Why do so many people choose the gluten-free diet? The thing is, it is the only way to get rid of the allergy to gluten in starchy foods and sweets. Besides, this diet is a guaranteed way to lose weight.

 

A GLUTEN-FREE LIFE

Some people have a condition which prevents them from eating wheat, oats, rye or barley. It is called a coeliac disease—an intestinal disorder involving gluten intolerance: the body immediately responds to the foods containing gluten by bloating, gassiness, diarrhoea, and vitamin deficiency.

To improve the functioning of your gastrointestinal system, avoid the following foods:

  • Foods containing wheat, oats, barley or rye
  • Dairy and sausage products containing starch
  • Grits
  • Sweets
  • Tomato sauce
  • Juice and instant coffee
  • Dutch-process cocoa
  • Flour
  • Cornflakes

So what foods are allowed? This diet includes the following foods:

  • Millet
  • Maize
  • Amaranth
  • Buckwheat
  • Quinoa
  • Rice
  • Butter and vegetable oils
  • Fish and meat
  • Fruits and vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Coffee, tea, and cocoa (containing only natural ingredients)

The gluten-free diet provides for 4-5 meals a day, with the last meal of the day before 6 p.m.

 

IS IT WORTH IT TO GIVE UP GLUTEN JUST TO LOSE WEIGHT?

Many people compare the gluten-free diet with the equally popular paleo diet that suggests giving up fast food and ready-to-cook products. That is why the first food you should give up when following this diet is wheat: it has got more and more modified over the last 100 years.

Note that giving up gluten does not mean that this diet will instantly become a safe and effective way to lose weight. Even without foods containing gluten, there are a lot of foods that can make you put on weight. So, try to eat healthy and low-fat foods and don’t forget to drink enough water daily (about 2 litres).

Remember that gluten is a food-based allergen causing problems with your digestive system and weakening the immune system.

 

WHAT WILL MY MENU FOR A DAY LOOK LIKE?

The gluten-free diet will help you to lose weight due to the balanced ration. A menu for a day can look as follows:

FOR A DAY
BREAKFAST Curd dessert with fruit, rice crispbread, cocoa and honey
LUNCH Cauliflower soup with sour cream, mashed potatoes, baked hake, green vegetables salad, and berry compote
SNACK Buckwheat bread roll with jam, tea
DINNER Millet porridge with nuts and dried fruit, kefir
