About The Diet
Some people opt to follow a gluten-free diet by choice, others have no choice but to remain gluten-free due to allergies, intolerance, or even Celiac disease. Eliminating gluten is not at all an unhealthy thing to do, but it can be difficult.
Gluten is found in everything from soups to condiments to cereals and baked goods. Eating out can also be extremely challenging as many restaurants do not offer gluten-free alternatives or may charge more for gluten-free meals.
In 2014 food manufacturers started offering more gluten-free products to people and better labeling, however, these products may be safe for those with Celiac but when gluten is stripped out of processed foods, rise is often used as a substitute which may have higher calories.
Simply going gluten-free and consuming gluten alternatives may not be enough to help you lose weight — you still have to have plan to reduce your daily calories. However, giving up gluten and not replacing breads, desserts, etc. with gluten-free alternatives can help you lose weight because foods containing gluten are usually high carbohydrates foods, and many gluten-containing baked goods are also often high in calories and fat.
