Diet Doc Cautions That Gluten-Free Dieting Alone Does Not Contribute to Weight Loss

PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwired - September 15, 2016) - Despite the growing popularity of gluten-free diets and celebrity endorsements of the merits of a gluten-free diet for weight loss, there are no published reports showing that a gluten-free diet produces weight loss in persons without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Yet this hasn't slowed down the demand for gluten-free products. In fact, the Google search term, "gluten-free diet" has been one of the most popular searches over the past decade. Gluten is a protein which is found in certain grains such as, wheat, rye and barley. It has been used in a variety of pastas, breads, cereals and other processed foods to ensure that they maintain their shape. According to, gluten acts as a trigger for those who are prone to having the autoimmune disorder, celiac disease, though it is primarily hereditary. Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related conditions which may stem from gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies.

Those who partake in gluten free dieting tend to do so more to prevent gastrointestinal, inflammatory diseases than for pure weight loss. The health claims for gluten-free eating are numerous and are known to combat such common symptoms as: migraines, chronic fatigue, bloating, gas and diarrhea. Gluten-free dieting has also been shown to prevent diseases such as diabetes, MS and chronic dermatitis. However, when it comes to weight loss, Diet Doc -- a medical weight loss program, along with the majority of clinical researchers finds that no published experimental evidence exists which links gluten-free dieting to any actual weight loss benefits. In fact, those participating in a gluten-free diet may be more likely to gain weight due to the enhanced absorption of nutrients associated with the healing of intestinal lining while following a gluten-free diet.

In fact, there is data to suggest that gluten itself may provide some health benefits, and that gluten avoidance may not be justified for otherwise healthy individuals. Diet Doc wants to help individuals to avoid potential pitfalls of adopting a gluten-free diet in persons without diagnosed gluten-related disorders.
