Mark Sisson of Primal Blueprint on national TV tonight on Rock Center!

    Dear Dr. Gerber, I’ve just had a heated discussion with my friend, who after looking at Mark’s Daily Apple website concluded the whole principle (and the diet itself) are a fad. His strongest argument was that no doctor would ever back up a diet like this and that it holds no scientific or medical value whatsoever. So, being that I am extremely competitive, I decided to put the concept to a test, and hopefully prove my friend wrong. Would you be willing to share your view of the diet, from a medicinal point of view?
    Thanks in advance,

    Ante from Croatia

    • Ante – There is only a small percent of the population 1%-2% who have a true Gluten allergy expressed as celiac disease. We do antibody testing TGA, AGA for this rare condition. These patients get sick when they eat Gluten. Consider that these celiac patients have the worst expression of wheat intolerance!

      However wheat and other grain products are bad for everyone because of the carbohydrate content. There are also more subtle inflammatory issues related to the proteins and then issues related to anti-nutrients like phytates.

      We should just avoid grains especially wheat all together.

  • Not a word about wheat free, grain free or Paleo in the story that aired on TV tonight. Disappointing!
