So I’m at the doctor’s office last week filling out the usual 37 pages of forms that I’ve filled out 83 times before. In the waiting room, The Chew is showing on the TV.
I don’t pay too much attention to it…until I hear the word “gluten” and my celiac ears are intrigued.
The question posed was this: Should the average person at home cut gluten out of their diets?
Interesting question and was curious of their response. Well, only one person responded. It was Michael Symon and yowsa did he have some strong feelings on the matter.
Check this out…
Kudos to Michael for shouting out the truth. Backs up pretty much I everything I said on my “Stop Eating Gluten Free Foods” post.
I love his passion. I love the fact he mentions gluten intolerance (though selfishly, would have loved to hear celiac get a shout out). I love how he takes down highly processed food.
We live in a strange world folks where everyone is looking for a shortcut, for that one magic solution, to lose weight. And in the past few years, that shortcut has been “gluten-free”.
Newsflash: There are no shortcuts. Eat less. Exercise more. Everything in moderation.
And if eating gluten-free makes you feel better, by all means go for it.
Just don’t get sucked into the BS that just because it’s gluten-free, it’s automatically healthier.
(Stepping off my soapbox….now.)
