15 Dieting Lies Everyone Believes


2. Gluten-Free Is Healthier

The gluten-free diet craze is a classic case of a Hollywood endorsement meaning more to dieters than actual science. Gluten-free bread is a type of diet that excludes the nutrient gluten.

Gluten is found in many different types of grain, barley and rye, and can be harmful to the digestive system if ingested by someone who has Celiac disease.

Celiac disease is an auto-immune disorder which causes antibodies to react to gluten as if it were poison.

Therefore, a gluten-free diet is the only way a person with this disease can maintain a healthy diet. However, many have become enamored with the idea of a gluten-free diet after many celebrities said they experienced weight-loss because of this very particular diet.

The fun fact for this dieting lie is that a gluten-free diet is actually harmful to someone who isn’t afflicted with Celiac disease. The diet essentially starves a person’s body for no reason if there is no disease present. Why on Earth would you want to starve yourself?
