When patients with celiac disease go on a gluten-free diet, some gain, some lose, but for most, weights remain the same.21-23 There is nothing inherently healthy about a gluten-free diet, and no evidence indicates that gluten is harmful to healthy people without a gluten-related disorder.

  • This Vitiligo guide 4VitiligoCure. Com is very useful for my daughter that is why she definitely love it. We have already expended a hefty amount of money trying various Vitiligo cures for over a year now but not one of them had worked. I am thankful that we`ve found out this guide. We observed an apparent distinction within a couple of days and within a few weeks her Vitiligo had cleared up.

  • “Our favorite foods are our favorite foods because we eat them all the time. ” Wrong, I love sea food more then anything but I rarely eat it. I love crab, crab is my favorite food, but I rarely eat it.

  • hello….

    i have on question please answer if you can

    does lychee tea help lose weight or gain / what does it do

    i used it and it really messed me up ������ really much

  • Im 13 and gluten free its torture when you’re at a birthday party and the only thing they have to eat is pizza and cake and you’re there for 4 hours����

  • I have celiac disease and I get that you are healthier or whatever if you don’t eat it but if I could get rid of this disease I would in a heartbeat, why would you deprive yourself of the wonderful world of wheat?

  • Shout out to all the gluten free people out there when this video ends we can’t just go eat gluten or pizza or other stuff we used to enjoy:(

  • Mam I’m ur new subscriber… really love to follow ur ideas… but small doubt wat s couscous is it healthy? I cldnt find foxtail millet… but I have seen white millet both are same? Suggest me some other option instead of quinoa

  • This whole video feels very discouraging to anyone who has a real gluten intolerance or celiacs. “I don’t feel any different” yeah because you already tolerated gluten fine and it never made you sick HELLO??? This is why people think it’s a fad to be gluten intolerant

  • Hey There! Thanks for this useful video. By the way, I notice many people keep on talking about Custokebon Secrets (search on google), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you considered Custokebon Secrets? I’ve heard several unbelivable things about it and my sister lost a lot of weight with it, but she refuses to tell me:(

  • honestly unless gluten makes you physically ill, eat it. Making gluten-free a fad diet creates problems for people who have to explain that they get sick from eating gluten

  • I am allergic to gluten……I have been doing this for 6 years. “Hey do you know how good pizza is?!” Thanks for rubbing it in my face. I just makes you think how you don’t realize how important something is in your daily routine until it’s gone…..just be grateful

  • I had been really hesitant, however I am glad I attempted this particular vitiligo treatment method 4VitiligoCure. Com. The results are excellent the morning after I used it. I used it two times a day for the first few days and then once daily for the following five days. My elbows are a lot better..

  • I have been trying to do gluten free for 3 months now but no luck. every week I have gluten stuff at least twice. It is better than before, when I used to have gluten food every day. But it is tougher than being sugar free. I love my fried food. best to get fried food made of other types of flour. I cheated twice this week and it has only been six days since I started. I don’t think I would ever be gluten free but I think I will just eat it less often.

  • I have celiac and GLUTEN IS GOOD FOR YOUUUUU it’s not a bloody weight loss diet. I have to take a load of supplements and vitamins to make sure I grow and don’t get osteoporosis coz I took gluten out my diet. So please just stop and it really frustrates me because I would never choose to go gluten free coz I still hate it and I’ve been gluten free for 3 years now but I have to or I physically can’t get out of bed because I have ever symptoms of celiac under the sun and don’t even get me started on the regular blood tests ��

  • I’m so glad that you guys got to experience what it is like for me and other people every day. I have Celiac and I was diagnosed when I was 5. I’m glad no one got hurt because some people have to eat wheat for nutrition. Any way hope you enjoyed it!

  • I was diagnosed with celiac disease almost a year ago, watching this video was extremely upsetting. If you do not have a reason medically to go on a gluten free diet, it is not SAFE for you. We are not gluten free by choice but by disease. There is no cure for celiac disease so our medicine is gluten free food. One of my symptoms of celiac disease was major weight loss. It is still hard for me today to maintain my weight because gluten free foods are so low on calories. No one in this video felt more energized because they didn’t have a reason to go gluten free. They were avoiding proper nutrients for THEIR body. I know gluten free food doesn’t anyway taste great but it’s what keeping me alive and healthy. It’s not something to joke about. I don’t have a choice.

  • Belive or not gluten is bad for everyone, if you don’t have any condition this not mean you are ok to eat food, witch is not full absorb in a gut.

  • I don’t have celiac disease but if I eat bread I will always have back and knee pain the next day. Wouldn’t be noticeable if my job wasn’t so physically demanding. It definitely slows my recovery time.

  • I’ve been gluten free since i was 2. at 2 i was diagnose with Coeliac disease

  • I’m 4 days into a 30 day gluten free diet. I’ve noticed that I’m not as bloated. It’s only a month. After that I’ll limit my intake.

  • I was hoping this would include experience of someone who is newly diagnosed with Celiac or atleast has stomach ailments. These participants are full healthy and can eat anything while going gluten free is the last resort of someone who hasn’t known how it feels to be like a normal all their life and fear their next meal because the misery it will bring. Disappointing

  • The video was good, i quite liked it.
    I have Celiac diasese myself and i can relate to a lot in this video, but 4:00 made me drop a dislike, disrespectful person who should not be in the video.

  • If you’re not celiac, I no not recommend gluten free ”diet”, you’ll be missing so much.

