What's the deal with gluten free foods? Why can't some people eat gluten?

What's the deal with gluten free foods? Why can't some people eat gluten?

Real disease: Maybe 1% of people have autoantibodies against gut and/or skin that are produced in response to gluten in the diet. These people's illnesses, which are severe, vanish on removal of gluten. This has persuaded others that restriction will do the same for them. They may be right; we await hard science on this. It's become a "pop" restricted diet. Be discerning if you try without a physician's input. ...Read more

You can get actual results and make actual friends by spending time doing aerobic fitness in a gym, on a racing team, or on an athletic field. Do yourself a favor and try this approach instead. ...Read more

Are potatoes good for a low calorie diet?

Are potatoes good for a low calorie diet?

It's all relative.: For very low calorie diets, potatoes are relatively high calorie [1 cup of diced potato is 55 calories] compared to 1 serving of turnips or even better deal cooked radishes/daikon. But potatoes are a good deal compared to 1/2 cup of white rice [120 calories], 1 cup of noodles, bread or bagels. So it depends on how low you're trying to go. ...Read more

Will gluten free diet shrink a thyroid nodule?

Will gluten free diet shrink a thyroid nodule?

No: No. There is little you can do to shrink a nodule. Some docs put you on levothyroxine to "rest" the thyroid in the hopes it will shrink, but it usually does not work. If the nodule is benign (needs ultrasound and biopsy), don't worry about it. See your endocrinologist. ...Read more

Does a gluten free diet give you health benefits?

Does a gluten free diet give you health benefits?

Probably not: Nobody knows what percentage of people are gluten-sensitive (celiac sprue / dermatitis herpetiformis). Because these people respond so dramatically to a gluten-free diet, and because any claim will attract believers, a gluten-free diet is now being promoted for everything. If there is any benefit for the non-allergic, it has resisted demonstration to the satisfaction of most scientists. ...Read more

My roommate keeps on snacking. She's eating lots of vegetables but gives up eating rice. How can I help her to practise a healthy diet? She's 19.

Here's an idea: I'm glad you care. Nobody likes to be told what to do, especially when you're almost grown up. Actually, i'm glad she's doing vegetables -- many folks don't. Rice isn't essential and neither is the traditional 3 meals per day. If she's becoming obese she probably would like a good model. The best you can do is invite her to eat out with you and offer her / suggest healthy stuff. ...Read more
