Episode Info

Episode Info: Gluten-free diets are big business! We are spending billions of dollars each year on everything from gluten-free cereals to snacks to breads and desserts. And these foods often cost more than twice as much as the regular fare! But are we really benefitting from paying extra to eliminate this controversial protein or are we just wrapped up in another food fad? “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by dietician Lee Crosby who has the answers on this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast! Lee shares everything you need to know about gluten: what it is, what foods have it, who should avoid it, the surprisingly small percentage of the population affected by Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity, and why eliminating it from your diet unnecessarily could actually put your health at risk! You’ll also learn about the other proteins in wheat that the body can be sensitive to! You can visit Lee at the Barnard Medical Center for consultation of your diet. --- --- Chuck Carroll Twitter: @ChuckCarrollWLC IG: @ChuckCarrollWLC Facebook: --- --- Physicians Committee Twitter: @PCRM IG: @PhysiciansCommittee Facebook: --- --- Lee Crosby Twitter: @veggie_quest IG: @leeatveggiequest --- --- Celiac Disease Foundation --- --- Study: Avoiding Meat Reduces Medical Expenses --- --- The National Health Expenditure Accounts Healthcare Spending: --- --- Share the Show Please subscribe and give the show a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or many other podcast providers.
