Loaf Lie #5: “There is No Such Thing as a Healthy Loaf of Bread”

If all this bread bashing has caused you to reluctantly swear off buns, biscuits, bagels and baguettes forever, I understand. After all, if whole-grain and most gluten-free breads are bad for you… what else is there?

Well, I have great news…

You Don’t Have to Choose Between Your “Daily Bread”And Being Healthy
You Just Have to Choose Healthy Bread!

What if you could sink your teeth into a hot stack of French toast… a sandwich thick enough to make Dagwood proud… a chewy bagel…. or a crusty piece of fresh-baked focaccia…

And what if these delicious real-food breads were not only gluten-free… but low glycemic too?

When you choose bread made with “intelligent ingredients” it can actually protect – not wreck – your health.

It can even help you sculpt a lean physique… instead of puffing up your muffin top!

And I’m not talking about weak imitations. I’m talking about REAL bread so delicious you’ll swear that it’s bad for you.

And you won’t believe just how easy it can be…

You will find real bread recipes and good artisan bakers if you look for them.
Don’t simply swap cheap, nasty supermarket bread with cheap nasty gluten free products.

Eat Clean. Train Smart. Expect Results.

Poisoned By Bread? November 14, 2014

Loaf Lie #2: “Gluten-Free Bread is Healthier than Bread Made from Wheat”

If you’ve already given up traditional grain-based foods, you’ve made a wise decision!

But if you replaced these foods with their commercial gluten-free counterparts, reconsider.

You see, most gluten-free breads, cereals, pastas, crackers and cookies use ingredients that are not much better (and in some cases, worse) than those made with wheat!

Like any processed junk food, these products usually contain chemical preservatives, soy protein, dough conditioners, industrial seed oils, corn and rice syrup… and often, GMOs.

And that’s not all, because…

The Ingredients in Most Gluten-Free Products Will Also Send Your Blood Sugar Soaring!
In place of wheat flour, most gluten-free products – and many online recipes for that matter – use flours with glycemic values that are off the charts, including:

Corn Starch
Rice Flour
Potato Starch
Tapioca Starch
Sorghum flour
Millet
Here’s what Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, has to say about these unhealthy alternatives…

“These powdered starches are among the few foods that increase blood sugar higher than even whole wheat. It means these foods trigger weight gain in the abdomen, increased blood sugars, insulin resistance, diabetes, cataracts, and arthritis. They are NOT healthy replacements for wheat.”

Take a look at how some common gluten-free foods impact your blood sugar…

It should come as no surprise that…

Most people GAIN WEIGHT on a gluten-free diet.
In fact, one study showed that 81% of people who adopted a gluten-free diet had gained weight after two years!

You should also know that…

Some Gluten-Free Products Contain 90 Times More Arsenic Than the EPA Allows for Drinking Water!

Of course, you know that arsenic is a deadly poison…

But you might not know that many gluten free baked goods contain potentially toxic levels of it!

The problem comes mostly from brown rice flour and brown rice syrup, often major ingredients in gluten-free baking mixes, breads, crackers, chips and pasta.

In fact, analysis conducted by Consumer Reports showed that some popular gluten-free products contain up to 90 times the arsenic allowed in drinking water!

Of course, the same risk applies if you’re using brown rice products in your recipes at home.

Chronic arsenic exposure – even at very low levels – can lead to headaches, fatigue, brain fog and digestive issues… not to mention heart disease, cancer, respiratory illness and diabetes.

Keep this in mind the next time you hear that “gluten-free bread is healthier than bread made with wheat.”

Eat Clean. Train Smart. Expect Results.
