Gluten is evil.
Gluten can cause weight gain and weight loss. Gluten can damage the GI tract and that can cause malabsorption. We need our guts to be in optimal health. It’s important for a lot of reasons! It breaks down the food we eat so that it can be absorbed, it disperses the vitamins and minerals. Some foods are actually resistant to our digestive systems – beans are an example. When these foods don’t really get along with our guts, then an autoimmune issue happens. Some reactions to food are not immediate, and progress over time – in most cases. When it builds overtime, it will break down your GI tract causing leaky gut.
People don’t always take “gluten free” seriously, but they should. It’s a very real condition. Gluten can cause inflammation of the joints and muscles – this is what I have experienced. Gluten can also cause belly fat – also something I have dealt with.
Even when you cut it out for a week, you will feel a difference. I know I do. I’m down 12 lbs. now and the cramps in my legs and feet are gone. It’s crazy how your body reacts when given the right fuel.
