If you're new here, you should subscribe to my RSS feed. It's Free and Easy. See you soon!

I just did a kick-butt interview with Jen Finlay, Author of Gluten Free Belly (she offers a free 7-day gluten-free challenge at the bottom of that page… VERY COOL)

UPDATE: here is the link to the interview page => Gluten-Free Health and Fat Loss Interview

And this interview we just did will help you – even if you only “suspect” you are allergic to glutens to some degree. You’ll understand why when you listen to what she reveals in the interview…

I know for a fact it’s going to help the type of person who is “stuck” and frustrated about putting so much time and energy into doing the right things – but still not reaching their goals…

We even get into other ’symptoms’ glutens can create – such as:

- bad skin
- headaches
- low-energy
- insomnia
- mental fogginess
- constipation
- and more….

Until then – I have 3 things for you:

1 – Why Jen Knows Her Stuff When It Comes to This Confusing Topic
2a – Great Article On Shocking Stats and – 2b. 7 Keys to Gluten-Free Fat-Loss
3 – A Very Insightful Q&A (question submitted by Ella & Frank Rizzo)

First: Why Jen Knows Her Stuff…

The key to Jen’s background is this fact: As a fitness pro and trainer she personally suffered for years from a gluten intolerance which slowly got worse over time – until she had no choice but to dig into the topic and figure out what she needed to do to overcome this food related allergy.

By living through this experience on a personal level, Jen has been able to translate this into a gluten-specific approach to meal planning for fitness, weight loss and awesome energy – simply through a modern approach to managing the glutens in your eating habits.

Most people reading this understand the topic of Gluten intolerance, food allergies and gluten-free nutrition. But for those who don’t…

Shocking Stats In the Growth of Gluten Free Foods and Interest

The report ‘Gluten-Free Foods and Beverages in the U.S. 3rd Edition’ projects that U.S. sales of gluten-free foods and beverages will exceed $5 billion by 2015.

According to the 210 page report “Gluten-free” has become an identity for the tens of millions of Americans who have reduced or eliminated their consumption of wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Indeed, consumer demand has driven the extraordinary surge in the market for gluten-free foods and beverages. Many people are gluten-free out of necessity, because they suffer from celiac disease or a food allergy.

But a growing number are gluten-free by choice, as evidence emerges that this diet may treat medical conditions ranging from autism in children to rheumatoid arthritis in adults….

Others find that living gluten-free simply makes them feel better. An online survey conducted expressly for the report Gluten-free Foods and Beverages in the U.S. reveals the number-one motivation for buying gluten-free food products is – they are considered healthier than their conventional counterparts.

Specialty marketers like Glutino, Pamela’s Products, and Kinnikinnick Foods have exploded onto the mainstream scene, and health-oriented companies such as Bob’s Red Mill and Amy’s Kitchen have demonstrated a commitment to producing reliably gluten-free foods.

Due to their growing retail presence, as well as to continual improvements in gluten-free products overall, the report estimates the U.S. market for gluten-free foods and beverages at $2.6 billion in 2010, for a compound annual growth rate of 30% over the 2006-2010 period.

7 Keys to The Gluten-Free Lifestyle for Optimal Health & Fat-Loss

As you’re creating your Gluten-Free nutrition strategy – these are the critical areas to focus on:

1 – Identify the glutens you are now eating on a daily basis
2 – Learn the easiest ways to take the glutens out, and replace them with the right alternatives
3 – Conversion tips to transform your favorite personal recipes into Gluten-Free versions
4 – Which companies create gluten free foods and how to locate them in the supermarket or online
5 – The quick tricks for label-reading; so you can spot glutens in a snap and avoid them
6 – Which restaurants have high gluten menus and which ones serve low gluten meals
7 – You need to know what to order when dining out

When you get this going – it’s all connected and it simply becomes your ‘eating lifestyle’…

    Hey Joey,

    I work at a Pool with fitness Center. I created an info board a few weeks back. I just posted on this article. I hope it gives some of our patrons a nudge in the right direction. I see so many people killing themselves in the gym & going nowhere as far as weight-loss. Perhaps this post will give them another avenue to investigate.

    Thank you for promoting understanding and education about this pervasive problem that affects sooo many people, including me. There is life after gluten, and it can be really delicious.

    [...] who prompted me to cover this topic is Myra Parson – a long time subscriber. After I posted PART 1 of The Gluten Series on my facebook page she immediately sent me this message: Joey you are [...]

    This is great, I think I’m coeliac and I’ve already got PCO. The coeliac thing seems to get worse as you get older and now I have a persistent little belly – can’t wait to see what you come up with! (I’m veggie too) It’s interesting that although coeliac relates to the intestine it is known to cause so many other problems such as joint pain, fatigue and stunted growth, every time I read another article about gluten intolerance it seems to explain another of my symptoms.

    Thanks Joey!

    Hello every one,

    I am here to tell you how much my life has changed without all the grains our “smart ones” are pushing.

    For some the glutein sensitivity can be so high when it is ignored for a long time, that one can’t even eat organicly grown grain fed meat.
    It must be grass fed.

    That is my case.
    If i ate a slice of bread before i gained 2-3 lbs. overnight and felt as if i was 6 months pregneant. It looked thatway too.
    Now i eat pasture raised chickens, their eggs, and grass fed beef, period. Naturaly i must watch the veggies also and fruits, as they contain some. No dairy.
    Lost 115 lbs. in a year.

    Thank you for all the wonderful informals.

    Hi eva you said fruits and veggies have some to did you mean gluten if so what kind of them have it or what did you mean

  14. Allison Says:

    Great article! Have just started GF eating ( three weeks) feeling great, more energy, sleep better, eczema gone… Just a few comments though. No fruits or vegetables contain gluten. It is a protein found in wheat and a few other grains ie barley.
    In the article I think you should distinguish between wheat free and GLUTEN free as it can be misleading. All wheat has gluten but not all the gluten out there is found only in wheat. A lot of people remove just wheat from their diets and achieve great health improvements while true Celiac must be hyper vigilant in reading labels . For them it is not just about weight loss ( most are pretty thin due to malabsorption issues) but about life and death and a bleeding bowel etc.
    No organic farmer worth his name would feed an animal wheat so if someone sold you that you were ripped off. Feeding animals in the pasture ie grass feeding is what organic beef farming is all about. Grass fed is soo much better for you any way, on many levels. It is worth the extra cost.
    Please, everyone before you start eliminating foods educate yourselves thoroughly as much as possible.

    I went on a one month gluten-free challenge 12 years ago and haven’t gone back. The symptoms listed in this article have improved greatly. I wish it solved all my health problems, but I am still working on it! I have made many other healthful choices over the years too.
