Most of us have heard of the term gluten-free and some of us are actually incorporating this into our lifestyle. For those of you that have followed the OH Detox you know that eliminating wheat is a major part of detoxing. While eliminating just wheat isn’t technically going “gluten-free” it is in most cases pretty darn close.
Why would you consider going gluten-free? We found a short video with Dr. Davis author of Wheat Belly and a short interview that summarizes the topic very well.
So why is eliminating wheat so helpful for weight loss? Wheat has a high glycemic index which raises blood sugar.
Two slices of whole wheat bread raises blood sugar higher than six teaspoons of table sugar or a Snickers Bar.
I think we would all agree that eating sugar or Snickers Bars would not be a good choice for our health or losing weight.
So take a moment to watch the short video and if you have time read the article. We think that it could be the best 8 minutes you invest in your health this week!
Love to all,
Donna and Daniela
