There’s so much talk these days about going gluten-free. Seems like everyone is getting on the GF bandwagon. I personally don’t believe it’s a fad. I think most people can benefit from eating a gluten-free diet, especially with all the highly processed grains out there now. On the other hand, eating a gluten-free cupcake isn’t necessarily healthy either. Just because something is GF doesn’t mean it’s healthy. You can still easily gain weight on a GF diet. Simply swapping out a normal piece of brand for a GF piece of bread isn’t going to get you any health gains. At the beginning of my GF journey, I thought this was the case though. I said, ” It’s GF! I can eat as much as I want! Who cares if it’s sugar filled because it’s GF!” I quickly learned that was not the right approach and since then I’ve made major diet changes. (Hello Whole30!) Now I incorporate more veggies in place of the GF substitutes. Don’t get me wrong, I still like to have cookies, ice cream, and birthday cake every now and then, but now I can make it GF and not feel terrible after eating it!
I hope after hearing my story about going GF and all the benefits I’ve reaped from it, that you’ll consider eliminating gluten from your diet for a period of time and see how you feel.
