- Sarah is filming a special project with the women of Autoimmune Paleo!
- A press release from the American Heart Association conference: Low Gluten Diets May Be Associated with Higher Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
- List is a press release on not yet published study.
- Lowest gluten had 13% increase of Type 2 Diabetes.
- There was no gluten free groups and these people weren’t pursuing a low gluten diet.
- Corrected for fiber intake, but no other risk factors
- This finding contradicts all other studies comparing gluten-free diets and Type 2 Diabetes.
- In fact recent study came out with mice that found gluten-free diets could be therapeutic for Type 2.
- No statistically higher risk of Type 2 for celiac disease patients as well
- Dr. Terry Wahls is out guest (12:43)
- It’s a special show today! We have Dr. Terry Wahls on! She’s a real deal real foods hero who maintains her Multiple Sclerosis with a whole foods diet!
- She is the author of The Wahls Protocol and the upcoming The Wahls Protocol: Cooking for Life
- Dr Wahls hasn’t seen the press release, but seems like something from the trend of trying to debunk gluten free as a fad diet.
- While it’s true that some gluten free people replace gluten foods with more expensive non-gluten grains, it is certainly not a nutrient deficient diet to replace gluten with vegetables like Dr. Wahls recommends
- Many study authors seem to be trying to design studies to debunk gluten free and their methods are flawed. Reading a press release or an abstract makes it difficult to figure out whether the study is valid.
- Stacy always ask what nutrients are you missing out on that you can’t get from things that are not grains?
- They took 4 studies that correlated a large number of chronic health issues and tracked self reported food frequency. They split the groups into high gluten, medium gluten and low gluten and found the 13% lower risk in the high gluten group
- If you are sensitive then a low amount of gluten could maintain high inflammation
- They didn’t report any other health condition correlation. Could this mean there is none?
- There are studies out there that find that paleo diets could be good for diabetes. So why take this one study as definitive?
- Dr. Wahl’s new book is The Wahls Protocol: Cooking for Life
- She found that people who wanted to do her protocol were have trouble learning how to shift to cooking this way.
- The book is full of resources, techniques and tips and recipes.
- It’s also designed around templates and techniques on how to adapt the templates to their own preferences.
