Gluten free is a big fad right now that I’ll probably attempt to unpack later. For now this article caught my eye that reports people are looking to gluten-free as a weight-loss strategy.
This is news to me but I suspected it might come to this with the myriad of gimmicks that are dangled in front of people desiring a slimmer form. While I do know people who have lost weight going gluten-free they did so out of intolerance concerns and not for weight loss. Watching what you eat and eating less-processed high-calorie foods will likely encourage weight loss regardless of what specific organic matter from which one abstains.
