    Abel,
    I’ve been listening to your podcast episodes during my gym workouts , they are a great listen and make my workout go much faster .. thx much for sharing all your insights and experience. This one with Dr. Davis was eye-opening .. so, if you where to cut the wheat from your diet all together .. what would be your recommendation for an acceptable replacement for your night “cereal” ? .. any grain at all ? ( oats, etc. ) .. or any other replacement ? what would you take ? . thx much for your thoughts.

      Hi Roberto,
      Thanks for the kind words and so glad you’re enjoying the show. I’d recommend avoiding grains and replacing your calories with extra fat (butter, avocado, olive oil, nuts, etc.).

    My Dad worked with Norman Borlog when he won the Nobel Prize in plant breeding. The reason for the breeding was to eliminate starvation; It was to help humanity. Many years later, I was diagnosed with Celiac (gluten intolerance).
    I’m having a hard time believing that plant breeding causes wheat intolerance. Instead, I believe that it is the amount of food and the processed food that we eat. Plus, a certain gene has to be present for gluten intolerance. So, whether wheat is bred or grown as it was historically – the human biological intolerance in certain people would still be there.
    In a few years, I think that we will find that Celiac is like Diabetes – some bodies just can’t handle certain substances.
