    Am i eating too much wheat?

    Since doing research, i have come conserned that a large amount of my carb intake comes from wheat based products, The following is where most of my carb intake comes from:

    Wholemeal bread
    Wholewheat pasta
    Egg noodles

    Mostly i am eating the wheat based products.

    I considered the micro nutrient benefits of eating fruit and vegetables could be compensated through the use of multivit/mineral supps. Is this way of thinking wrong? What are the negative effects of wheat produce and lack of fruit/veg? and can they be compensated with multivit?

    What recommendations do you suggest to improve my carb sources?

    Thanks for your comments.

    its not what you eat, but how much of it.
    In your average day what are the quanitities of each of those things you eat?
    your right in thinking the vits/mins can be compensated for in a multi-however its the phytochemicals that you can't replace...

    whole wheat is healthy food

    vitamin pills are isolated and never as good as whole foods

    multi-vitamins don't usually have phytonutrients which are found in abundance from fruits and veggies

    I like the idea of looking at carbs like a stock portfolio

    high density: grains
    med density: fruit
    low densigy: veggies

    density = cals...mix up your portfolio

    if your bulking veggies may seem useless

    I say have two small salads with your large meals especially meat to aid in digestion

    fruit as a snack or take 2-3 servings and a scoop of vanilla protein powder and make a smoothie
