What is the gluten-free( anti-gluten) diet

Gluten-free diet suggestsComplete rejection of products containing gluten. Originally it was developed for patients with allergies to gluten or celiac disease. A complete rejection of gluten is the only universally recognized method of treating this disease. The use of wheat, rye and barley in any form for this population( and, according to statistics, 1% of all living on the globe) causes an increased risk of complications, up to a lethal outcome.

Celiac disease is a congenital genetic disease, a chronic disorder of the small intestine, consisting of gluten intolerance.

Recently, more and more people are using a gluten-free diet to lose weight. It really can lose weight, but subject to its observance for at least a month. During this period, the body will have time to purify itself of accumulated unnecessary substances without harm to health. But is it worth it to stick to this diet for life?

Bakery products Gluten gives the wheat and rye dough a pleasant elasticity, allows you to make buns and rolls of various shapes, makes store bread and homemade buns soft and fresh.

The doctors' opinion on the gluten-free diet

Doctors and scientists still can not give an unambiguous answer, which in glutenMore - good or bad, because not a single modern cereal culture has not passed the experiments of genetic engineering.

American physician Frank Lipman is an ardent supporter of a gluten-free diet. He believes that everyone needs a gluten-free reset, because the uncontrolled use of gluten in many products leads to an increase in the number of people who suffer from celiac disease.

Frank Lipman, Doctor of Clinic Eleven Wellness, USA, New York Frank Lipman, doctor of the Eleven Wellness clinic, believes that 99% of the world's population suffers gluten intolerance

to some extent. Russian gastroenterologist, MD M. Livzan does not consider the refusal of bread to be justified without medical indications.

AL Myasnikov - MD, scientist and TV presenter, recommends for health reasons that the products containing gluten should be discarded for 3-4 weeks.

Most doctors agree that prolonged or total rejection of cereal crops without medical indications is fraught with negative consequences and can bring more harm to the body than good. The danger is to reduce the level of vital substances:
  • iron,
  • folate,
  • fiber,
  • thiamine,
  • calcium,
  • riboflavin,
  • niacin.

To whom the diet is contraindicated

If the patient is not diagnosed with celiac disease, the gluten-free diet is not recommended. It is also harmful:

  • to people who have suffered hormonal changes that have led to a decrease in mental activity;
  • for pregnant and lactating women;
  • for women in menopause;
  • for anorexia, obesity, diabetes mellitus;
  • with thyroiditis;
  • for cardiovascular disease, any adverse reaction from the gastrointestinal tract;
  • for psychoemotional disorders;
  • for any acute or chronic illness;
  • after operations and during rehabilitation;
  • for children, adolescents, the elderly.

Which products are excluded

Traditional dark bread The greatest amount of gluten is found in bakery products from wheat and rye that are completely excluded with celiac

The greatest amount of gluten contains:

  • wheat;
  • rye;
  • oats;
  • barley.

Therefore, it is necessary to remove from the diet all products from these cereals, namely:

  • porridge;
  • bread;
  • pasta;
  • breakfast cereals;
  • cakes;
  • cookies;
  • beer and kvass.

In addition, hidden gluten is found in many products in which it should not be at all. Due to the fact that gluten gives products volume, the food industry actively exploits this property and adds gluten to:

  • ketchup;
  • mayonnaise;
  • sausages;
  • candy;
  • ice cream;
  • yogurts;
  • chips;
  • chewing gum;
  • canned food;
  • broth cubes;
  • instant coffee and cocoa;
  • packaged juices and tea.

Even in toothpaste, mouth rinses, many medications and dietary supplements, gluten can be detected as a filler.

Therefore, people for whom the elimination of gluten from the diet is a matter of life and death, one must carefully study the labels of each product.

Which products are allowed

On the shelves of healthy food, a wide range of gluten-free products appeared in stores, including pasta, cereals, breakfast cereals, flour, from which you can cook any pastry yourself. This marking means that the gluten content here does not exceed the maximum allowable level of 20 mg / kg. This dose eliminates the possibility of an autoimmune reaction even in people with a strong sensitivity to this component.

Gluten Free Flour Gluten-free products are labeled accordingly, in English it looks like this: gluten free products

Often, the label "does not contain gluten" is just a marketing step to attract customers and is put on products that do not contain gluten in principle. So manufacturers are trying to justify the more expensive, in comparison with competitors, the price of the goods.

In addition to gluten-free products, the gluten-free diet allows the following:

  • vegetables, including potatoes;
  • fruit;
  • berries;
  • beans;
  • nuts;
  • seeds;
  • eggs;
  • chilled meat and fish;
  • milk;
  • cheese;
  • cottage cheese;
  • vegetable and butter;
  • honey;
  • leaf tea;
  • natural coffee and cocoa.

Not all cereals and starch contain gluten, therefore:

  • buckwheat;
  • millet;
  • soy;
  • corn;
  • millet;
  • rice;
  • flax seed;
  • amaranth;
  • potato starch.

Gluten exclusion by producers

Gluten gives the product viscosity and elasticity. And many producers, except gluten, replace it with starches, usually potato, rice or corn. Starch is refined carbohydrates, which sharply increase blood sugar and promote obesity. In addition, gluten-free products contain more fat and sugar.

As a result, a prolonged rejection of gluten-free products instead of losing weight can lead to the opposite effect and cause harm to health. Conclusion - not all products with the labeling "without gluten" are useful.

Basic principles of gluten-free diet for weight loss

The gluten-free diet is quite diverse and will not do harm if it is correctly observed its basic principles:

  • consult a doctor before starting a diet;
  • not follow the diet for more than 1 month. The course can be held once a half a year;
  • break the whole day's diet for 4-5 receptions;
  • additionally take supportive complexes of vitamins and minerals, in particular, iron, folic acid, calcium and vitamin B12;
  • use more fibers that are contained in whole rice, meat, potatoes and fresh vegetables;
  • drink at least 2 liters of water during the day;
  • to engage in sports for a more pronounced effect.

Reviews and results of people

Advantages: go the extra kilograms and volumes ease in the body. Disadvantages: expensive. I sat on a stiff gluten-free diet for a little - about 2 weeks, more just could not stand. .. In fact, this diet is difficult, especially if at home all the others eat the usual food, when on the table are cookies or loaves. I lasted only 2 weeks, then I just limited myself, but moderately. The complexity of gluten-free is that if you buy for example buckwheat or rice loaves or flour from these cereals - it goes a little expensive. But I threw off weight, or rather I was blown away, and the body appeared light. Now I have turned GW, so again I gained extra pounds. I think, from time to time, at least a week to sit on a gluten-free diet. I also discovered a coffee grinder with which you can grind buckwheat or rice and bake delicious pastries, on the Internet now many similar recipes.
