    Magnesium oil helps with the bumps on the back of the arms. My sister & I have them also. She told me what it was called (keratosis pilaraus sp?) I didn’t know it could be related to wheat sensitivity. I still get them even though I’m low carb/wheat free.

    Good interview. Really liked hearing about how you guys address feeding your kids. Not going crazy with low carb but just keeping sugar as an occasional treat and keeping the focus on real food. I keep my carbs lower than my wife and we don’t really watch how many are kids eat. Just try to make home cooked meals as much as we can that provide a protein, vegetable, and fruit.

    Breakfast has been the losing battle in our house. I have been encouraging the kids to try to eat eggs or something that isn’t cereal more but it doesn’t go too well. We do keep them away from the cereal that goes crazy with sugar. I know even the lower sugar kids cereal is still mostly refined grains but at least the ones we try to stick to isn’t that plus a bunch more sugar on top of it. They also still get their fair share of chicken nuggets, fish sticks, and macaroni. However candy, donuts, and chips are a pretty rare thing for them. Their holiday candy usually gets old and thrown out after only getting a few snack times with it.

    One critic on the kids show I did have is to maybe get them some different shirts to wear. The black “Wheat is Murder” shirts just seem out of place.

    Great show, and your girls are so cute! Lucky for you that you learned these healthy eating lessons while your girls were young. I tell my kids (all four of them are in their twenties and they are all overweight/obese) that if I knew then, what I know now, they would have grown up eating a lot different then they did.

      I wish I’d known what I know now when I was a kid, but at least I can get my girls started off right.

    Can’t hear Chareva, can’t be bothered to look it up … let’s call her “Mummy Naughton”.
    Londoners! Geez. Lowest of the British people. Brainless.

    The interview was very interesting. It’s not often you hear a 9 or 10 year old’s perspective on real food-based nutrition. I found myself thinking that I definitely wouldn’t have been able to sit back as relaxed as you seemed during the interview. Its good that you weren’t trying to play goalie with your kids’ comments, if they didn’t match up with the perfect (or the “good”), as I don’t know if I’d have been able to do that. It’s also great to see that it is possible to raise kids eating this way, even when it seems like everyone outside your house would be trying to shame them into eating like everyone else. Hopefully this isn’t one of the things they end up rebelling against during the angst years!

      I don’t think they’ll rebel. We’re careful not to be food Nazis. They can eat pizza or birthday cake or whatever at birthday parties, they can order foods with bread or other forms of wheat when we go out for a big dinner if that’s what they want, and they get to eat pretty much whatever on holidays. We’ve explained to them that occasional treats are okay, but making those foods part of their regular diet is what causes damage.

      They’re also motivated by my offer to put $1,000 in their “I want a car” funds if they make it to age 16 without a cavity. So far, so good.
