That what I was thinking! :lol: On the other hand, something like that should put an end to the idea that people actually choose to eat gluten-free food as one chooses to eat vegetarian food or something! :blink::lol:

No..she said that eating food with gluten is like swallowing shards of glass...it slices off the villi making it impossible to get the nutrients....interesting analogy...it was not what I was hoping for, but at least it is out there. They did say that healthy people should not stick to a gluten-free diet as they do not get enough fiber and B-12.

Such poor information. B12 doesnt come from gluten foods unless they are fortified. Doh!!

And there is plenty of fiber in fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, other grains........

That is what I hate about these programs....filled with stuff that is only 1/2 right or not at all.

Such poor information.

I agree!!! My kids are SOOOO much healthier than any other kid in their classes! We focus so much on whole foods that they are getting probably more fiber and vitamins than they need.

I'm so glad someone used the word "glass". This is similar to what my daughter has said in describing her pain, glass, or blades, but it isn't in swallowing, it's usually by the time it's trying to digest.

I agree! I am so much healthier than most people because of all the fresh, natural foods I eat. (fruit, veggies, etc....) Since going gluten free 2 years ago, I haven't gotten sick once (with the exception of the occasional accidental gluten-ing)!
