The ever-present leviathan in the American diet is the vast number of highly processed grain products we consume every day. Due to this constant overload, it's estimated that up to half of all Americans, including many of our children, now suffer from a host of gluten-related health problems, which are often misdiagnosed. Renowned cardiologist and creator of The South Beach Diet, Dr. Arthur Agatston, clears up the confusion and presents a solution that could transform your diet and your life.
Phase 1 of the original South Beach Diet, which cut out all sugar and grains (including gluten-containing grains), was intended to control swings in blood pressure that led to cravings. It became apparent, however, that the diet curbed not only the urge to reach for the chips, but also brain fog, bloat, aches and pains, and numerous other ailments that have turned out to be directly tied to gluten sensitivity. The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution shows that by being gluten-aware, not gluten-phobic, you can dramatically increase weight loss and health in just 30 days. With detailed, effective meal plans, travel and dining tips, inspiring stories, and 20 delicious gluten-free recipes, readers will have everything they need to lose weight, feel great, and not give up the foods they love.
