This is quite the rude wake up call for me.
I had no idea what to put for the thread title, my eyes are just about to close on me.
I've been gluten free and dairy free since the end of October.. and it's amazing. I feel great, my moods have increased. I am not depressed anymore.. My digestive issues are great. Best decision ever!
p.s.. you should read WHEAT BELLY.
That's inspiring! Dairy will be a tough one for me, esp now that I've started drinking eggnogg. Oh man, no eggs at all, eh?
Wheat Belly is 90% bullshit...
Thanks to books like David Perlmutter's Grain Brain and William Davis' Wheat Belly, the gluten-free food market is a multi-billion-dollar industry.
Some so-called experts are painting gluten as a bad boy of the food world that supposedly causes obesity, Alzheimers, heart disease. It may sound like a staggering claim, but the public is eating it up. Gluten-free books are flying off the shelves. Gluten-free trade expos are bring in mobs of people.
Registered Dietitians find the anti-gluten media coverage hard to swallow. In this web-only feature interview, Dr. Brian Goldman talks to Kate Comeau, a Montreal-based registered dietitian who works for Dietitians of Canada. She's frustrated by clients with an appetite for all things gluten-free when in reality less than ten-percent of the population actually benefits from removing gluten from their diet.
What about for breakfast? I love omelettes.
There's no doubt that healthier eating and increasing consumptions of certain foods and nutrients can help improve one's general feeling of wellness. However that doesn't mean that dairy and gluten consumption (at least with those that do not have auto-immune disorders) is the root cause of that depression.all i know is how i feel and how my depression is gone and it's thanks to eating healthy and cutting out Gluten/Dairy.
Wheat Belly is 90% bullshit, as is all this fanatical paleo nonsense. Anyone who believes that at any point in time humans were perfectly adapted to their environment has another thing coming. Further, the world is huge and history is full of myriad civilizations subsisting on nearly infinite variations of diets many of which included wheat.
Sure, wheat is a sugar and we ingest way too much sugar so cutting that back can be a good thing! But those that line behind these diets as some sort of return to our 'natural state' are ignoring so much history, evolutionary biology and behavioural psychology that's it is infuriating.
i think its great that people are seeing an improvement in function (physical or mental) with diatary changes. Whatever works.
But have you ever though that the improvement isn't due to the reduction of certain food type and the inclusion of more fruits and vegetables?
This seems be be what most articles and scientific data is saying about the "myth" of a sensitivity.
