Not yet convinced to give up grains?
I have just finished watching this quirky and very informative 33 minute video on You Tube called Get Out of the Gluten Glut. The video (see link below) features Anne Buzzelli who is a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition from Bastyr University in Seattle. She has a private nutrition practice in Staunton, Virginia called BuzzNutrition.
She presents some fascinating facts about grains (especially wheat) such as:
- the wheat we eat today is genetically so different from ancient wheat that our bodies can’t even recognise it
- genetic modification of wheat has never been tested for safety
- what is gluten and how does it affect our health?
- grains contain toxic compounds which makes us sick
- wheat can cause inflammation and immune responses
- grains can cause weight gain, especially visceral (belly) fat which is hard to lose and dangerous to your health and
- then lastly she also touches on celiac disease and gluten sensitivity
Well worth a watch – even if it is just for its quirkiness and entertainment value!
I especially recommend it for those who need the final motivation to ditch grains. Want to lose weight, fix your flatulence problem and build a stronger immune system? Tired of your irritable bowel, bloated stomach or frequent bouts of diarrhea? Watch this video NOW.
