Gluten Free Diets and Body Weight Part 1

Should you ditch gluten to lose weight? Or could going gluten-free cause you to pile on the pounds instead? Before you bin that fresh loaf of bread, let’s study the latest scientific research to see if excluding gluten makes you lose (or gain) weight!

In this module you will learn…

  • If excluding gluten can make you gain weight
  • Whether gluten-free eating is better or worse for weight loss
  • The key findings from top research papers on this topic
  • Which additional factors need to be considered when studying gluten and body weight

Gluten Free Diets and Body Weight Part 2

Contrary to popular belief, switching to a gluten-free practice is more likely to lead to weight gain than weight loss. But, how can going gluten-free lead to weight gain? Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty, and see if there’s a way to avoid gaining weight, should you decide to go gluten-free!

In this module you will learn…

  • When gluten-free eating might lead to weight gain
  • The biological mechanisms that connect gluten to changes in our body weight
  • Which benefits, and potential dangers, can arise from going gluten-free
  • How to minimise weight gain on a gluten-free diet

Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity Diagnostics

What is Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) really? Besides being a common self-diagnosis, what do we know about it from a scientific perspective? Is it a form of coeliac disease, or something else entirely?

In this module you will learn…

  • Whether there’s an “official” diagnostic procedure for uncovering a gluten sensitivity
  • What coeliac disease is and how it differs from non-coeliac gluten sensitivity
  • The symptoms associated with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity
  • Which criteria can be used to diagnose gluten sensitivity and whether self-diagnosis should be discarded

Good Science Beats Junk Science.

(or... Why You'll Want To Study With Us Scientists)

When most people consume junk articles and bad science, our learners want the truth.

Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we’re here to filter out the fads.
We have a very strict research and review process. For example, when we touch on a controversial topic, citing a single piece of research can be confusing. That’s why, in the absence of consensus, we compile studies to show you both sides.
The findings are thoroughly investigated and based on studies vetted for scientific integrity, which have a higher probability of being accurate.
This way, we avoid bad science and deliver proven research to you.

Get Smarter. Sound Smarter.

Maybe you navigated thousands of health and nutrition websites. You found contradictions, not answers. So what is true? And what isn't?

Maybe you found some self-declared “evidence-based” blog, to later realise they are pseudo-scientific… or worse: fear-mongers. The problem is, when you repeat what you read in there, you risk sounding incoherent, or may end up hysterically defending points you barely understand yourself…
So, how can you get the credibility you want?
In this continuing education program, we’ll not only teach you proven science-based concepts, but show you the context and what it all means in practical terms. This way, when you talk to others, you’ll be spreading reliable information and earning the respect that you deserve.

Enjoy a Unique Learning Experience.

No more internet hangovers. A smooth experience with everything in one place.
