To Wheat Or Not To Wheat? “At the center of Davis’s argument is the idea that modern-day strains of wheat have been genetically (and harmfully) altered to such a degree that they barely resemble the ancient strains or even 1950s wheat. Today’s varieties, he contends, have a higher glycemic index, a factor in blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as new forms of gliadin, a component of gluten that Davis says is bad for everyone. One of gliadin’s worst offenses, he explains, is its association with inflammation, in particular creating a “leaky gut.” Gliadin “unlocks normal intestinal barriers,” he says. That leads to toxins entering your bloodstream, which triggers inflammation. Davis claims too that gliadin overstimulates appetite to the point where people eat some 440 more calories a day than they need—usually carbs. And, he adds, “gliadin binds to opioid receptors in the brain. It’s not the same response as you’d have to heroin or morphine; there’s no euphoria or pain relief. But there is appetite stimulation.”—-Sari Botton for Harper’s Bazaar.com
The 10,000 Swing Kettlebell Workout Here’s the PRINTABLE version of the Dan John article that was published in TNation.com. For those who are interested.
Dan John, the author of the 10,000 Swing Kettlebell Workout, comments on the workout below. The comment is from the StrongFirst Forum. I was searching for comments from those who are well into the workout or who have completed it. Getting a comment from Dan John was priceless especially since he addresses the topic of altering the workout. There’s something about human nature that makes us want to change a workout program because somehow we’ll make it better than the program’s author.
What is it about people who have been training for a few months or a couple of years that make them smarter than the coaches who have a lifetime of experience?
