The author of this diet book stated that we do not need to eat grains in a healthy diet.
She could not possibly have been talking about all-round health, though, because everyone knows how wonderful grains make you feel.

Have I been that long without pretzels? No. I can manage. But don’t even think of taking away my oatmeal.
