Are you following a gluten-free diet like me? For newbies, it might seem tough to stick to the gluten-free diet, but for experts who have been doing it for a long time like me, this diet is a piece of [gluten-free] cake.
In fact, being gluten-free has made me feel healthy again. I got rid of so many ailments including:
- Painful bloating
- Embarrassing gas
- Geographic tongue
- Red bumps on my arms (keratosis pilaris)
- Dark circles under my eyes
- Low energy
Once I learned I had celiac disease, I knew being gluten-free was my new way of life gluten-free for good.
However, it’s not so black and white for most people, especially if you’ve never received a clear cut diagnosis like celiac disease. Instead, many people transition to the gluten-free diet for their own personal health reasons. They try it for a few weeks or even a few months, and if they don’t feel better, they give it up.
What they don’t realize is that the gluten-free diet takes time, patience and a little nutrition knowledge.
I’ve put together a brand new free download that lists the top 10 mistakes many people make that sabotage their gluten-free diet.
Here are two mistakes… you’ll have to download my free checklist to read the rest!
Sabotage #1: Assuming Something Is Gluten-Free Because It Looks Gluten-Free
Looks can be deceiving! For many years, I had no idea that licorice wasn’t gluten-free. It looks like it should be, but guess what, the first ingredient in licorice is wheat flour! Remember, hidden gluten is often found in things like chicken broth, seasonings, BBQ sauces and salad dressings. Just because it looks gluten-free doesn’t mean it is gluten-free.
Sabotage #2: Stocking Up On Gluten-Free Packaged Foods
Gluten-free packaged foods are often loaded with sugars, inflammatory oils, corn and soy products, and all sorts of other white refined grains and starches. Just because it’s labeled “gluten-free” doesn’t mean it’s good for you. In fact, loading up on packaged gluten-free foods will most likely keep you sick and cause weight gain too.
