One of the largest stresses that people face these days is their health.
And the one that follows closely behind that is weight stress.
Now when you think of weight issues causing stress you are mostly likely thinking of women stressing about their weight, but hold up… men aren’t far behind them.
More and more people are causing themselves cellular damage due to their health stress, as well as stress from weight management.
Are you excessively fond of fast food items? It’s a no brainer that consuming junk food on a regular basis can often causes obesity. Have you ever wondered why this is so? One common thread with all of these is that they are all known to contain gluten, a protein which is synthesized from wheat, barley and rye. Consuming gluten for some can cause Coeliac’s Disease, a genetic disorder that prevents synthesizing of gluten in the stomach. It is often responsible for creating an auto-immune response once gluten enters the body, leading nutrient malabsorption and destruction of intestinal villi (the wall).
Studies have proven that by simply dropping gluten from your diet you can begin to say goodbye to your unwanted weight. Gluten can cause water retention, inflammation, poor digestion and in some cases mal absorption.
So, if you have put on a significant amount of weight that you just can’t seem to shake. I’d highly recommended opting for a gluten-free diet for weight loss. Health experts usually recommend people to switch to food items like nuts and beans in their natural form, fruits and vegetables, fresh meat and fish and fresh eggs.
Embracing a ‘fresh is best’ style diet I could not recommend more highly for anyone however when first embracing a gluten free diet there are a number of items which you need to avoid like wheat, rye, barley (including products like malt vinegar made from barley), croutons, chips, confectionary and even salad dressings as well as sauces.
Sounds a little challenging right, cutting out gluten and going ‘all fresh’.
But I like to bake?
Don’t fret using gluten free flour as part of your kitchen staples for making things like slices, muffins, frittata’s or even GF pastries is all very well accomplishable.
But like starting anything new for the first time there are always a lot of new things to learn along the way.
Once you’ve switched to a gluten free diet, you can lose the unwanted weight you’ve been reluctantly carrying around and you’ll start to feel more energized, happier and healthier.
Not to mention slimmer too.
