What You Need to Know about Gluten: 7 Gluten-Free Diet Myths Busted

gluten free diet myths

Gluten has got a bad rap in the last decade. In fact, you can interpret it many ways. Gluten is bad for you, and they say gluten is not bad unless you are one of the rare few that have celiac (gluten intolerance disease). Let’s be honest, they  (doctors, researchers, food enthusiasts) say exactly the same things about wine, chocolate, and life in general in the media and research. The wine has antioxidants and is good for you –  but wine is alcohol, addictive, poisonous, and evil. The research shows both sides of the argument, and then everything is covered by an  “everything is good in moderation” hat. Everyone is happy and likes that hat because it puts the blame on someone else. Then we can go our ways and interpret “the facts” just the way we want.

Now, where is the truth though when it comes to gluten? Is a gluten free diet a myth? Is gluten-free diet a myth that needs to be busted?

Can you pass a bakery department at a grocery store peacefully? Does your heart race a little? Do you go “just to have a look”? Many of us are cookie monsters! Luckily for us, more and more health and nutrition trends say that sugar addiction is a real thing. I know you may not want to hear that, but the fact is… obesity rates and type 2 diabetes rates are climbing exponentially, and sugar addiction is part of the problem.

LCHF 101: How to Successfully Implement Low Carb – High Fat Method

low carb high fat

Low-fat foods became dominant in the stores in the last few decades. We forget that our moms and dads were not concerned about eating low-fat, though. They ate plenty of vegetables, put butter on the meat, and limited processed foods. Some people call low-carb, and high fat diets a fad. Some people do not even want to hear about increasing their fat intake. The rhetoric against fat is so ingrained, that some people cannot even consider any alternative methods.

What’s in the low-carb, high-fat method for you? How to successfully implement it?

How to Choose Your Best Diet Plan (5 Factors to Consider)

choose best diet plan

Did you hear all the recent hype? All the bashing of paleo, all the dashing for DASH diet? Ugh! Things like these make my blood boil. OF COURSE, you will get healthier if you stop eating sodium-heavy foods on DASH (read: the crap straight from the box with a bunch of ingredients you can’t pronounce). Of course, the Mediterranean diet is great (have you seen what Spanish, Italian, or Greek women eat for breakfast? They take a tiny piece of toast and DIP it in a cup of extra virgin olive oil, alongside with their eggs, meats, and veggies). I am trying to be quite politically correct here without bashing the fact that the majority all of these diets include grains. After all, not everyone can commit to a grain-free living. So what is the best diet? How to choose the best diet plan that will work for you?
