Lately, I’ve been spending a great deal of time thinking about food.
Confusion around alcohol guidlines

The advice on whether we should drink and how much is probably more like a small boat on choppy seas—you never know in which direction it might be pulled or if it might capsize completely.

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve suffered from extreme bloating and pain. I’ve done everything from medication to supplements. Until it was brought to my attention that ultra processed foods could be the cause. Once I started reading labels and cutting out the “junk” I’ve noticed a huge improvement. Within a few weeks, I started to feel less bloated, and because of that there was less pain. From then on I made a change, to only have un-ultraprocessed and whole foods in my household.”
“Dawn’s work in the field of gut health has helped raise awareness on the damaging effects of emulsifiers, thickeners, and other zero-calorie additives on gut health and chronic inflammation. Cutting out such products has not only had a beneficial effect on my own gut health but also on the health of thousands of people following the Eat Burn Sleep inflammation-reducing lifestyle. Thank you Dawn for all your hard work and for shedding light on this crucial topic.”

“Since I was 15 years old, I’ve suffered abdominal cramps after eating all the foods I love- ice cream, pizza, bread, cream cheese. For the longest time I thought it was just because I was lactose intolerant- but lactase pills didn’t relieve my symptoms. Since avoiding emulsifiers and additives, I’ve noticed that I can eat these foods (Haagen dazs ice cream, pizza with sliced mozzarella, bread from a bakery) without the additives such as carrageenan, cellulose in shredded cheese, and dough conditioners in industrial bread. I’ve never felt better. I wish more doctors, nutritionists, chefs, supermarkets and restaurants knew more about this.”
“I’ve had a variety of digestive issues since my gallbladder was removed at 18-years-old. The thing that’s made the biggest positive impact on my digestion now in my 40s (aside from giving up gluten a long time ago), has been following Dr. Dawn’s recommendations on cutting additives and emulsifiers. I feel so much better.”