    Also, I don’t get why gluten free diet is associated with weight loss, because it does the opposite with people who have celiac?
    Because what gluten does to a person with celiac disease is it ”cuts down your intestinal hair” (yeah I was a kid when I got diagnosed and this is basically how they explained it to me so don’t @ me) and because they’re cut down, they can’t absorb all the vitamins and all essential things which keep you alive. So the food you’re eating, doesn’t get abrobed and if you keep eating gluten, you die soon. But when celiacs swich to gluten free diet for the rest of their lives, the ”intestinal hairs” grow back and the you’re gaining weight again.

    That is what happened to me. I was INCREDIBLY skinny, until I was diagnosed with celiac disease and I was able to get gluten free food, I am now normal weight. So, this might not be with everyone, you might not be skinny and still have celiac, but after a long time when your body doesn’t get all the vitamins and other stuff from food, you die. That’t what gluten does. Again, I might be wrong, might not be with everyone, but if you’re not celiac, don’t start gluten free diet. You’ll miss out on all good foods. Storebought gluten free bread ain’t even good.

    Sorry about my bad english, I’m from Finland

  • Things have changed so much. Today I had a gluten free pizza and cookies and they were both great. I got them from a Walmart in Oregon for less than $10 total and they’re as good or even better than their regular counterparts AND I don’t feel sick after eating them! I’m thankful that this has gotten so much more recognition even if it’s because it’s been a fad diet

  • Gluten free for three months now and no change in my belly size? Still get bloated. Ive even cut down on sugar and have been alcohol free to? No real change?

  • Banana pancakes in breakfast and ragi with veggies and raita in lunch is ok but pls suggest something else in dinner instead of quinoa pulao

  • Great video, new subscriber!:) I’ve recently lost 12 lbs by being gluten “lite,” as you say. I feel so much better off of gluten. I never get bloated and I have WAY less cravings for unhealthy foods than before. I also very naturally eat a lot more veggies and fruit.

  • How to cook that / Ann Reardon explains why Gluten Free diets are in appropriate diets to take UNLESS you have Celiac disease or Gluten Sensitivity

  • I have a celiac disease and i hate it. I can never eat out because i’m also vegetarian. So I sometimes have to eat gluten even though i know i’ll get sick later, just so I won’t starve

  • This is some of the worst content I have ever seen from a well known media company. It’s clear why Buzzfeed articles are so lacking in balance; they are written by kids, supervised by kids and edited by kids.
    They have over 20 M subscribers ��

  • I have celiac disease and I hate that people think eating a gluten free diet is a lifestyle or a fad diet, I don’t have a choice, I get very sick from gluten, I love pasta and pizza and gluten free alternatives don’t taste as good as the real thing unfortunately, I wish there was a cure for this disease but there isn’t. In addition, I hate the taste of meat and dairy and eggs bother my stomach and skin, so I’m left with fruits, vegetables and rice. My gluten free vegan diet makes me feel a lot better, but it takes a lot of discipline.

  • Hi…l liked this video. Rather all as I’m.watching daily…Want to know that do we have to follow this same diet regular for 7 days????

  • I find this video nearly offensive? Gluten free diet is not a fad diet. It’s a cure for people like myself living with coeliac disease. I invite them to suffer the pain and cramps we get and then see much we rely on the gluten free diet. Well done to the guy who embraced it and took it seriously.

  • Mam I tried every single thing but still I can’t loose weight plz help me what can I do….I am diabetic pcod and over weight…I want loss weight help me…

  • Anyone got diabetes type 2 because of a gluten free diet?
    I recently got celiac disease and Im kinda scared to buy cookies or bread without gluten because it means less fibers which means fast sugar intake which means more at risk for diabetes. Anyone more constipated?

  • Can a person suffering from celiac disease eat gluten free oats? And how the oats are made gluten free…n we can trust them or not?

  • Guys, losing weight doesn’t have to be difficult (I used to think it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a diet plan known as Custokebon Secrets. Seriously, that program has changed my life. I probably shouldn’t even be mentioning it because I do not want a bunch of other guys out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  • Being celiac honestly feels like the worst thing. I can barely eat anything and i’m scared to go near certain things thinking that it has gluten in it. When I found out i had celiac i blew it off thinking I could just tough it out and eat whatever i want then few months later I end up in the hospital. So ever since then I haven’t had anything that contained gluten in it. Its really hard I wish someone made like a list of all the places i can eat at and a menu from each place that gets updated regularly so I don’t go and drive 45 mins away to mcdonalds to eat gluten free food there only to find out that they stopped selling it. I’ve been eating one bowl of salad everyday. With the same stuff in it every single day. I miss eating stuffed rigatoni and regular pizza and calzones.

  • Wtf I hope your only going gluten free because you have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitive, Other wise your just doing it in a fad way. Gluten free diet is only good for people with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitive. For someone that has no need for the gluten free diet and still go on gluten free diet makes no sense because you can lose weight if you exercise and eat healthy still gluten-free or not.

  • i went gluten free for a while and i felt really really good…it does take a while to get use to but i can give up bread easily…its all the hidden gluten they put stuff in…its just like when they add added sugar in stuff you wouldnt think…but i found my fibermyalgia went away….not acky all the time and had more energy and did feel more mentally clear

  • No comments? Keto works. Intermittent fasting works. Sugar bad, gluten bad and dairy bad.. Ask a Chiropractor before an MD on nutrition. Get supplement for gut bacteria and Kefir and homemade sauerkraut type food for natural gut bacteria. Metabolism “sluggish” takes a while. Fast for a day weekly or twice. Keto can help with diabetic med use. Keeps blood sugars steady. People may get off theses meds.
