* Why there is a 40-96% increased risk of suicide in children with celiac disease versus non-celiac children.
* How people with celiac disease who consume gluten once a month are six times more likely to die early in life compared to the general population. Wait until you hear how much gluten we’re talking about!
* Why kids diagnosed with celiac disease are three times more likely to die early in life with or without a gluten-free diet.
Check out the video below to hear Dr. Tom tell it. Share your thoughts and comments below!
Did you hit the snooze button repeatedly until you had to get up, or did you jump out of bed eager to attack your day?
Did you turn to artificial energy — caffeine and sugar — to put some pep in your step, or were your batteries completely recharged from a good night’s sleep?
Did you feel like a rock — static and inert — or did you feel like a rock star?
I tell ya, if you’re not feeling like a rock star all day, every day, then you’re probably not living your best life– and that’s no fun.
Maybe you’re getting to bed too late.
Maybe the automatic negative thoughts in your head (ANTs) are wearing you down.
Or maybe you’re just not feeling passionate about your occupation, and dread showing up to work for another eight to nine hours of trading misery for a paycheck.
The circumstances standing between you and rock stardom abound. But with a few tweaks here and there, I can almost guarantee that your energy and vitality can shoot to the top of the charts.
And I’m not talking about any one hit wonders here. No, I’m talking crazy longevity. Think Jay-Z, Ice-T, or LL Cool J — those guys have been rocking it for decades in one form or another.
In about a month or so, I’ll be officially launching my new website, where I’ll be sharing tips on how to live a rock star life by getting your mind right and following your passion.
Today, we’ll stick with food. Because when you eat well, you sleep deeper, think clearer, and even have enough energy to get through your workday with enough gas in tank to do what YOU want to do after clocking out.
Last night, my friend Kathy Smart stopped by UW Radio to share a handful of tried-and-true tips for feeling like a rock star. Check these out…
Do yourself a favor and remove gluten — a protein found in wheat, barley, oats, rye — from your diet for thirty days. I know, it sounds like a really long time to go without these staples. Just try it.
The first week will be challenging to get through, but I promise that ninety-percent of those who eliminate these foods will feel so amazing that they’ll never want to consume gluten ever again.
Nothing worth doing is ever easy at first. If you’re serious about your impending rock stardom, you’ll give it a shot and stick with it.
Add These Superfoods.
When you get rid of the gluten, you’ll have to replace those foods with some healthy alternatives — and I don’t mean gluten-free goodies like cookies, breads, and muffins. Not even. Those are usually worse than their gluten-containing counterparts.
Whenever I go to the market, every couple of weeks I make it a point to purchase something I’ve never tried before. Who knows, I may have been missing out on something for the past 35 years! I’ve discovered some pretty rad foods like dulse, chia, and asian pears this way.
So next time you’re strolling down the grocery store aisles, pick up one of these foods…
Avocado. Super yummy and contains more potassium than a banana, thus fighting high blood pressure.
Seaweed. Loaded with trace minerals and iodine (for your thyroid, of course). Also high in calcium and iron. If you’re ever at a Japanese restaurant, order the seaweed salad. Totally rocks!
Chia seeds. Sprinkle on a salad, or add to a healthy smoothie. Your digestive system will thank you!
Cruciferous vegetables. These include broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and more. They stimulate the detoxification system, neutralize carcinogenic in your body, and lower circulating estrogen levels. I spent three years testing hormone levels, and found that many of my male clients had sky-high estrogen scores. Guys, eat more broccoli!!! It’ll make a man out of you.

Exercise, But Don’t Over-Exercise.
Although it sounds counterintuitive, more exercise is not always better. Too much cardio can actually burn out your adrenal glands and pack more fat on you. Yes, exercise can make you fatter!
Stick with a good 15-20 minutes of interval training, then head over to the weight room (or the park, backyard, beach, or living room) for some weight training — bodyweight movements, squats, lunges, kettlebells, push-ups, pull-ups, etc.
No one ever became a rock star overnight, it takes time. The above recommendations are a great place to start your journey. Once you get a taste of how it feels to absolutely crush your day with energy, passion, and a smile, you will be addicted for life. Why live any other way?

The Underground Wellness train keeps chugging along this week with the following events…

Wednesday — How to Become a Health Detective webinar hosted by Reed Davis and yours truly. Learn how you can get certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist (FDN). This course changed my life! Without FDN, there would be no Paleo Summit! Click HERE for details.
Thursday — UW Radio LIVE with Dr. Jack Kruse. Can’t get enough of the doc! Click HERE for details.
This very well may be my favorite day of the summit.
Because I love Paul Jaminet, am totally fascinated with how gluten can affect more than just your gut, and because I didn’t want to make this summit a total Paleo Love Fest.
Disagreement can be a good thing. It’s how we learn from each other.
In Room 3, Matt Stone presents on why he thinks the Paleo Diet is a giant FAIL for a lot of people. According to Matt, Paleo is a short-term fix that may lead to adrenal problems, lowered metabolism, reduced libido, anxiety, and more.
Can Matt sway your opinion of Paleo? View his presentation RIGHT HERE!
Room 2 is where you’ll find my own personal favorite summit presentation by Dr. Tom O’Bryan.
The most basic Paleo recommendation is to avoid gluten. However, there are a lot of people who have gluten sensitivity with no digestive symptoms at all! Dr. O’Bryan connects the dots linking gluten consumption, autoimmune disease, muscle pain, and bone loss. This one is sure to blow your mind!
And like I said, disagreement can be a good thing. Tomorrow, Nora Gedgaudas cross-examines Paul’s evolutionary evidence, sharing what she agrees and disagrees with.
This Paleo Summit is getting interesting!
Hope you guys are loving it as much as I am.
As promised, we have updated the presentation rooms with Facebook comments. Look out for a new regular comment system that gives you the ability to reply to other posts. Should be up in a few hours.
