Every day, over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat. As a result, over 100 million of them experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes and high blood su

Oh God, do I have to read this? No. I refuse. I don’t have time. I’m not angling to be the one to pick through the errors, and write the “definitive refutation.” So this isn’t a “refutation” of the book or even an indication that wheat may not, after all, contribute to the obesity problem.
Gluten intolerance and celiac disease are real, and they may be more widespread than people realize. I know some vegans who are gluten intolerant and there’s even a blog, http://getoffgluten.blogspot.com/ whic
Before reading a book like this I like to check over some of the critical reviews, just for kicks. I’d already purchased it, so after reading the reviews, I was regretting that I bought it. Then I read it. I liked it. A lot.
You may have heard that if you want to know if a book is true, you should put it to the test. I would challenge the critics to do that. I have never gone without whole wheat, and I’m going to put it to the test because I find his information to be credible. I’d like to be inf
Look, I used to be the last person on the planet who would have considered giving up wheat. I thought people who gave up gluten were crazy (unless they had celiac disease, obviously). I knew that pasta and brown bread were healthy for me – I’d had it drummed into me since childhood. But since I was about fourteen or fifteen, I’ve had bad health – low energy, bad skin, weight problems, digestive issues – nothing serious, but a host of things that made life that bit harder and less pleasurable. Th
Turns out I could feel worse. I was gluten-free for about three years and I became very anemic and had low vitamin B12. My energy plummeted even further, I couldn’t sleep and I had terrible headaches. I lost a ton of weight – probably 35-40lbs, so everyone kept saying I looked great, but I felt awful. I was thin, for sure. Which our culture sees as evidence of health, unfortunately. But I was not healthy. I wish that somebody had mentioned taking a multi-vitamin. I thought I was doing everything right, but I was missing out on a lot of nutrients.
Not eating wheat was so restrictive and isolating and it made me obsess about food. And unfortunately, my body seems to have become dependent on the B Vitamins that are added to wheat products, because I struggled with B vitamin deficiencies throughout my gluten-free life. Before you start this diet, my advice is to start a good quality multi-vitamin. B vitamins are routinely added to wheat products, so when you go off wheat, you may become deficient in them like I did. A good probiotic is probably the other thing I would recommend.
