Free yourself from anxiety about what you eat. In The Gluten Lie, Alan Levinovitz shows why our problem is not what we eat, but how we eat. Unless you suffer from celiac disease or a similar affliction, a proper diet can and should include your favorite foods - and a dose of skepticism for the latest miracle cure. We've been told all our lives that we need to eliminate the foods we love in order to lose weight and get healthy. But food fears are based on myths, not science - and the truth will surprise and liberate you. Bread and Pasta - Going gluten-free is a recipe for improving your brain and losing your belly fat. The truth is that no dietary demons have been proven to make us fat and stupid - but there's a long history of snake-oil salesman that claim they do. Salty Snacks - Cutting salt prevents heart disease. Even if that were true - which it isn't - the guidelines set by the American Heart Association make it impossible to eat anything resembling normal food. Dessert - Sugar is addictive. The real addiction is believing that sugar is toxic - a falsehood that was around in the 1800s, when Prohibitionists called it a gateway drug to alcohol.
