Bill O’Reilly: Don’t Eat Wheat!

This is great. I don’t care much for Fox News, but their viewers deserve their health too. Right?

Popular host Bill O’Reilly just talked about how much healthier he feels since he stopped eating wheat. He also gave a huge endorsement to the book Wheat Belly by my good friend dr William Davis.

If you’re interested I have a great video interview with dr Davis coming up soon. If you can’t wait, get the book. It’s good.

More about the free updates that people get.

    O'Reilly is not a news reader; he's the host of an opinion program. If LCHF, Atkins, or any other low carb diet/nutritional information is ever going to become well known and understood in the USA then O'Reilly and his kind from FOX are exactly the individuals who will need to communicate it. Liberals (on the left) make up less than 33% of the American population. Conservatives and Libertarians simply do not trust liberals to disseminate any critical information on a plethora of subjects (and vice versa is true, obviously). That's why FOX has such high ratings for a cable news network.

    If the zeitgeist is to change in the US it will be because of the O'Reillys, not the Alec Baldwins. Now, if Oprah were to come out of retirement and endorse low carb- that would be a game changer. ;-)

    Interesting clip. Living in the UK I cannot imagine a well known presenter endorsing this approach on TV, and I wonder whether he will be forced to retract when McVities and Kellogg's get to hear about it?
  2. I don't really care for Bill Os politics or TV show, but he did do a nice job of SUGGESTING people look into it, without telling them "OMG you're gonna die from wheat". I highly doubt he would do a retraction, he's pretty stubborn which can be a virtue.

    He did, however, recommend "gluten free alternatives", which tend to actually be higher on the GI than wheat. Fix one problem, start another.

    In related new, "scientists" are stunned to find out that the average westerner is no more sedentary than the average hunter-gatherer. Truth from Faux-News and slothful HGs; what's the world coming to?:

  6. is the american scared of the FDA? i dont understand why low carb is still "controversy" and people recommend it so gentle -

    sugar industry has a iron fist on food regulations - and it gets me so irritated - when government think they "own" the truth in health guidelines..

    A gastroenterologist I went to recently suspects strongly I have celiac disease, which would explain my hypothryoidism, osteoporosis and arthritis at the ripe old age of 57. My primary care providers all shrugged off my questions saying I was just getting old. Davis's book does a great job of explaining how wheat has changed for the worse over the past half-century or so. Paleo folks would of course say it's always been a problem (I tend to think they're right).

    Although I do not care for Bill OReilly I would say that I am not far off from his politics. In fact it was on a conservative blog by Glen Reynolds that started me on this paleo journey. He also promotes various authors and their books such as Wheat Belly. I hate to discuss politics since it can bring out the worst in people such as Bill.

    O'Reilly had Dr. Michael Eades on his show in the past -

    It isn't really a stretch at all to suppose that either he or people working for his show have been familiar with these ideas for a while now.

    Bill O'Reilly is an real asshole. People like him disgust me.
  11. It'll be interesting to see if Bill gets nicer without all that gluten running around his system. :) Regardless of politics, it's great to see someone of his stature give wheat its due. He probably will get major flak for it from the powers that be at Monsanto, Cargill, etc. For that, I salute him.

    There are worse people with less public appeal who could be endorsing this...so I guess one should not complain...still.....Good point PaleoHappy (& cool name)!
    LC RULES!!

    Ha, this is the last place I'd expect to see O'Reilly's face, since he believes in zero government intervention to solve the nation's obesity problem. But I guess it's a good thing; his viewers trust him more than the Food & Drug Administration.
  14. Bob
    If people don't believe in government intervention to solve the obesity problem, perhaps its because government is largely responsible for the obesity problem. It isn't the free market that subsidized wheat and corn all these years. Nor is it the free market that has given us the wonderful Food Pyramid.

    Government seems to simply be a power tool so that special interest groups can push their own interests and stifle dissent. Liberals seem to hate "big" things...big oil, big pharma, big tobacco etc...why is "big" government any different? The argument seems to be that we should use the power of government to help us, but its bad when other groups do it.

    Reminds me of Lord of the Rings lol. Sure, power corrupts. But WE can use the Ring and it will be okay.

    There wouldn't be such a huge difference in cost between grass fed-beef and a frozen pizza unless the government were highly involved in the entire process.

    To persons on this comment thread, if low carb makes Bill O'Reilly happier, and I don't suggest he isn't happy, it should have worked on some of you that have unkind comments directed towards him and Fox News. Intolerance for others isn't a Low Carb thing, obviously.
  16. Raymond
    BTW, if any of you reading this are Hypothyroid, you have 92% percent chance of being gluten intolerant. That explains your lower GI problems, joint aches, arthritis, brain fog, headaches and many other side effects of gluten intolerance.
  17. SkallaGrim!
    Yearh, you are right Kathy. Good thing the government stepped in and solved the nation's obesity problem in 1984! Gotta get those carbs you know, stay off the fat. Its only loonies who think big government is a big mistake. If they dindt know better than any of us, they wouldn't be in a position of power, right?
  18. I don't like Bill o'Reily at all, but I have to give him credit when he deserves it. Fortunately, he has plenty of fans. So this is a plus.
  19. These blogs are supposed to be about gluten free and all I see is hate of Bill O'Reilly and political chatter...So I'll add mine. Bill is a ass at times.But there is no better news for trying to get at the truth.NONE! I watch the others and at times Blitzer has some light. NBC and that crew at MSNBC is full of thee most outrageous,jump through your screen anger, that I have ever witnessed.CBS? Give me a break! And if some stupid stuff occurs in this Nation, they can all go look in the mirror and see who the culprits are...ie: Them! NOT Obama...Them! They all jumped on the 'cool aid train' and now we have a mess. This was NOT their job. Their job was to repoort the news to the American People and let us decide.
    NOW,How about the gluten fre diet and how does one do it?
  20. Bettie
    Your politics should have nothing to do with health problems.Our country is in trouble now because of people like you.I went on your site for help not to read that you don"t like Fox news.How sad.
  21. Cathy
    Can we PLEASE be spared your personal-people opinions of Bill O'Reilly. Such bores! The information on this site is good and I will order the book on Amazon.
