So many people I meet are frustrated because they can’t lose weight and maintain it. What they don’t realize is that they have become addicted to gluten.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and millions of processed foods. Gluten has an effect similar to a narcotic. It can create an addiction to foods like bread, pasta, desserts and sauces that contain the villain.
The more gluten that you eat, the stronger the addiction becomes. Most gluten-containing foods are high in fat and/or sugar that cause weight gain. The fat content usually comes from saturated fat that not only causes weight gain but also raises cholesterol levels and puts you at a greater risk for heart disease.
The sugar content in these glutenous foods raise insulin levels which also contribute to food cravings. Eliminating gluten from your diet can dramatically affect your ability to lose weight!
