Nima testing: “Gluten-free” Steak

It’s late September, but you’d think it was summer judging by the 90-degree days we’ve been having. So I had dinner in the Third Ward section of Milwaukee, a bustling, revitalized previously industrial area, in the street-front patio at an Italian restaurant called Onesto. I ordered an Aged Filet steak labeled “GF” for gluten-free on the menu and tested it with the Nima gluten-testing device. The steak was served on a bed of thinly-shaved zucchini and thin sauce of “cremini compound butter” and what looked like shaved Parmesan cheese.

Here was the result:

The next Wheat Belly Detox CHALLENGE begins Wednesday, October 4th!

Through my New York Times bestseller, Wheat Belly, millions of people learned how to reverse years of chronic health problems by removing wheat from their daily diets. Now, I have created an easy and accessible 10-Day Detox Program.

The Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox supplies you with carefully designed meal plans and delicious recipes to fully eliminate wheat and related grains in the shortest time possible. Perfect for those who may have fallen off the wagon or for newcomers who need a jump-start for weight loss, this new addition to the Wheat Belly phenomenon guides you through the complete 10-Day Detox experience.

Mini Chocolate Eclairs

Yes: Chocolate Eclairs fit into your Wheat Belly lifestyle!

Minus wheat/grains and added sugar, we once again convert a fattening, unhealthy indulgence into a healthy treat that you can serve proudly to family and friends knowing that, unlike their grain-based counterparts, you will not be adding to inflammation, gastrointestinal disruption, or mind/emotional effects.

I took this recipe from the Wheat Belly 30-Minute Cookbook with some slight modifications. (I simplified preparation slightly.) I also used a more luxurious Chocolate Glaze rather than plain chocolate, also from the recipe in the Cookbook (along with other sauces, glazes, and jams).

Calcium Supplements— Don’t waste your money

 

Calcium supplements have no role in the Undoctored/Wheat Belly lifestyle. For years, doctors have advised people to supplement calcium to prevent bone thinning and osteoporotic fractures based on the simple reasoning that if something is lacking, taking more of it must be the solution. But clinical trials have repeatedly demonstrated virtually no benefit with calcium supplementation— no slowing of bone thinning, no reduction of osteoporotic fractures.

Likewise, people who consume plentiful dairy products containing calcium do not have better bone health. One thing that people who supplement calcium do have is more death from heart disease. It should be a familiar theme by now: Not only has conventional advice not worked, it is responsible for causing health problems.
