Best way to figure out if you got a problem with gluten is to do what we're about to teach you about, so walk me through a gluten free diet, what's the best way to do it? Okay, there just three things that you need to be concerned about, wheat, rye and barley. Now those are the foods that contain the gluten, the problem is that traces of them can be in a lot of other foods, you go online and you see the thousand things you have to avoid, you can go crazy, let me make it easier for you.

Please do. Any food that is just one ingredient does not have gluten in it, if it's something like broccoli or grape fruit or all the fruits, the lentils and so forth, you know exactly what's in it, there is no ingredient label, it's going to be easy for you to be gluten free.

So let's walk through this, this is not a deprivation diet, I can tell you, you'll lose weight on a gluten-free diet if you do it the right way, do it the wrong way you'll probably gain weight. So single ingredient products, generally speaking of good food, we've talked about produce, meats and fish are fine.

Dairy is reasonable as well, lentils, nuts, rice, corn and of course you get to have chocolate, is that good news?. [APPLAUSE].
