CAN GLUTEN-FREE AFFECT YOUR WEIGHT – Prepacked and professed isn’t the best choice. Yet it is not possible to deny that there is more of this kind of food in many markets. Board-certified nutrition specialist Chen Ben Asher warns that also many gluten-free products have a lot of fat, calories, and sugar, but low in nutrients. Many of these foods are fast food and junk food like pasta, bagels, crackers, pretzels, even in each gluten-free cookie it is possible to have 60 calories which are more than in a regular cookie. It is important to understand that just because something is gluten-free doesn’t mean that healthful or good for weight loss.

  • Eating more

People tend to eat more when they start feeling better. It is especially the case after diarrhea or decreased intake. That is also when the body is overwhelmed with calories. Some specialists also call it portion distortion after going gluten-free. That means that a person got used to eating different things in big amounts.
