The Gluten Lie
And Other Myths About What You EatBook - 2015
Gluten is not the enemy--and neither are salt, sugar, fat, or any foods we eliminate in the quest for optimum health. In fact, most of what we believe about nutrition is based on myth and superstition, not proven science. It's time to stop feeling guilty and start enjoying our food again. Author Alan Levinovitz shows why our problem is not what we eat, but how we eat: full of anxiety about dietary villains like pizza, pasta, steak, and snacks. Unless you suffer from celiac disease or a similar affliction, a proper diet can and should include your favorite foods--and a dose of skepticism for the latest miracle cure. Our food beliefs are shaped not by hard data, but by age-old myths and the lies we are told by huckster physicians. How do we know what to believe? Levinovitz gives you the power to evaluate the latest research for real direction, instead of being led around the grocery store in circles. The Gluten lie will help you put the bun back on your burger, stop giving into the latest diet fads, and live a happier, healthier, more delicious life--Adapted from book jacket.
