    Default 5 Reasons to Avoid the Gluten-Free Aisle

    As the gluten-free movement is becoming more and more popular, you may be wondering if you should go gluten free. I strongly believe that everyone can benefit from a gluten-free diet, but there are a few different approaches that people take when removing gluten from their diets. Some switch from gluten-containing products to gluten-free counterparts, while neglecting fresh foods. Some consume a combination of both natural and packaged gluten-free foods, and others consume solely natural gluten-free sources.While gluten-free foods have certainly brought relief to a number of people, many notice little to no improvement in their symptoms after going gluten free. In this case, the underlying issue is not the gluten-free diet itself, but with gluten-free packaged foods.

    I've been saying this for a long time — especially when I read stories complaining about the high cost of a gluten-free diet. If you are trying to replicate the missing grains with their GF counterparts, then yes, you will probably see your grocery budget rise and your health decline, for all the reason Dr. Myers states. If, on the other hand, you replace the missing grains with lots of wholesome fruits, vegetables, nuts, cheese and protein sources like eggs (if you tolerate them), you are not adding pricey processed foods to your meal plan, but learning to enjoy real foods like your ancestors did.
