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.

Re: Gluten free

I was PROPERLY G-free for 2-3 weeks.

Didn't notice the benefit but I had a few other things going for me those weeks so no reason why I would.

I sure did notice when I had to go back tho!

I think of it like modifying cars... Bear with me... *everyone* will tell you "Yeah it's loads faster" when you make a modification (usually louder exhaust!) but it's psychological IMO... You really notice when things get WORSE, not better.

I think of it like evolution... Bear with me... If cave-ppl all went around congratulating themselves every time they think they did something better, they'd never get anything done... But if they didn't notice when something got WORSE they'd get worse... (and die without procreating, trolol)

So how do I vote in the poll? (NVM, I voted)

Re: Gluten free

If you have an inflammatory medical condition then removing gluten does help. Whether people believe there's any truth in it doesn't really matter. The flow on effect was it helped the brain function better coz the body was functioning better. Try and see if it makes a difference great if not then nothing lost.
