The "gluten free" diet or "wheat free diet" has exploded recently, and with good reason. Especially in the first few months, people who take on lifestyle of eating a no wheat diet can see amazing results.
With a gluten free diet, the health benefits are more about what you’re not eating than what you are. You cut out fried and breaded foods, which cuts out oil and fat, and you cut out a good portion of desserts – eliminating sugar. You’re also giving up greasy fast food and trading it for fruits and vegetables. Going wheat free lets you massively increase your whole food intake.
But did you know there are plenty of other benefits besides weight loss? Studies have shown that eating wheat free may lower your cholesterol levels, help with digestion, an increase your energy level, and you might even see less bone and joint pain.
