Tips for gluten-free success over wicked  Halloween temptation.

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.

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.
