Dont toy with glycemic index Dr. William Davis

Carbs 123rf

Here is a discussion I first posted in my Wheat Belly Total Health book, chapter 7: Grainless Living Day-to-Day.

Glycemic index, or GI, describes how high blood sugar climbs over 90 minutes after consuming a food compared to glucose.

The GI of a chicken drumstick? Zero: No impact on blood sugar. How about three fried eggs? Zero, too. This is true for other meats, oils and fats, seeds, mushrooms, and non-starchy vegetables. You eat any of these foods and blood sugar doesnt budge, no glycation phenomena follow, no glucotoxic or lipotoxic damage to such things as your pancreas.

There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the concept of GI nor of the related concept, glycemic load, GL, a measure that also factors in the quantity of food. The problem is how the values for GI and GL are interpreted. For instance, categories of GI are arbitrarily broken down into:

High glycemic index: 70 or greater
Moderate glycemic index: 56-69
Low glycemic index: 55 or less

This is like being a little bit more or less pregnant. By this scheme, cornflakes, puffed rice, and pretzels have high GIs above 70, thereby sending your blood sugar through the roof, while whole grain bread, oatmeal, and rice have low GIs. A typical non-diabetic person consuming a typical serving of cornflakes, e.g., 1 cup cereal in cup milk, will thereby experience a blood sugar in the neighborhood of 180 mg/dlvery high and more than sufficient to set the process of glycation and glucotoxicity on fire, add to adrenal disruption, cataract formation, destruction of cartilage, hypertension, heart disease, and neurological deterioration or dementia. (Blood sugars will vary, of course, depending on body weight, degree of overweight, insulin sensitivity, time of day, and other factors, but this would be typical. Someone with pre-diabetes or diabetes will have a higher blood sugar.)

How about a low-glycemic index food, such as a bowl of oatmeal, 1 cup cooked, in cup milk? A typical response: blood sugar 170 mg/dllower, yes, but still quite awful, triggering all the same undesirable phenomena triggered by the...

Coffee Could Combat Parkinson's and Dementia Natural Remedies

Coffee could combat Parkinson's and dementia: Scientists discover two compounds in the pick-me-up prevent the toxic accumulation of proteins in the brain.

Coffee could combat both Parkinson's disease and a form of dementia, research suggests.

Two compounds, including caffeine, in the pick-me-up work together to prevent the accumulation of a toxic protein in the brains of mice.

This protein, known as alpha-synuclein, is associated with both Parkinson's and dementia with lewy bodies (DLB).

Tests on rodents genetically at risk of both diseases showed the combination of caffeine and the compound EHT prevented alpha-synuclein from building-up after just six months. Read more


Chlorine exposure causes asthma attacks, but Vitamin C can neutralize it Get Holistic Health

The consumption of chlorine changes HDL (good) cholesterol into LDL cholesterol, creates oxidative damage throughout a body, acts as an immunosuppressant, causes severe arterial damage, and it destroys the fatty acids that are needed for heart health.

Cilantro-Spinach Pesto (Dairy-Free, Nut-Free) The Weston A. Price Foundation

Please tell me that Im not the only one who has an awesome idea only to find that you have nothing on hand to bring that idea to fruition. As I cut up fresh veggies to bring along for a picnic lunch last week, I had such a moment. Wanting to entice my little ones to eat veggies and wanting to ease my own boredom of the same-old, same-old chopped carrots and cucumbers, I had the thought to make pesto. Not difficult, and really, who doesnt have the ingredients on hand? Me, thats who. Not a single nut or seed to be found. Oh, and no basil either! Some foodie I am.

Preparation (Spinach)

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Dump spinach into boiling water and leave for a couple of minutes.
  • Remove spinach with tongs and submerge into cold water.
  • Remove spinach from water and place on a towel to air dry.


  • 5 cups packed spinach, prepared (see above) 
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 -1/2 cup oil (I used a combination of extra virgin olive oil and flax oil)
  • unrefined sea salt (to taste)


  1. Two cups at a time, process spinach in food processor.
  2. Add cilantro, garlic and lemon juice to processor and blend.
  3. While processor is spinning, drizzle oil in until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Add sea salt to taste.
  5. Store in sealed container in the fridge.

Latest News The Weston A. Price Foundation

Dear Members,

 As the year comes to a close, we are sending you an update on upcoming WAPF activities and to ask your generosity in your end-of-year giving.


As a member, you should have received your Shopping Guide for 2019, which now lists 7,000 products and is available both as a flip book and a searchable app. Countless hours of work go into keeping the list of products current. The Shopping Guide not only provides a much-needed service for members saving you research time, but also is creating customers for hundreds of family farms and artisan food producers.

You can use the Shopping Guide to join us in a collective New Years resolution: that all of us spend at least 50 percent of our food budget purchasing directly from local farms and artisan producers.  This is the best way to defeat the forces of corporate agriculture and bring back a sane, equitable and healthy food supply.


A big focus in 2019 will be the FDA Citizen Petition seeking to lift the interstate ban on raw butter for human consumption. The Weston A. Price Foundation is working with the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund and Communities Alliance for Responsible Eco-agriculture (CARE) to pay for the services of James Turner, Esq., to lead this effort. Turner is no stranger to the FDA, having dealt with the agency on various matters since the 1960s. If Turner cant convince FDA to file a substantive response to the petition, he will likely file a writ of mandamus motion in a federal district court to have the court compel FDA to respond. If FDA rejects the petition, petitioners can appeal the agencys decision to a federal appellate court.

The butter petition is a great opportunity to weaken the interstate raw dairy bana significant step towards the day when the transport of all dairy products across state lines is legal. Jim Turner has the experience and abi...

Wheat Belly Redux: Dramatic facial skin changes Dr. William Davis

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 10.13.43 PM

With this Wheat Belly Blog post, I begin an occasional series of posts from the earlier days of the Wheat Belly experience that nonetheless provide some powerful lessons on the effects of this lifestyle.

Here is a post from Dawn from 2014 that perfectly illustrates what wheat and grain consumption can do to skin health.

Left = summer, 2013. Right = today. Started Wheat Belly March 20th, 2014. Lost 25 lbs by July and have maintained ever since. I cant say enough about this lifestyle.

Beyond the 25 pound weight loss, what I find striking are the changes in Dawns skin: the redness is gone and there is visibly less facial edema. Dawn looks dramatically different minus wheat and grains.

We see this with some frequency around here and it reflects the loss of body-wide inflammation, most readily evident on the skin. Inflammation on the skin is often paralleled by inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract and elsewhere. Though she doesnt elaborate, Id be willing to bet that Dawn also experienced some important improvement in gastrointestinal symptoms, especially acid reflux, bowel urgency, and bloating.

Regardless, you can appreciate just how dramatic the change has been for Dawns appearance. This is yet another example of how eliminating wheat and grains from the diet does not just achieve substantial weight loss, but also yields outsized improvements in healthbecause they never belonged in the human diet in the first place.
