It’s been over two months now since I went not just gluten free, but grain free. I did it back at the beginning of 2013, for about three weeks, and now I’ve done it again, since Oct. 26. I haven’t seen any weight loss. That’s why I did it. I don’t have any aches or pains or digestive issues. I’m bummed that the weight hasn’t come off, but maybe I am doing “internal healing,” as some people have suggested. The two benefits I see already are that I can eat much less to feel full (as long as I stick to my ketogenic diet) and that I don’t experience the nasty cycle of craving sugar and carbs, such as bread, then eating it, then having high blood sugar, and then hitting the low blood sugar blues. I got through Christmas with my high fat fudge. I can only eat a few pieces and then I feel full, which is something I can never do with mainstream fudge or any mainstream sweet treat.
I’m still learning a lot about the benefits of being gluten free and grain free. I listened to some of the sessions of The Gluten Summit in November, but I didn’t catch all of them. I was sooo happy to hear from the organizer, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, that he’s keeping some of the sessions up for free on his web site. Click the titles below to watch. He’s also doing a free webinar next week called “Now That You Know, Where Do You Go?”
Watch the video and listen to the sessions as your homework to prepare for this informative, life-changing webinar. I think
WHEN: Thursday, January 9 – Sunday, January 12
WHERE: We’ll announce the FREE link as we get closer to the dates!
To get the most from this free webinar…
I’m giving you some homework to do!
In the webinar I’m going to assume you’ve done your homework so we can go directly into more technical information. Nothing like this has been done before, so if you take the time I promise you will not be disappointed!
I’m asking you to do 6 things in the next few weeks. Get one or two done before your busy holiday season kicks in and the rest will follow!
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT 1
Watch this entertaining and informative video (5 minutes, 28 seconds) about gut microbes from National Public Radio (NPR). This is a CRITICAL concept if you want to understand how to move toward optimum health.
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS 2-6
Because these 5 interviews from The Gluten Summit are particularly relevant to the discussion we will have in the webinar, I’m making them available online again for FREE!
