There are a lot of different reasons people are getting fat... but there is such a thing as gluten/carb intolerance:
Are you saying that whole grains are a reason some people are getting fat due to carb intolerance?
I think people are getting fat for a few reasons listed below
They are mentally unable to exercise
They are physically unable to exercise
They are excuse whores who choose not to exercise
They are just purely not into it
They exercise for the wrong reasons and quit to early
Now eating the wrong foods can definitely have an impact on ability but that's where they just need to change things up a little in their intake. It doesn't even take that much of a dramatic change either.
So if a majority of our research studies are financed by large corporations, then where does that leave us? Do not take research findings as "gospel".
I sat through a 3 hour workshop with Glen a few months back, it was very informative -- he also talked about nutritonal typing...
You are right, gluten has been a part of the diet for 1,000s of years, yet only recently we are experience this sensitivity, or intolerance in some people. The reason for that is because of the commercial growing of wheat. The gluten protein is what essientially holds the bread together, so obviously the more gluten, the better the quality of bread. There is just simply MORE gluten in the wheat today than there was 1,000s of years ago and that is the reason for the sensitivity.... when a person who is intolerant to gluten eats it, it is almost like a parisite has gotten into the body... the body attacks it and this is what causes most of the problems... impaired immune function, digestive problems, and possibly adrenal problems as well.
Here is an article I stumbled across a few months back that can explain it a lot more than I can...

I pointed out, about a year ago, that I feel better when I'm 0-20 carbs per day. I'm not lactose intolerant, I don't have to pop Tums like candy and I don't have 5 bowel movements a day. Wow. I guess I'm gonna give this a try. I get weird rashes and skin issues, too. Hmmm.
Anyone know where I can find this??Licorice Root Cream can be rubbed on the abdominal as it will aid in burning fat from the stomach. The trade name is called Glycgel.
licorice root??? ive heard this increases estrogen..now im confused
I wonder if any little thing that boost my immune system is really going to make fatloss easier along with muscle building?
Like other have stated i like some things that were stated but not all. Good read. Keeps you thinking
Is that licorice root cream legit? Does any one have any experience with this?
Noticed this article was super old, but would like to add my .02 anyway.
I don't think 75% of Americans are carb or gluten intolerant. I think 75% of Americans eat way more than their body needs...I mean, if you ever feel stuffed, and you don't work out, you ate too much. That and 75% of food consumed in the US is utter crap o.O
The 'moulds' he refers to in peanut butters are not visible moulds but are aflatoxins/mycotoxins.
Bacya: Glycgel was sold by Thorne Research but actually discontinued some time ago. You can purchase Licorice Lysine Plus by Wise Woman Herbals- this is the brand that CP sells and the only reputable brand of licorice cream I could find. I have heard of many practitioners using it with great success, I am using it now but haven't been using it long enough to pass judgement. On a side note I have been told anecdotally that it seems to work best on people who are already fairly lean i.e., abdominal skinfold is less than 15mm.
I hope this helps
