Kobe Bryant Takes the Lakers Gluten-free

Celiac.com 01/20/2014 - Word is out that Kobe Bryant is looking to help the Los Angeles Lakers shed weight with high protein, gluten-free, Paleo-style diet plan that is high in healthy fats.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons--Keith AllisonIn an interview with the Healthy Home Economist, LA Lakers trainer Gary Vitti says that Kobe's diet is rich in grass-fed beef and free-range eggs, and that any food containing corn syrup or gluten is strictly forbidden.

The article quotes Vitti as reciting the dangers of a low-fat diet, and saying that "Kobe is not following the USDA Food Pyramid – in fact, he’s following the inverse."

Says Vitti, Kobe is focused on "getting traditional fats into his diet and the wrong fats out."

The Lakers even have a name for their plan. It’s called PRO Nutrition, short for Performance, Recovery and Orthogenesis. The diet has many Laker players boasting of faster injury recovery, and less joint soreness than last season.

So will the gluten-free, high-fat, high protein diet pay dividends for the Lakers? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below, and stay tuned.

While I appreciate the product development that comes from so many going GF, I am very concerned about it being tied to fad diets such as Paleo. The two should be treated quite differently: One is a life-and-death situation for millions of people, while the other is yet another in a long line of scientifically unsupported lifestyle choices.

You really should read the science behind the "Paleo diet" and whole foods movement. The low-fat diet, supported by the USDA for the last forty years, is the true fad diet.

these sound like celiac reactions yes ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction always and find your self a great natural practitioner and rebuild your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet Good Luck

Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me. I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific. I wondered if anyone else had this problem. I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!? I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case! Thankyoy steph

I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this. I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist. Today marks day 23 of diarrhea. Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse. I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little. If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C. The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly.

Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
