Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

Studies schmudies.

All I know is that I can WOD faster with more weight, I lose weight, and I can ride harder and faster when I'm not eating wheat.

I am mostly in agreement with this statement.....

But, I dont use WOD as a verb , and I think the issue may have more to do with "junk carbs" than gluten.

I get bloated, dont sleep well, feel weaker etc when I eat wheat.....maybe its gluten, maybe not. Maybe its junk carbs, maybe not. But, bread seems to be the culprit, so I avoid it.

I try to be as gluten free as possible, but I am not a carb-o-phobe. A bowl of oatmeal (gluten free, of course) with a cut-up apple in it is about as good a start to a day as possible.

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

There is objective evidence suggesting gluten can modulate depression in non-celiac populations. With any diet, there's always positives and negatives.

My ability to "portion control" when it comes to breads, sweets, cookies, brownies, etc is pretty much ZIP, so this has been a super way for me to reduce empty calories and emphasize better quality foods in my diet.

My niece has celiac disease, so yes, getting a little bloaty after a large pizza is far from it, LOL

I do think people are oversimplifying the whole matter. Gluten itself may not be a big issue for a lot of people who feel "sensitive" to wheat, but wheat and gluten aren't the same thing. Wheat contains a lot of stuff that doesn't well with everybody's gut, so while a lot of people who have classified themselves as "gluten sensitive" may not actually be gluten sensitive, they are probably still wheat sensitive on the carbohydrate and fermentables side of the equation.

Mark's Daily Apple has done some good articles on "FODMAPS" that explain this and I think this argument makes TONS of sense. To me, it explains why I may not feel wonderful eating a birthday cake but a couple beers are no problem, or why I can eat a slice of watermelon with no trouble but if I tuck into a good size portion then it's time to party. LOL
I am the same way in that I cannot control portion sizes.. I avoid all processed foods. I've found now that I cannot eat anything like pizza or bread, and not only do I get bloated but there is a lot of pain with it too.

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

Did anyone read the full study or just abstracts and articles about the study?

All I've read are a few of the messages in this thread.

Bottom line is, based on anecdotal evidence I've gathered from a few acquaintances, is that people who went gluten-free resolved issues related to digestion, cramping, bloating, etc., and in instances when they ate gluten products the problems returned very soon afterward.

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

About 15 years ago I went on the Atkins diet. No wheat wile on that diet.
I noticed after about a month that my sinus allergies went away and also the Ocular Migraines after about six months.
Every time I add in any gluten to my Diet they return almost immediately.
Minor things like brain fog and sleepiness after eating a meal very noticeable also.

My two cents

Who needs science when there are bloggers and gurus out there?

Re: Time to jump off that gluten free train...

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/23253599/

Gluten exclusion (protein complex present in many cereals) has been proposed as an option for the prevention of diseases other than coeliac disease

The data suggests that diet gluten exclusion should be tested as a new dietary approach to prevent the development of obesity and metabolic disorders.
