What's Your Reason for Going Gluten-Free?
“Going Gluten-Free” is one of the most buzz-worthy and talked-about diets in modern times. And, while less than one percent of Americans are diagnosed with celiac disease and follow a gluten-free diet as a medical necessity, growing numbers of people are abandoning bread for other reasons each year. According to a 2015 Gallup Poll, one in five Americans says they try to include gluten-free foods in their diet, while one in six say they try to avoid gluten altogether.
No matter what your motivation for starting a gluten-free diet is,
…There’s a lot that can be said for implementing dietary changes in the right way to keep you happy, healthy, and nutritionally satisfied.

It's More Than "JUST A FAD..."
Some people believe that being on a gluten-free diet is a healthier way to eat and live; still, others claim that it’s an opportunity for weight loss. However, there’s no research to confirm that by removing gluten from your diet you will shed pounds or be healthier. There are, however, studies that show that eating too many pre-packaged gluten-free foods can cause weight gain. Then again, I think the same can be said for anyone eating too many pre-packaged foods period, whether they are gluten-free or not.
In conversations with people who have not been diagnosed with celiac disease but who have gluten sensitivity, I’m told that by eliminating gluten-containing foods from their diet they “just feel better.” It’s a claim that an estimated 18 million Americans who suffer from gluten sensitivity attest to.
As with a traditional healthy diet, in a gluten-free diet, you will want to fill up your plate with balanced meals of nutritionally wholesome gluten-free foods. Fruits and vegetables, beans, nuts, fish and lean meats that make up most of your diet. If you love grains, you still can eat them. There are many great gluten-free grains available. Buckwheat, corn, millet, quinoa, and rice are just a few examples.
If you’re gluten-sensitive and eating a balanced diet, you likely will not have to worry about nutritional deficiencies. Challenges and exceptions come into the picture if you do have celiac disease. The difference is that when you have celiac disease, your body does not absorb all the nutrients from food. Newly diagnosed celiac sufferers may be deficient in calcium, fiber, iron, vitamin D, and even protein, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation.
