Will a gluten-free diet help you lose weight?
Topic: Will a gluten-free diet help you lose weight?
June 25, 2019 / By Caileigh Question:
I have a gluten allergy, and was wondering if a gluten-free diet will help me lose weight? I am avoiding breads, obviously, and have had to cut out a lot of other foods because of my allergy. I have introduced myself to gluten-free breads...which I don't care for. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this situation and can supply me with any information. I am trying to lose 20 lbs. by June, and figure this may (or may not?) help with my diet.

to lose weight u need to eat right and have a workout plan 5-6 days a week.u have to want it.
***try this u need to change ur diet.
eat six times a day. ea of ur 3 main meals needs to combine a lean protein such as chicken breast ground turkey turkey bacon egg whts also combine that with a complex carb such as a baked potato or sweet potato wild rice brown rice oatmeal or girts. also add fresh fruit and vegies to lunch and dinner. pick fruits low in sugar like pears and berries. if u get canned vegies get ones with low sodium. eat every 3-4 hrs keep ur metablism moving.
***also the most important part is WATER drink at least 64oz. no soda or juice. water will curve ur cravings.
u need to hit cardio 3-4 times a week running outside it great workout if u can hit a gym and cardio machine is great at least 30mins***
also add weight/strength training 3 times a week.u can google free weight traning guides anywhere. its not hard to find things for free.
***plan ur meals ahead of time.always have a healthy snack with u so u wont be tempted to eat fast food. also if u wait to late to eat u will get so hungry u will eat the world. make time to work out start out with 30 mins then increase.its ur body treat it right. ur diet alone can help lose weight but working out makes ur body look good. shows muscles and tight skin which is sexy and beautful. stick with it ur body will amaze u!!! to be healthy and look great u need both in ur life. good luck email me if u have further questions

Oh yeah, MOST ppl are on the GF diet because they have to, not for weight loss. It is NOT meant to be a weight loss diet, glad u understand that!
I am assuming u have celiac or gluten intolerance or an allergy and thus is why u are eating gf.
I'll tell u it was REALLY hard at first for me. I got preg with my first child just one month after being diagnosed with celiac and didnt totally understand it all then. I cheated a lot and thank God my baby was born healthy!
You just need to do research and immerse yourself in it for awhile. It will get easier.
Here's my faves and tips:
Eating out: Outback, PF Changs, Chilis
Check websites of restraunts u like before u go, often GF menus are online.
Other than Kinnikinnick, try to avoid ordering frozen foods onilne, shipping is outrageous. But Kinnikinnick will ship their food for 10 bucks not matter just freeze upon arrival.
Trust me it is hard to adjust, your body is wondering where is all that gluten?? :) But it does get easier especially as you discover all the yummy (seriously) gf food out there! Trust em, just askt he extra lbs i packed on after going GF!
Try support groups also:
yahoo health group "SillyYaks" and "USA_SillyYaks" Feel free to email me for further help but I am due to deliver my second child any day now, so I may be MIA for awhile! :)

You have what so many other Americans have and you don't even know it.
It's called sub-clinical gluten intolerance. It's not the same thing as Celiac's Disease where as Celiacs is a severe inflammatory response to gluten, sub-clinical gluten intolerance is a chronic and low grade inflammatory response that carries on for years oftentimes before symptoms start to present. There has been a lot of research lately and they are finding that close to 50% of people have some degree of this.
The reason you are now intolerant to dairy is because this is directly related to gluten intolerance. The inflammation caused by you eating gluten literally burns and destroys the microvilli within your digestive tract. On the very tip of these microvilli is where you produce the enzyme to break down and digest lactose. So the first thing you lose due to the intestinal damage is your ability to digest dairy. But if there is no underlying dairy intolerance then oftentimes if you heal your gut, you can easily tolerate dairy again.
Your IBS and other symptoms associated with your sub-clinical gluten intolerance is a result of a condition referred to as Leaky Gut Syndrome which is where the intestinal damage occurs to the point that it breaks down the mucosal barrier of your intestinal lining. And you develop a dysbiosis (imbalance of bacteria in your gut).
Whether or not you react doesn't mean that the damage is not occurring. Oftentimes when this gets really bad, you'll stop showing symptoms because your body will naturally mask them as a way to protect you. However, like I mentioned, the damage is still occurring and you'll likely develop some more severe symptoms over time, often unrelated to your gut at all (immune related).
Here is what you need to do...
1. Cut out all gluten, dairy, and soy (another big one) from your diet.
2. Get on a good wide sprectrum probiotic (like Dr. Ohirra's)
3. Take a high quality multi-stage digestive enzyme with HCL
4. Make sure your bowels are moving properly and if not, use a finely ground psyllium seed hulls as a source of fiber.
5. You can also use cod liver oil to help with the inflammation.
