Gluten-free diet is one of the fastest and most effective ways to lose weight. Originally, gluten-free diet was designed for those, the body of which cannot digest gluten or those who’re allergic to fibrin.
After that, it was noticed by nutrition experts that by excluding flour and grains from the diet, you lower your body weight. And that’s how gluten-free diet became a diet for weight loss. You can lose up to 10 pounds in just 2 weeks.
It must be noted that many regular products are now available without gluten (grains, pasta, sweets).
You can eat 4-5 times per day, while the last meal shouldn’t be less than 2 hours before sleep. You can choose from the variety of foods: brown rice, gluten-free oatmeal, corn, fruits, vegetables, butter, meat, fish, vegetable oils, tea, coffee, cocoa, legumes, milk and dairy, grains, honey and eggs.
You should exclude: wheat, barley, rye, as well as processed foods (beer, whiskey, chips, white vinegar, spices). It must be noted that you also cannot consume starch, which is contained in many products – sauces, some yogurts, sausages, etc.
Before buying foods, study their composition and make sure they don’t contain the products you cannot eat. Also, people who stick to the gluten-free diet, don’t receive a number of nutrients, which is why you must consume foods with a high content of calcium, thiamine, niacin and folic acid.
