The “Bite Sized Education” Series
In this week’s two part episode we are unpacking the confusion surrounding “gut health” and defining the various buzz words associated with this concept such as food intolerance, food sensitivities, and food allergies. We are exploring how diet culture has hijacked this term and the glorification of restriction in our culture makes it easy to jump on the elimination band wagon without doing the proper medical or psychological evaluation needed to determine what is best for your body. We give you reflection questions to ask yourself before experimenting with elimination diets or testing out gut health myths from both a dietary and psychological angle.
Our amazing listeners also wrote in and in this episode we will answer the following question:
Dear Mom Genes,
I have a few friends who transitioned to a gluten free diet and claim they feel so much better. How do I know if this is actually healthy? I am so confused by the information out there that is telling me gluten free or dairy free is healthier and are unsure if I should try an elimination diet to see if I would actually feel better without these foods. Should my kids become gluten free if it will help them with hyperactivity? Should I cut out dairy if I have breakouts on my face? So many questions!! Help! Love, Confused Gluten Mama
