Default GLUTEN MAKES YOU FAT

Beyond Celiac: Study Sheds New Light on Obesogenic Effects of Gluten - Are PPARs & Bacteria Both Involved?

I think it's possible we are all adversely affected by the amount of gluten in our diets.
Quote:
The study at hand provides a good reason to limit your intake of "healthy whole grains" and other gluten containing foods, regardless of whether you suffer from celiac or not.
Based on this research
Gluten-free diet reduces adiposity, inflammation and insulin resistance associated with the induction of PPAR-alpha and PPAR-gamma expression.

It would be helpful if you could weigh yourself BEFORE and so any change in weight is noticed.
I think maybe a month or six weeks would be better as it takes a time modify your gut flora. and reduce the population of pathogenic forms that thrive in an inflammatory environment. A week isn't really long enough to allow any adaptation to occur let alone heal the damage the gluten has caused.

Agreed. Sporadic consumption of small quantities of wheat will mask the effect of quitting completely. After one month of no wheat, one small piece of bread had my gut sore for three days, along with the stiffness in my right hand and constipation.

Weight before knocking off wheat completely, Dec 10th, 185 pounds
Weight January 15th, 178 pounds.

If anyone is having trouble quitting wheat, read Wheatbelly.
