Los Angeles, CA – 2/11/2014—
In the dietary and nutritional world, going Gluten-freecould be considered the new black in terms of popularity. But before anyone undertakes the challenge ofremoving gluten from their diet, there are a few things to understand aboutwhat gluten is and how it functions in the body.
While some may need to remove gluten from their diets forhealth reasons, such as celiac disease or a diagnosed wheat allergy, many whotake on this dietary challenge do it out of choice rather than necessity. A focus on the “hunter-gatherer” style ofliving has led many to choose this dietary focus for its health benefits, butthere is little evidence that proves removing gluten automatically meansimproved health.
It’s important to realize that before self-treating anysuspected celiac related illness by removing gluten that one should speak withtheir physician. There are other stepsthat those with celiac disease and other conditions must take to remain healthyother than just removing gluten from their diets.
One must also realize that just because there are many whodo lose weight upon removing gluten from their diets, it’s not a magical curefor instant weight loss. Yes, removingcarbs and focusing on healthier choices has been shown to reduce weight,carbohydrates are still needed for energy and health reasons. Some celiac patients experience weight gaindue to the increased sugar and fat found in gluten free products, which isanother reason it’s best to talk with a doctor before changing a dietaryprogram.
If one has considered all these reasons and still decides agluten-free lifestyle is something they wish to pursue, a registered dieticiancan assist in determining a meal plan and teaching one to identify gluten inproducts. They can also assist in makingsure all essential nutrients are included in the diet while still removing thegluten products for overall better health.
Discuss this dietary option with a physician beforeundertaking it, but if going gluten-free sounds like a lifestyle choice thatwould fit one’s health goals, it’s worth pursuing and trying out to rid thebody of unnecessary toxins and extra calories.
