This is much like the odd shift in the meaning of "substitute" commented upon some weeks ago:

"New dietary guidelines coming out Wednesday are expected to place more emphasis on counting calories and exercising daily, along with swapping whole grains for refined ones and eating a lot more vegetables and fruits."  --  Gov't: Calories, Not Carbs, Make You Fat (AP)

This says to me (nonsensically) that if you're eating whole grains now, you should switch to refined ones.
