Diet Doc Advises Anyone Without Celiac Disease to Choose the FODMAP Diet Over a Gluten-Free Diet

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - May 08, 2017) - Although the gluten-free diet has dominated the U.S. for years, with gluten-free options available at most stores and restaurants, the gluten-free diet is not as healthy as it sounds. Although recommended for those with celiac disease, which is a condition that limits the consumption of wheat with gluten, it is not ideal for others. While the gluten-free diet is praised "healthier" than other diets, this is not entirely accurate. In fact, strictly following the gluten-free diet could result in nutritional deficiencies in crucial vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, advises dieters to look into alternative options if they want to reduce carbohydrate intake. The FODMAP diet, for instance, offers great solutions for limiting cholesterol and saturated fats while balancing carbohydrate consumption. It is based on reducing certain carbohydrates known to irritate the stomach and contribute to gastrointestinal issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which affects up to 20% of all Americans.

The FODMAP diet focuses on reducing the following carbohydrates: Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols, otherwise known as FODMAPs. Reducing these leads to improved digestion and healthy weight loss without the nutritional deficiency issues associated with the gluten-free diet. The FODMAP diet offers the additional benefits of reduced abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, flatulence, constipation, and changing bowel habits. Cutting down on harmful carbohydrates, especially for those with sensitive stomachs, greatly enhances overall health while promoting consistent weight loss.

Diet Doc offers comprehensive counseling and doctor supervision for dieters. With Diet Doc's custom-designed weight loss programs and diet consulting, offered to all patients, even following complex diets like the FODMAP Diet can be simple.
