Bread & Pasta’s Grasp: The Real Danger behind some of your Favorite Foods

“Wait…you want me to give up WHAT?”

Oftentimes, when it comes to making lifestyle changes, we have to sacrifice some of our favorite foods to help achieve our wellness goals.

Our beloved bread and pasta can be difficult foods to part with.

Both are particularly tough because pasta and bread are intimately associated with many ethnic diets, from Italy to France and especially here in the United States.  They are such an inherent part of our culture, that it seems CRAZY to even consider reducing our intake much less, giving them up for good!!!

There are three great reasons.  You might want to consider it if you…

  1. Want to lose weight quicker and more effortlessly than ever before.
  2. Want to feel better. Moved better, feel less stuff stiff, and have more energy.
  3. Potentially live longer, while enjoying a higher quality of life.

Even though bread and pasta are delicious and can be tough to completely cut out, the reason they are so harmful is because of gluten.  Gluten is a buzz word we have all heard lately.  So, what is it and why has it become an issue over the past several decades?

Gluten is a protein found in most all grains.  It allows bread to be spongy and hold its shape.  Why gluten itself has become an issue is a little bit complicated.

For some members of the population, a number that has increased by 400% in the last 50 years, gluten causes an autoimmune response.  Some individuals suffer from Celiac disease, the worst autoimmune response which can cause internal disruptions that last for hours or days just from a speck of gluten.

Between gluten sensitivity that we just talked about and the complications of a carbohydrate-rich diet, we have a significant increase in conditions such as:

  • Digestive issues such as gas, bloating, diarrhea and even constipation
  • Keratosis Pilaris (also known as “chicken skin” on the back of your arms)
  • Fatigue and brain fog

We understand that giving up pasta and bread can be difficult, but we want to help you every step of the way in achieving all of your health and wellness goals.  For more information on how you can stay away from gluten’s grasp, call our office at 845-344-0444 or visit our website at
