Is it really possible to lose weight whilst on a gluten free diet? Firstly there are 2 answers to this question. Are you gluten intolerant and looking to lose weight, or are you overweight and looking at using a gluten free diet as a means of losing weight? I can offer a couple of answers to both of these questions, please read on.
Firstly lets take a look at those of you who are gluten intolerant, and are looking at ways that the food you can eat, can help you lose weight. I have a family member who became gluten intolerant and really started to struggle with their weight. For years a steady and controlled weight had now changed almost overnight, and quite rapidly the weight was starting to pile on.
For me the answer was simple, we had to find a weight loss program which was for people who could not eat gluten. Do you know how hard that was, it became almost impossible. Many people believe that simply cutting gluten from your diet will mean the weight will simply fall off, but this is not the case for everyone. The protein found in most foods such as bread, pasta and even milk may be easy to cut out of a diet, but does not mean instant weight loss.
Can you lose weight on a gluten-free diet? Well, the answer is simply yes. The key to this part of the program for those who are intolerant is to find healthy alternatives which will help you lose weight, and effectively burn away those calories. One more little secret I will share is that to lose weight this way, you do not have to cut out foods such as pizza, pasta and pies. I bet you didn’t think you could eat such foods, and lose weight?
Now for those who are looking at taking gluten out of your diet to lose weight, then you may have found one of the best kept secrets when it comes to dieting. The first step is to know which foods to avoid. Many people when starting a new diet have trouble shopping for the right foods. Having a simply plan which will tell you exactly which foods to buy, and the ones to avoid is a must.
We all know simply eating less food and exercising more, will mean your weight will start to drop off overnight. This is not the case, and I am sure you know that, that’s why you are taking a look at this diet plan.
