The benefit for many people in going gluten-free is that wheat, rye, and barley (i.e. gluten) inRead More food is inflammatory. For anyone with chronic illness such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, or chronic infections (lyme disease, etc.), a gluten-free diet can go a long way in reducing the pain associate with these conditions. When fighting infections, the body is already in an inflamed state; cutting gluten during this time gives the body a better chance at a quicker recovery. There are some wonderful gluten-free alternatives out there and many restaurants are even offering things like gluten-free pasta and pizza. We buy most of our gluten-free products right at Shoprite. Even Barilla makes GF pasta, which tastes as good as the original. Tate's makes some nice GF crunchy chocolate chip cookies and, if you're up to baking, Bisquick makes GF pancakes (just add a little sugar), and Gluten Free Pantry has some great cookie, cake and brownie mixes. Finally, going gluten free does not mean you will lose weight. Gluten free donuts are going to be fattening because of all the carbs - just like conventional donuts.
