Besides seeming to be on twitter all day (@glutenfreecity), I have been trying to read about gluten, celiac disease and various diets. As you have probably experienced in your research, there are several “in progress” books on my desk and Kindle. Here is my current reading list:
- Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis — About a quarter of the way through. The story of how modern wheat (last 30 years or so) has so much more gluten than previous wheat is scary.
- Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free by Jules E. Dowler Shepard — Just started this today. Going well, nothing too scary, yet.
- Against the Grain by Jax Peters Lowell — Just got this today, haven’t started it. “The slightly eccentric guide to living well without gluten or wheat” is the subtitle. In the grand scheme of Gluten Free books, it is one of the older ones, but I have read good things about it.
- Optimal Digestive Health (A Complete Guide) by Nichols/Faass — My leaky gut is not gonna fix itself, so when I saw this huge reference book, I had to buy it. Even if it only has one good article, it is worth it.
- The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf — I have been reading chapters at random. I need to just do a complete read of this. We have been eating Paleo (Well, Kim has, I am on my way, though) so the more info I get the better.
- I was POISONED by my body by Gloria Gilbere — This has a chapter on leaky gut, so it is on the list of things to read.
- Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes — I know he is a polarizing figure in the fructose/glucose scientific world, but I think his exposing of mid-century food studies that demonized fat makes this a worthy read. I tried to read his previous book, Good Calories, Bad Calories, but couldn’t get through it. Kim has read both and says this one is way more accessible.
- And, finally, Under the Dome by Stephen King — Man cannot live by science alone. Sometimes you need a creepy little town in Maine…
