The Kardashians, Jessica Alba and More Stars Who Strictly Follow This Diet
Are you struggling to lose weight? Does the number on the scale refuse to budge no matter how much you exercise or what diet you try? Experts say the culprit behind unexplained weight gain might not be the quantity, but actually the quality of food you’re eating.
Some people are intolerant to certain food groups, especially gluten. That’s why many celebrities are up in arms about grains and refined flour, which can lead to inflammation, irritable bowel and other uncomfortable symptoms in people who are intolerant to gluten or suffer from coeliac disease.
According to experts, a gluten-free diet restricts all foods that contain a protein called gluten which is typically present in barley, rye, and wheat. This diet is extremely effective for people who suffer from gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
People with this autoimmune disease have difficulty digesting gluten, which can cause damage to their intestines and triggers symptoms like bloating, nausea, fatigue, and malabsorption of nutrients. The actual symptoms may vary from patient to patient so it’s best to consult with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet.
Plenty of celebrities follow a strict gluten-free diet which allows them to live a healthy, guilt-free lifestyle, but more importantly, help them lose weight!
In 2016, the famous reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian decided to commit to a new lifestyle and she even asked her family to join her on her new diet. She decided to get rid of every single food that contained dairy and gluten from the pantry and the fridge.
Since then, she has noticed significant changes in her health, especially her children who no longer complain about digestive issues or stomach aches anymore. Aside from dairy and gluten, Kourtney said she’s also getting rid of corn from her diet, since it can make her gassy and bloated.
Meanwhile, the renowned actor Ryan Phillippe confessed his doctors told him he has trouble digesting wheat. So they advise him to change his diet. Since then, Phillippe switched to a gluten-free diet, and he also gave up on drinking beer, though he does have his occasional red wine and potato vodka.
The renowned actress Jessica Alba says she’s allergic to many things, including foods that contain seeds.
But when she consulted her physician, he advised her to adopt a gluten-free lifestyle since she has a wheat intolerance. Alba says she’s now at peace since she knows which foods will trigger her allergy and which ones she can enjoy fully without having to worry about her health. She also chose the same diet for her kids to ensure they live a happier, healthier life.
The renowned singer Miley Cyrus doesn’t just follow a dairy-free and gluten-free diet, but she’s also a vegetarian. According to her, she even contemplated going completely vegan since she’s concerned about her health and the wellbeing of animals. She considers the vegan diet as the perfect lifestyle to treat her condition. The diet also gets bonus points if it helps her lose weight along the way.
