Lectins in Potato, Tomato, Barley, Rye, Rice Prevent Wt Loss ?

avoid these for loss of visceral fat, less DM2, CVDz
Mercola is saying that these foods have "similar properties to wheat"
they contain chitin-binding lectins which act similarly to wheat lectin (WGA)
chitins = n-acetyl-glucosamine in long polymers (where are these? on nerve cells?)
WGA and these foods bind them
sprouted wheat contains the most WGA and also BA's (benzoxazinoids, toxic)
