He is now lowering his Protein to about 50 grams daily, and eating oatmeal for breakfast. Oat bran has been his intestinal cleaner for a while now.
He also used to not like mushrooms but when the research showed it was possible to remove toxins with long cooking, he changed his thinking. Oat bran + cascara + carrot salad + mushroom cream soup is guaranteed to clean bowels thoroughly.
Ray continues to enlighten us with new information. Lately oatmeal and oat bran, now scalp massage.
Thanks.His contradictions are mind blowing at this point. How can anyone trust or believe anything he says? I was of the mindset that starch was literal poison. If you eat it you'll get starch particles lodged in your arteries and if you don't die of cancer you'll have a stroke. Also his 30 cups of...raypeatforum.com
This is one of the figures from the paper. I’ve added a green line to show you the level of the negative control, meaning below which there is no gluten-cross reactivity. And, I’ve highlighted all the positives in yellow, meaning those foods are potentially cross-reactive with gluten antibodies.
What are Prolamins?Prolamins are a toxic lectin that are abundant in grains, legumes, and pseudo-grains (more specifically, in the seed of the plant, which includes wheat, oats, barley, quinoa, rice, peanuts, and soy).
Examples of prolamins are gliadin in wheat (gliadin is the protein fraction of gluten), hordein in barley, secalin in rye, zein in corn, kafirin in sorghum, orzenin in rice, and avenin in oats.
Studies show that prolamins in quinoa, corn, and oats can cause damage to the gut and stimulate the immune system in celiac sufferers in a manner completely analogous to gliadin. Clearly, this means that those with celiac disease should never consume these other grains or pseudo-grains. But also, because of the understanding that gluten increases intestinal permeability, which is strongly linked with all chronic illness, anyone struggling with a diagnosis should probably avoid the consumption of grains, pseudo-grains, and legumes.
It's only soluble fiber that binds bile. So if you have very little of it 95% of your bile just recirculates. That's why Ray always recommended the carrot. Though cooked carrots bind bile better. Steamed veggies in general are good as well.I personally try to keep soluble fiber to a minimum. I don't see much use in something that's going to slow transit time.
For some reason, Oat Bran (cooked) was like plaster in my gut. Well Cooked/Hydrated, Honey, LF Milk. Didn't seem to matter.Ray has talked about oat bran for years, going back to his 70s books.
I think he's returned to it mostly for enjoyment and taste.
I've never been a huge fan of oatmeal, but I must say I absolutely love oat bran these past couple of months. A little butter, sugar (or maple syrup), pinch of salt, cinammon, and 1/4 cup of oat bran with milk is delicious.

Looked around for days every week, then realized! The horse barn was ME, right in my own sinus. Goodbye Oat Bran.
Huh, it cooks up so nicely with half water, half milk. I wonder if that's because of the phosphorus and calcium binding.Isn't Oat Bran super high in phosphorus? Wouldn't that considerably throw off the calcium/phosphorus ratio?
Seems more likely that is to do with resistant starch and their role in creating SCFA's than anything to do with mineral content or ratiosHuh, it cooks up so nicely with half water, half milk. I wonder if that's because of the phosphorus and calcium binding.
It seems to be helping my digestive capacity.
Maybe this old saying applies ... Oat bran is the exception that proves the rule?.i know he doesn't advocate for any specific foods or a diet of any description, but i do find his inclusion of oat bran to his own diet to be a bit ironic lol
