If you have went to the store lately I am sure you have seen the plethora of products that can be eaten on the gluten free diet because they are now made without gluten. Many celebs are picking up this diet and running with it as well as many women and men around the world that are looking to drop a few pounds.

When people get on the gluten free diet many times they are going to find that they lose weight and they think it is because they have cut gluten out of their diet. Most times this simply is not true. Gluten is a protein that you will find in product that contain wheat, barley and rye. The reason that you lose weight when getting on the gluten free diet is because you cut out many products that are starchy products that are difficult for your body to digest.

You can lose weight when going on this diet but you can just as easily lose weight by cutting out the foods that are difficult to digest for your body. Your body will be able to tell you what it does not like and what is difficult for it to digest. Just limit those things that are processed and you will see results. If you must go along with the gluten free diet craze it won’t hurt you but it is not the magic bullet.

The gluten free diet consists of eliminating foods that contain gluten, which is a protein found mainly in wheat products. It is hard to digest for many people, and even more detrimental to those who suffer from celiac disease.
