Olympic Gold medal connection to gluten-free diet

I  love sports. At CrossFit, tennis and running I see a big difference in my endurance, focus and lean muscle mass due to a gluten-free diet. I eat lots of vegetables, fruit, healthy fats and high quality protein, meat or Shaklee protein shakes.

Dana Vollmer  just won her first Gold Medal at the Olympics.  A Gluten-free diet made a huge difference for her. See how eating gluten-free affected her swimming and overall health.

Blooming Sassy digestion – You are what you absorb

  • 60 – 70 MILLION people are affected by digestive diseases, with a price tag of $107 BILLION DOLLARS

I was prompted to focus on healthy digestion after speaking with a client who was not absorbing her nutrients. Eating sugar, processed foods, gluten/wheat products, stress and running through life were all slowing down her ability to absorb healthy nutrition.

Nedra Sahr, M.S., C.N.S. discusses  tips on increasing absorption and feeling better due to your body receiving what it is craving, nutrients for the cells.

Beyond gluten & wheat free for ideal weight

I enjoyed living  gluten & wheat free for a many years. Then I realized even gluten free grains were making me feel tired, achy,and I was gaining weight every time I indulged in gluten-free grains.

Experimenting with eliminating grains from my diet has brought me to a new plateau with quick weight loss and a bolt of new-found energy. Just like when I gave up gluten & wheat foods it has taken me time to except that grains add-on the pounds and make me feel unhealthy. 

This week has been a turning point for me. I now accept that my body does not do well when I take in any source of grains. This was huge to finally accept that, and to stop testing the  gluten-free grain filled foods. I am done.  I have felt so good for years, maintained my ideal weight, except when I add any grains.  Well, I am ready to treat my body as the temple that it is, maintain my ideal weight, be filled with energy, mental  clarity, and  live without bloating and digestive upset.

Thank goodness I was turned on to the Paleo diet and have numerous, easy to prepare, delicious recipes that are grain free, dairy-free and sugar-free.  I am always grateful for my Shaklee gluten-free food supplements, nontoxic cleaners and paraben free skin and personal care products.

Monday’s Gluten Free Meeting

Once a month in our area we have a meeting for those who are wondering if gluten/wheat is the cause for many of their health issues, and those who have discovered it has. We had 6 new people Monday night, our 3rd meeting. How cool is that!

Having stomach aches every day for 35 years I did not know it was the gluten/wheat that were the culprits. What a relief when I started paying attention to my body and connecting running to the bathroom, or headaches or itchy skin to eating the gluten/wheat. 5 years ago when I went gluten/wheat free there were very few people to share information with or foods in the stores that gave me new choices. Now, look what’s happened. More and more people are connecting their issues to these grains and the stores and online offer lots of choices.
Soon to be announced I will open up a conference line once a month for people all over the country meet and share resources, recipes and ideas on how to enjoy a gluten/wheat free lifestyle. Stay tuned…

I would love your input on what has worked for you adjusting to living Gluten free or any questions you may have.
