Why Going Gluten Free Can Be Unhealthy
This is a fantastic article worth reading whether you are gluten-free or not. A big misconception about going gluten-free is that it leads to weight loss. As with anything you eliminate, you may experience weight loss, but that is definitely not a reason to eliminate something. Gluten-free has gotten a bad rap in the diet world… Instead of just eliminating gluten, people are replacing traditional packaged products containing gluten (which are usually highly processed to begin with) with more processed food that often contain ingredients that no one can pronounce (just like the original).
I have been gluten-free for four years now, and people often ask about it. What do you eat? Why can’t you eat gluten? Etc. If I consume gluten in any form, I almost instantly get bloated and have GI issues, so I stay away from it to the best of my ability. If you have to stay away from gluten because it makes you feel gross, try to focus on whole foods instead of packaged/processed foods, which is what this article suggests.
