Start A Gluten-Free Diet As Simple As Possible
We’ve talked about what is gluten-free foods and why we should give it a try last week. How many of you start to think about it but haven’t really take action on it? Today we’re going to share the simplest process to start a gluten-free diet.
Step One: Remove All Sources Of Gluten From Your Diet
It is important to check labels in order to make sure that you don’t include gluten in your diet. For example, anything that contains wheat contains gluten because gluten is part of wheat. And, many items contain wheat as a filler - even items you wouldn’t expect, such as some ice creams.
The other common sources of gluten are bread, many processed kinds of cereal, cookies, crackers, pancakes, and pasta.
You can find some alternative flours option, such as rice or oat flour in many stores or online retailers If you want to make something that would normally have flour as an ingredient. If you go out to eat, you can avoid gluten by sticking with whole foods, such as meats, fruits, and vegetables, without added sauces.
Step Two: See How You Feel & Keep Going
If you have an issue with gluten, it will only take a few days to notice that you feel better. Assuming a few days without gluten was a positive experience, continue your experiment and see how much better you feel after a week, a month, or longer. Many people are surprised by how much better they feel, both physically and mentally.
A gluten-free diet won’t be of benefit to everyone, but many people will experience benefits by removing gluten from their diet. The chances are the physical and psychological benefits can be seen as significant.
It’s worth the effort for everyone to try a gluten-free diet for a week. See how you feel and make a knowledgeable decision from there. You might find that giving up gluten is the best thing you’ve ever done for yourself.
