ABOUT THE BOOK

Gluten-free seems to be all the rage these days. As diagnoses of gluten sensitivity and the autoimmune disorder Celiac disease have increased, more and more restaurants are offering gluten-free options, some supermarkets have aisles dedicated to the stuff, and even national coffee shop chains have jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon. Even people without allergies have begun to eschew gluten, citing improved digestion, clearer thinking, and better moods.

So whats the deal with gluten-free? What does it mean? Is it just a gimmick? Or is it a healthful eating choice? And heres the big question: can you lose weight by adopting a gluten-free diet?

All these questions will be answered in this guide, but lets get the biggie out of the way: yes, you can lose weight by adopting a gluten-free diet. You can also, however, gain weight on a gluten-free diet. Ditching the gluten is not a dieting Get Out of Jail Free card. Switching out wheat and other gluten-containing foods can help your body streamline its fat-burning processes and improve your overall health, but its not a magic bullet. Gluten-free foods can contain just as much sugar, fat, artificial preservatives, and other bad stuff as their normal counterparts.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Although Celiac disease affects less than 1% of the population, it is a serious autoimmune condition that is triggered by eating the gluten protein. In response to the protein, the small intestine destroys its own villi, which are responsible for absorbing nutrients from food. Without these nutrients, the body becomes severely malnourished.

Thats where a gluten-free diet comes in. Those who have Celiac disease must adhere to a very strict diet of no gluten whatsoever, even in vitamin pills and lip balm. But even if you dont have Celiac disease or a severe intolerance to gluten, cutting it out of your diet can help you feel better. And if you reduce your consumption of cookie, cake, and bread alternatives and increase the amount of vegetables and fruits you eat, you will lose weight.

Fittingly, some doctors are beginning to advocate for not only a gluten-free diet, but for a major reduction in all refined wheat products and other carbohydrates. Cardiologist Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, argues that wheat and other grain-based carbohydrates are responsible for a whole host of health problems, especially weight gain. In a discussion about our societys addiction to wheat products, Dr. Davis says that wheat...
