Ever since I tried eating no gluten as an experiment a few years back, I’ve been really interested in what’s up with it.
I’ve heard doctors and nutritionists go back and forth about it.
I’ve heard friends’ stories about how it destroyed their health.
And I’ve seen the effects it’s had on my own body as an athlete.
But at the end of the day, I’m still a good old Ohio boy who was raised on pasta, pizza, and doughnuts and I still want to eat those things sometimes.
So I brought an expert on The School of Greatness to get the facts straight about what gluten actually is, whether it’s as bad as people say, and what the best workaround is.
Dr. Peter Osborne knows what’s up when it comes to gluten.
He is trained as a chiropractor and nutritionist and is passionate about getting to the bottom of auto-immune diseases and helping people get their health back.
I asked him every question I could think of about gluten and what his recommendations are – and he delivered.
If you’ve been having the same questions about your diet, or just thinking about cutting out gluten as an experiment, this episode is a gold mine.
Here to pull back the covers on gluten and what it does (or doesn’t) do to our bodies is Dr. Peter Osborne in Episode 282.
