I read an intro to her book on an amazon page. I applaud her for getting folks to eat better, mentioning KILLER INFLAMMATION *for most doctors play it down to the detriment of their patients, and for eliminating those items that cause sensitivities.
What I didn't care for was what is allowed: PROCESSED.
Can't wrap my head around that at all - perhaps today you are NOT suffering from a reaction from the bromide in bakery items. The genetically modified ingredients. The synthetic enrichment. Or are you? Unless you have a window to your digestion, there could be some real problems brewing.
I don't mean to sound critical - but I have been there. I opted out of the processed foods chain-for my health's sake. The allowed federal government approved suggested amounts of GRAINS and DAIRY and it almost killed me.
I don't trust anyone that suggests any -food- that contains over 8 items and is wrapped in a can or wrapper full of BPA - whether allowed by the FDA or not.
I was tested for allergies and know what I may have issues with. Some might be healthy broccoli. But chances are, I will find a way to include them every so often for the nutritional and some times CANCER fighting qualities. There really is NO nutritive reason to eat chips, white bread, etc.
Oh, and by going organic, gluten-free and not eating anything that was made in a laboratory - I lost over 10 pounds and have kept it off for 7 years. (Even my red wine is organic. But I can take resveratrol and organic grapes without the damage to my liver)
But that's just how I look at food, health and weight loss.
