It seems that going gluten free is the biggest diet trend right now. It's not a bad idea, and can change your life for the better in more ways than one. While some people have a legitimate allergy to gluten, known as Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity, others can make the choice to cut gluten out of their diet all together.
Gluten is the wheat that is present in cereal grains. These grains can cause people to have problems with digestion, mental illness such as autism and epilepsy, and auto-immune diseases. Making the choice to go gluten free can help heal adrenal fatigue, depression, and multiple inflammatory diseases that involve the digestive system, musculoskeletal system, and neurological system. Gluten can also cause weight gain.
Foods like pasta, bread, crackers, and some spices all contain gluten. To start a diet and lifestyle without gluten, you'll have to closely watch what you eat. Some foods to incorporate into your diet include more fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and seeds, rice and quinoa, eggs, lean meat, and some dairy products. Now, you can also find bread and pasta that's gluten free.
