Bread?! Pasta?! Potatoes?! You want me to eat what???? Such is the response I get from most people, regardless of the issue that brings them into my office, when I suggest adding grain carbohydrates to their diet. I even hear this reaction from professionals! Bread, potatoes, rice, beans, cereals, pasta, etc., which are also known as carbohydrates (CHO), have been given a bad rap since the 1972, when Richard Atkins published his book, Diet Revolution.
