Is Gluten-Free Healthy If You Don’t Have Celiac Disease?

Today I responded to the following query on Haro form a journalist from Spa Weekly. I thought I’d add my response to my blog.

Her query was…

My Response…

Subject of Email: Gluten free is actually a pretty healthy way to eat if you avoid the gluten-free products on grocery store shelves…

All foods on grocery store shelves should be avoided as they’re full of sodium and preservatives to extend shelf-life rather than provide healthy nutrients. That’s why they say shop the perimeters. Gluten-free products from the major food manufacturers are the same. The only danger is not what they ADD to the food to make it gluten-free, but the fiber that is removed. Most people with Celiac Disease are aware of this and supplement their fiber accordingly, but the idiots that buy gluten-free because it’s trendy are… like I said, idiots.

Any wheat or grain is inflammatory, in all of us, but Celiac patients have a hyper-immune response to gluten (gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye) causing a variety of symptoms. Check out the website You may need to create an account, but they have some really innovative food statistics. One is called Inflammation Factor. Check it out. Most people with Celiac disease eat a diet that is roughly 80-90% protein/fats with a 1:1 ration of Omega 3 to Omega 6 fats. It’s healthy because they’re not eating carbs, which are a questionable part of any omnivorous diet. Inuit cultures go 8-10 months of the year without carbs, eating high fat/protein diets and there is zero tooth decay, heart disease, cancer and obesity. The word fat has a negative connotation, but fats are actually pretty good for you if balanced with good fats and bad fats.

That was my answer. Might I also add that many of the “trends” in the food industry, such as gluten-free are more a result of capitalism rather than out health. It’s an area of growth and revenue potential for the giants of the food industry. Don’t be suckered and watch your carbs.
