What Is Gluten ?

     Gluten is a type of protein contained in barley, wheat and rye. These ingredients are used to make foods rich in carbohydrates such as bread, pasta and crackers.

If you have gluten intolerance then your digestive tract won’t be able to absorb the nutrients contained in the food you eat.

You can either lose or gain weight because of this depending on your system. If you are reading this your body probably hangs on to fat contained in your food to make up for all the nutrients lost. If you eat a lot of carbohydrate then the gluten free diet is for you.

How Will Gluten Free Diet Lead To Weight Loss

        Since most food items that contain gluten are rich in carbohydrates, when you rid yourself of these gluten containing foods you are bound to lose weight.

When it comes to gaining weight carbohydrates play a big role, due to the fact that they contain large amounts of calories and calories lead to weight.

Another thing is that such foods have high glycemic content and so have the tendency to cause fluctuations in your blood sugar levels.

Carb cravings are a result of these fluctuations and this leads to extra intake of calories.

When on a gluten free diet your food choices should be such that they slowly increase your blood sugar levels so that your body will burn fat faster.

Foods high in nutrients and low in calories are key to losing weight through through the gluten free diet plan as they stabilize blood sugar levels and help curb hunger.
