommending this book to my readers, and will continue to do my part to get the message out about these gut-trashing foods.
