Rob Wolf and the least bad scaling idea?

I can't remember which podcast it was but he talked about if people really seem to tolerate gluten and other non paleo foods after reintroduction then they could be very healthy with a mixed diet along as nutrient dense food did not become the bulk of their diet as we see in SAD's

It was the 32nd day of paleo so I decided to go gluten and crap overboard and drank lots of beer, ate tonnes of food as we were at a funeral and the entire family had a big party in his honour and i ate and drank with no thought of paleo.

Basically I have no bad symptoms today and feel great. I am kinda confused as to why because I could of sworn i would be in the demographic who were gluten sensitive.

Now I have reintroduced foods and not had bad reactions I am thinking how to add them back in in a sensible manner.

I was thinking maybe:

breakfast - 3 eggs - 3 pieces of toast - butter - coffee

lunch - fish or poultry or red meat with some green vegetables and tubers - rice if i fancy it.

dinner - lean meat with salad

The major problem with wheat in modern food is the high glycemic carbs, which confect cheaply and well into every sort of hyperpalatable food. Very few people are allergic to the wheat's protein (gluten). Like casein, gluten is more difficult to digest than meat or fish protein.

You mean as long as nutrient poor food does not make up a majority of calories.

There's nothing wrong with gluten per set. If it agrees with you (as it does for the vast majority, think close to 98%) then there little reason to avoid it as long as other nutritional needs are met.

In fact there is a nonzero amount if nutrition in grains often things that may be somewhat low on a paleo diet (Cu, Mn, Mg, B complex vitamins, etc.)

If you like something non-paleo you can work it in as long as you don't have an intolerance for it.

Ultimately, it's a matter of immunity. When you're a baby... bugs start to colonize, some of them are not pathogenic and your body decides not to fight them... this process continues until you have flora... then plants are introduced... each one has phytotoxins and your body has to decide how to deal with it. Your young liver has to start producing enzymes to detox them. Perfectly normal. Gluten is one of these toxins in the sense that the body can never fully digest it and must deal with it to eliminate it before enough immune system harm is done. Over a lifetime, maybe it will never get to a point where it is a problem for you. For millions of people that has been the case. But for millions of others, they've had unrecognized illness because it was a problem and they were told it wasn't, and they believed it.

Your plan is perfectly reasonable for a plan to reintroduce gluten in moderate amounts. But consider this... are you eating gluten more often than fish? If so, you might want o rethink your plan and prioritize based on nutrition, not flavor or comfort.

Lunch and dinner sound tasty. I would just eat more of that, throw some boiled eggs in the salad, and nix breakfast.
