I was just wondering what the opinions are about occasion including brown rice pasta into my diet. My friend claim that it's a healthy grain seeing as it is made from brown rice.

    Hi Debra! Yes including some brown rice OR quinoa pasta is a great gluten free option. Keep grains to no more than 25% of your plate and at least 50% veggies, 25% healthy protein. Rotating source of grains/pasta is a good idea too - like sometimes brown rice, sometimes quinoa, sometimes organic corn, etc... Many good options at the store.

    Hi Stacy...just wanted to know why is gluten to be avoided? Is it such a bad food for weight loss? What does it do to you? Though I am on my 3rd juice ONLY reboot, I love wheat and would like to know why I should avoid it, so that whenever I have a craving for any thing made with wheat post my juice only, I have this at the back of my mind :)

    Hi Sunshine great question! Gluten certainly doesn't have to be avoided, many people tolerate whole wheat and other grains like barley well. For some with celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity which may include those with thyroid conditions, skin issues, autoimmune or other conditions, avoiding or limiting gluten can be helpful for weight management and overall wellness. During the transition post-juice we suggest first starting with gluten free grains then 2 days later grains with gluten if desired. This way it helps test if you are sensitive or not, like an elimination diet. Do you think you may have a gluten sensitivity or intolerance?

    Thank you so much Stacy. I don't think I have gluten sensitivity. I'm only thinking if it will effect my weight loss. Will it?
