Whole grain foods are high in fiber and low in fat and help people feel “full” — and yet the Mayo Clinic estimates that less than 5% of Americans reject their recommendation for three servings per day.

We gain weight when we consume more calories than we expend in exercise and other activities. Period. End of discussion — there is no such thing a gluten free (or a gluten toxic) calorie.
