Wheat, weight gain & inflammation

Bloating, inflammation, aches, pains and an unpredictable gut, that was me years ago. I was truly indulging in foods that were slowly killing me and keeping unwanted pounds on.

This past weekend I visited dear friends and colleagues on their 70 acre horse farm in Virginia. Our host decided to cook all gluten-free so I could enjoy her cooking as well as the other guests. What a learning experience that was for her. She was shocked at how good the food was, all the recipes were delicious, easy and full of protein.  Everyone loved the meals she cooked.

Wheat is not the healthy grain our ancestors enjoyed.  In  William Davis, MD’s book Wheat Belly he states,that wheat has been genetically altered to provide processed-food manufacturers the greatest yield at the lowest cost. That means the wheat is nutritionally bankrupt and will cause blood sugar to spike more rapidly than eating pure table sugar and has addictive properties that cause us to ride a roller coaster of hunger, overeating and fatigue.

I love having protein, vegetables and or fruit with each meal. I am full for  4 hours (which is amazing since I have low blood sugar) My protein is either an organic source of meat or Shaklee CINCH protein meal replacement.

I am calling out to you. The person who craves breads and sugar products. Whose blood sugar rises and falls fast. Take one month and use our CINCH plan or organic meats, products to hold off the cravings in a healthy way, record your results and share them with us.  The two sites below have been helpful to others who have chosen to lose weight safely and get rid of the inflammation in their bodies.

Live presentation

“Living gluten & wheat free- first steps” was presented at Nutrition S’Mart in Pt. St. Lucie, Fl on Saturday. I began the presentation with asking everyone to state  in a few words why they came to this presentation.  All the areas of concern were addressed in my Powerpoint, it was so cool.  Inflammation, weight gain, bad stomach pains, lack of energy, and cravings for gluten and wheat products. There were more but those were some of the most common.

It was so rewarding to be able to have  information for people who have been struggling with irritating to life threatening symptoms with no answers as to what the cause may be. The group supported each other because they could identify with each other and their symptoms. There was a sense of relief that by taking gluten & wheat out of their diets they may be able to lose weight, bring down the inflammation, have symptoms disappear without taking medication just getting creative with their eating choices and taking high quality supplements to heal their bodies. 

The links and books I recommended with recipes and information were greatly appreciated. 

The group understood that if they were ready to give up instant gratification they may be free long-term of annoying aches and pains. They also grasped that healing their bodies was a necessity.  Explaining that I had done years of research before I decided on a high quality brand of vitamins that are gluten & wheat free, and manufactured by  a research and science company that has been a leader in the industry for over 54 years,   gave them reassurance that they did not have to spend time doing the research. They also loved the support and guidance I offer. 

We had a great time. After my presentation we moved to the other end of the store for a gluten & wheat free cooking class. We learned 2 simple recipes: Teff Banana Pancakes and Gluten free tabouli. Go to www..nutritionsmart.com for the recipes.
