spectrum is a comfortable or healthy way to live. Truthfully I've always had a touchy GI system, and the only time in my life I've been "regular" is when I have a low-fat, low-cal, low-carb, high protein diet, which includes 1-2 small servings of whole grains. This works for me, and I will never be convinced that the GI rollercoaster that a grain-free diet had me riding is "better" or "healthier" for my body.
