Is Giving Up Gluten the Key to Weight Loss?

CautionlHave you been swept up in the first-of-the-year battle to lose weight?

Perhaps this has been a year-long struggle for you, but post holidays you’re not only 10 pounds heavier – you’re also bloated and still suffering from indigestion, due to all your holiday indulgences.

Given this common scenario, it’s no surprise that come January 1, a lot of people jump on the weight loss bandwagon.

The media will tell you that weight gain is all about calories and exercise and I’m here to tell you that just isn’t true.

The thing is, I’d like to see you actually lose weight this year!

And also banish those tummy troubles (instead of just talking about it).

Are you up for that?

If you’ve recently vowed that this is the year you’ll finally lose those extra pounds – welcome on board!

However, if you’ve also been told that the only sure-fire way to lose weight is to stop eating gluten, let me break this down for you.

Celiac Disease & Gluten-Sensitivity – Should You Be Tested?

CautionlDo you regularly experience any of these symptoms?

  • Digestive Complaints
  • Cramps, Bloating or Gas
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Joint Pain
  • Rash or Itching
  • Insomnia
  • Chemical Sensitivity
  • Memory Loss
  • Osteoporosis
  • Weight Gain
  • Mood Swings

Perhaps you know others who do?

While this list is by no means comprehensive, the thing to note is that NONE of these symptoms are NORMAL!

It’s also why it’s critically important to take a closer look at what you’re eating – and to know whether you have Celiac Disease – or non-celiac Gluten sensitivity.

While food sensitivities would also be great to test for, you want to rule out gluten first and foremost.

Here’s why:

Gluten-Related Disorders are known to be the cause behind almost every disease, or symptom within the human body – neurological disorders, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, – especially anything related to your thyroid – plus common age-related diseases such as osteoporosis.

The Gluten Summit 2014

Did you happen to catch the amazing line-up of speakers at The Gluten Summit last November?

I’m still sifting through the content, gleaning new nuggets of information every time I listen.

So, I was absolutely thrilled to learn that a follow-up event has been schedule for January 29 – February 2, 2014.

Titled “Now That You Know, Where Do You Go?”, you can register for FREE right here.

Personally, I can hardly wait!

OK, so who would benefit most from this online summit?

  • Anyone who has recently been diagnosed with a Gluten-related Disorder – such as Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS)
  • Someone who has not been diagnosed, but suspects they might be sensitive to gluten and/or other foods
  • The person who says “this doesn’t apply to me, my digestion is fine”. Cause, well – you never know.

Hint:  The symptoms of gluten sensitivity are often silent and can present anywhere in the human body – not just the gut.

Are you ready to tune in?
