Food Sensitivities

What is a gluten-free diet? What is Paleo? What is the raw diet? What is vegan? There are a lot of diets out there, and I am going to help you learn which one is right for you.

Gluten-Free Diet

A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and triticale, a cross between wheat and rye. A gluten-free diet is primarily used to treat celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

Paleo

Paleo is a diet that excludes grains, dairy, sugar, legumes and white potatoes. It is used by those who are sensitive to more than gluten, like myself. Many people find that a Paleo lifestyle is very healing to their body. It is also used by many body builders because it helps to produce lean muscle mass.
