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.

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.

I am confused too. I appears that your blood panel was indeterminate, but that your NP had you on a grain free diet for five weeks prior. You went back on gluten for two weeks (recommendation is 2 to 4) for the endoscopy. Maybe it was not enough time for your antibodies to build up and start a...

I looked at your past posts, but I?m not sure i know what you were eating then and what you?ve stopped eating now. Also what sort of medical workups you?ve had and what were the results. I understand your biopsy was negative - but I also saw on one post that you were worried they only took one bi...

I've posted a few different topics, so I thought I would just update in one post. I am seeing my GP later today, but apparently my biopsy results were negative. I have no further information on this. What I do know, is that I have been feeling much worse since giving up gluten after my gluten cha...

It doesn't change DH, but it always makes me smile thinking someone means Dear Husband instead of the rash.

It's done this since I started on here, many years ago. Kind of funny when people type g f meaning girlfriend...... ?
