Considering Going Gluten-Free? | Accent by Chubb

  1. 1. Considering Going Gluten-Free? Weigh the pros and cons before committing to the diet. Whole-wheat pastas. Couscous. Veggie burgers. These seemingly healthy choices all have one thing in common that may actually make them “no-no’s” for your meal plan: gluten. The gluten-free diet is the latest health craze. Celebs like Chelsea Clinton and Zooey Deschanel are rumored to be gluten-free. Popular books like Wheat Belly and Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s The G-Free Diet advocate cutting out gluten as a means of boosting health and losing weight. But before you hop on the g-free bandwagon, you should learn more about gluten and the benefits and drawbacks of eliminating it from your diet. What exactly is gluten? And why is it a problem? Gluten is a protein found in wheat and grains that gives a chewy texture to foods like bagels and pizza dough. It’s also sometimes used as an additive in processed items like salad dressing and ketchup. Most people have no problem digesting gluten, but people with an autoimmune condition known as celiac disease experience painful and dangerous symptoms, like bloating, vomiting and exhaustion when they eat it.

The biggest drawback may be missing out on some of your favorite foods. Cookies, pastries and cake? Out. Sandwiches, wraps and tacos? Gone. Even things you wouldn’t expect, like some dairy, candy and beer—nope, nope, nope. The flipside of depriving yourself of these items is that most of them are high in carbohydrates and calories, so you may drop some pounds. Gluten-free alternatives exist for all these foods, from rice-flour wraps to potato- based pastas to almond-meal cookies. But be warned: These specialty groceries can cost significantly more, and they still may pack a lot of calories. A more affordable—and perhaps healthier—approach may be swapping the pizzas and pastas for meals based on naturally gluten-free foods like vegetables, beans, eggs, meats and fish. Plus there are some grains that are safe, like quinoa, rice and oats. One final word of caution before you kiss gluten goodbye: Consider taking a multivitamin and fiber supplement to make sure you’re not missing out on the nutritious benefits of grains.
