I hear about more people going gluten free, wheat free, caveman diets, etc. all the time. Obviously the word is getting out that the old standards are not healthy and not working. Still there is lots of misinformation. Last night my 16yo DD got a magazine from the library and within 5 sec. of glancing at an acne article, declared she was going vegan. Now I've been doing this diet since Jan. 9, and have seen lots of success, even losing 25#. I had the Wheat Belly book here and handed it to her because there is a section on acne. So she says, "Will I lose weight?" (sigh) After taking a look, she was convinced to try a month-my success didn't matter even though my complexion has improved too, considering bombardment by HRT in the past month. By the way she plays soccer and is not overweight for her body type.She is lactose intolerant and doesn't use much dairy. Needs the lean protein.
Are dietary schools changing the thoughts? What do people know about things like genetically modified soy and round up ready grains? Is the general population getting more aware or is health food still a granola bar? Are we getting it right (obviously we believe we are or we wouldn't be here) but will the recommendations change and keep this all from becoming a passing fad? My kids don't go to public school, but say they did, would their lunch be looked down upon for not being food pyramid friendly?Excuse my typos, puter is down and tablet typing sucks.

My take: it's getting better, but we have a long way to go and there is a tremendous amount of confusion and misinformation.
