The first “sugar free” school in Sweden

haninge

No more birthday celebrations or treats and no more “fika”* for the grown ups.

This is a picture from one of the first sugar free schools in Sweden. No sugar, more physical activity and more play are the new prescriptions for the children in the schools in this area, just outside Stockholm.

I think the Sugar Initiative would be pleased.

This is the article in Swedish.

* Fika is a very important Swedish word which means coffee break; gathering for e.g. coffee or tea and something to it like cinnamon buns, cookies, or cakes. But, you can “fika” healthy too or just be social.

wheat

This is the second part of a two part series, check out the first post if you missed it, about when Dr. Davis asked his followers on Wheat Belly Facebook page:

Parents: What have you noticed in your CHILDREN who have gone wheat- and grain-free?

Our 5 1/2 year old is no longer falling asleep unexpectedly during the day. She is in better spirits, has no more sudden mucus-like bowel movements or diarrhea, has no more rashes on bottom or backs of arms and is overall soooo much better!!

Why we shouldn’t give gluten to kids! Part 1

bread

It makes me sad to hear about children with health problems; many of them are so young and already struggling with health issues. Read some of the quotes below for answers to why many of our children, and many of us, should not eat grains. Tell me afterwards; do you think becoming grain-free is a fad diet or is it a lifestyle worth trying for a period of time to see what will happen?

On October 21st Dr. Davis asked his Wheat Belly followers:

Parents: What have you noticed in your CHILDREN who have gone wheat and grain free?

Here are their comments:

My daughter went grain free in 8th grade. She lost 50 pounds, cut minutes off her mile time, and hardly ever gets sick. She is a senior now and has maintained her weight and her grain free lifestyle. She has not cheated in 4 years.

To Juice or not to juice?

Yes, they are here again! Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive and Abel James, the Fat-burning Man. Now they are discussing juicing, to be or not to be and what to eat according to them.

I´m not a “juicer” myself but I could see, while living in the U.S. that it has been a big deal and probably still is.

HOW TO GET WELL FROM…EVERYTHING, PROBABLY!

gluten

By now, you know that I love success stories and one of my favorite Facebook pages is Wheat Belly. When they recently asked their amazing followers if they had experienced a reduction or reversal of any AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION with wheat/grain elimination?

They got these amazing comments:

I have lowered my thyroid antibodies from over 400 to 298 after one year wheat free. Keeping in mind that I have had Hashimoto’s for 20 Years and didn’t know about my wheat allergy, a 25% reduction is a decent improvement in only one year. Down 85 pounds now…

Exercise better, not longer

I love these laid-back conversations between Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive, and Abel James, the Fat-Burning Man. I think they have a very “healthy” view on exercise. After many years of experience they know what to eat and they know how to exercise to feel “great.”

In case you missed their talk about the perfect diet, you can view it here.

Have you found your perfect diet?

Have you found your perfect diet yet? Which should be for the rest of your life so that’s why I often prefer to call it “lifestyle” instead of a diet. Paleo, LCHF (low carb healthy fat)………

This is a laid-back conversation between Dave Asprey, the Bulletproof Executive and Abel James, the Fat-burning Man. Two “high performance” men discussing food and health. As they say:

If you are not thinking, then you will be doing it wrong

If you are on Paleo and start to eat processed foods marked “Paleo”, think again. It´s still processed food! Don’t be fooled into eat highly processed foods marked “low carb”, “Paleo”, “Vegan”, or even “gluten free.”

What’s the perfect diet for you?
