Here is a super interesting video called, Is Wheat Worse Than Sugar?
Some of what he describes I vividly remember experiencing as a child.
Blood sugar highs and lows.
Eat something with wheat, and feel hungry again less than two hours later. It was like riding a hunger roller coaster.

My Personal Experience
One of the major things in life that helped me feel better, have more energy and lose weight was learning to eat better quality foods, so that my blood sugar would be balanced. I remember in my high school days, I would eat cereal with milk for breakfast every day. Within an hour of getting to school, I had a headache and could not concentrate, on top of that I would feel tired. So between classes, I would grab a Twinkie, or other similar junk and feel instantly revitalized, – for about an hour. Then the same symptoms would reappear until lunch and so on through the day.
The as a young adult I started learning about healthy eating. Quality protein and healthy fats made a big difference in blood sugar balance and feeling a lot better overall. I also learned to like a lot more vegetables.
So it’s not just the gluten when it comes to wheat. Sometimes it’s the blood sugar spike that causes problems for people.
