A guy just wrote a book called The Gluten Lie. It’s like, “Really man?”

What he says in his book, we actually don’t disagree very much. He says people shouldn’t go on fad diets. I agree with that.

When someone asks me, “How should I go on a gluten-free diet?” Get the blood test to find out if you have a sensitivity to gluten. There’s a ton of info on the website—I wrote a handout that explains what to take to your doctor to get the right blood test…

In June, Swiss insurance provider, CSS Insurance announced that it would launch a pilot program to monitor its customers’ digital pedometers. Now that project is nearly halfway completed, the company’s higher-ups report that the results have been overwhelmingly positive—so positive, in fact, that the provider may soon start charging higher premiums for those who don’t meet their daily step quota or choose not to participate in the program, according to the Swiss news organization, The Local.

The pilot program, called MyStep, is the first of its kind by any insurer in Europe. The company monitors the step count of 2,000 people using digital pedometers like Fitbits or Apple Watches…

Dr. Tom O’Bryan is an internationally recognized speaker and workshop leader specializing in the complications of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, Celiac Disease, and Autoimmune Disease. He’s also a personal friend and one heck of a hiking companion.

It’s the toxic gluten in wheat, rye, and barley that’s bad for all humans. In fact, a study out of Harvard in pediatric neurology looked at four different groups:

  • Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (wherein gluten affects the brain, liver, kidney—anything other than the gut)
  • People on a gluten-free diet
  • And wheat-eaters

Research finds that working longer hours doesn’t make you more productive – ScienceAlert

When it comes to working consistent long hours without taking proper time off, like so many of us have accepted as the new normal these days, the research is clear – it’s not only a terrible idea for employees, but it also doesn’t provide any benefit to your boss or your company.

In fact, in a cruel twist of fate, people who regularly put in 80-hour work weeks can often end up less productive than staff members who head home at 5pm every day, the studies suggest…
