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.

The Diet

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.

The experts reveal eating gluten also contributes to weight gain, especially if you're intolerant.

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!
