How to Lose Weight With A Gluten-free DieteBook - 2012
"Gluten-free" seems to be all the rage these days. As diagnoses of gluten sensitivity and the autoimmune disorder Celiac disease have increased, more and more restaurants are offering gluten-free options, some supermarkets have aisles dedicated to the stuff, and even national coffee shop chains have jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon. Even people without allergies have begun to eschew gluten, citing improved digestion, clearer thinking, and better moods. So what's the deal with "gluten-free"? What does it mean? Is it just a gimmick? Or is it a healthful eating choice? And here's the big question: can you lose weight by adopting a gluten-free diet? All these questions will be answered in this guide, but let's get the biggie out of the way: yes, you can lose weight by adopting a gluten-free diet. You can also, however, gain weight on a gluten-free diet. Ditching the gluten is not a dieting "Get Out of Jail Free" card. Switching out wheat and other gluten-containing foods can help your body streamline its fat-burning processes and improve your overall health, but it's not a magic bullet. Gluten-free foods can contain just as much sugar, fat, artificial preservatives, and other "bad" stuff as their "normal" counterparts.
