As we said previously about Miley Cyrus' gluten-free love affair, perhaps you should hold up on taking her advice that everyone should try it.
This is from Rachel Begun, a registered dietitian and food industry consultant:
"People who go gluten-free may gain weight if they rely mostly on highly-processed gluten free foods, many of which tend to be higher in fat, calories and sugar than their gluten-containing counterparts."
And this is from Karen Ansel, also a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
"There’s absolutely no evidence that a gluten-free diet promotes weight loss. However, there is data that indicates that following a gluten-free diet can result in a diet that's low in key nutrients — especially iron, zinc and B vitamins such as folate and niacin.”
So you have to BE CAREFUL and not just do it on a whim because it's working for one celebrity that has the proper reasons to follow it!
Just make sure you don't turn this into a fad diet, it could backfire!
