The problem with whole grain and the first one is that these are empty calories. Another thing is that whole grain has two substances in it, and that is:
- Phytic Acid
Phytic Acid is actually anti-nutrient that actually blocks your body from absorbing certain minerals and Gluten is being proved to time to time that it slows down your metabolism, cause digestive issues, thyroid problems and actually can fuck up your metabolism.
Now don’t be so sad that you can’t have a sandwich or a cookie or something. There is an alternative to this.
You can use sprouted grains or coconut flour.

Now, one may ask why Almond Butter is so better than peanut butter, and the reason is, Almond Butter contains an amino acid called L-arginine, and L-arginine increases growth hormone which helps you put on lean muscle. Just a TBSP or more can fire up your metabolism.
