Personal Trainer Amanda Neumiller busts the myth of: Gluten-Free Eating
The (increasingly) common belief: A gluten-free diet is a “healthy” diet.
The reality: If you’re looking at changing your diet for weight loss and/or to improve your health, a gluten-free diet won’t be the answer. When gluten is taken out of a food, something else has to be added back in to replace the flavor that is lost with the gluten. Typically, gluten is replaced with fats or sugars. Studies have shown that gluten free-diets by themselves won’t help slim you down, or make you healthier. A gluten-free diet is most beneficial for those who have Celiac Disease or a gluten intolerance.
