Gluten free

I've seen a gluten-free diet recommended a few times here and on Reddit. I wonder how effective it really is? Considering trialing it but I'm already vegan so would be quite an effort.

Re: Gluten free

Gluten is the soup du jour for diet fads and trends recently. The thing I have an issue with is very very few of the people who request a gluten free meal or eat gluten free do not have celiac disease and it makes people who actually have the disease to be viewed as a PITA like the people who just want things done special for meals out. People with celiac can ingest micrmil's of gluten and end up in the hospital with gut and stomach problems. For them its life or death. As far as for diet or adhd..for diet purposed carbs that are low on the glycemic index seem to be better suited for me. I want to cut carbs even more but I have been a baby lately. I actually went gluten free about a year ago for a month due to other issues I was testing out and I never noticed one bit of improvement or things got worse with regards to my adhd.

Re: Gluten free

I find myself buying more and more gluten free products, not because I have any issues with gluten itself, but because more often than not gluten-free items don't contain flour enriched with synthetic variants of needed nutrients, specifically folic acid. It can definitely be difficult, but there are more and more products showing up every day made with alternate forms of flour, whole grains, sprouted grains, etc. Not all of them are gluten-free, but I definitely see a lot of crossover between the two.

Re: Gluten free

The word 'gluten' doesn't sound appealing.

It's not just people with celiac who need to worry about gluten. Up to 10% of people are sensitive to gluten. It's inflammatory by nature and some people's bodies don't do well with inflammation.
