You can’t help but escape the new labels and badges that are attributed to foods and supermarket aisles. Or to people checking food labels, asking in restaurants and making sure that they are not going to be glutened mistakenly.
The rate of change over the past 5 years has been huge and your granny would laugh her bloomers off if she knew the fuss we go to to get food these days. But is it all a hype and a marketing con, or is there some truth in the gluten free phenomena that is sweeping right now?
In my opinion, from personal experience, from the reading I do and real life examples I’ve seen with clients over the last 7 years of FastTrack Fit Camp — there is a detrimental effect with gluten that goes way beyond a bit of stomach discomfort and embarrassing wind for many people.
Health issues that have long been ‘undiagnosable’ but when gluten has been removed have gone. Or for clients who lose whopping amounts of inches in our 6 Week Feel Good Challenge from their stomach and belly (it really isn’t fat loss, not that much that quickly!), to those who have more energy, sleep better and poo regularly all leaving them feeling just…better.
The issue for us compared to our granny is that when she was making bread and cakes at home the variety of wheat was way different to that of today. The hybridisation of wheat varieties since then has allowed us to produce disease resistant crops, with higher yields and quicker growing times — and all the while without any real human testing to see how this would be tolerated by us.
These changes have altered the gluten and it is now being shown through medical research to have long term implications on brain health, cognitive function, risk of diabetes, poor weight management, fertility, digestive disorders and, like I experienced undiagnosed for 18 years,..skin rashes and conditions.
I’ve seen too many people benefit from dropping gluten to think this is just a fad or a phase. I’ve also read too many books and articles on how the long term damage from gluten is affecting many people because they just didn’t know.
As such I am hosting a free ‘Just Why Should I Go Gluten Free?’ event on Sunday 3 Julyat 10:00 – 11:15 in Winnersh. Seats are free, it’s open to all and I want to share with you why gluten isn’t just about stomach bloating and how you can make changes to your diet simply by bringing in food tasters and samples and giving you an opportunity to ask questions about how and whether you should go gluten free.
I do need to know how many are coming for seating and so you can reserve your place here if you’d like to come along.
And if you do fancy losing inches from your waist in 6 weeks like our campers do on our 6 Week Feel Good Challenge you can give it a go from Monday 6 June or Monday 13 June when we start our next batch of challenges.
It costs £127.00 (inc VAT) and includes all your meal plans, unlimited access to Fit Camp sessions, before and after check-in appointments and online and off-line support. It’s a great way to see if Fit Camp is for you and to get a good head start on a healthier, feel good lifestyle.
