Dogma 1: Grains are the devil.
I'm seeing this one everywhere-- people are railing against grains as if just thinking about them will tie your gut in knots and suck the life out of you on the spot. Nope, I don't follow this one. I wrote an article about it a while back, so rather than rehash it, I'll just post the link: http://melodyschoenfeld.blogspot.com/2010/12/great-grain-debate.html
And if we're discussing grains, we should also discuss phytates: http://melodyschoenfeld.blogspot.com/2010/12/whats-phytate.html
Dogma 2: Soy is the spawn of the devil.
If I were to follow the current trend of dogma, if grains are bad, soy is the father of all evil. Nope, don't follow this one, either. This is another thing I've written about before, so read about that here: http://melodyschoenfeld.blogspot.com/2010/12/to-soy-or-not-to-soy.html
Dogma 3: You need to detox.
I do believe you need to detox. I don't believe you need to do it using sugar-lemon-water and cayenne pepper. I believe you need to do it by adopting clean eating habits and letting your liver do the rest.
