I am gluten free because I was diagnosed with celiac disease just a few years ago. I lost weight when I went gluten free. Now, I have to watch. I notice that many gluten free options for processed foods contain more calories than their wheat options. Many gluten free foods do not naturally taste as well, and end up with flavor enhancers in them, that may be adding to the calories.

Omitting wheat from my diet certainly makes me feel better.

Hi Julie,
I too eat a lot of wheat products.15-16 years I was diagonised with diverticulosis. They told me to eat wheat for the bulk. We very seldom eat white anything. I think anything you eat puts the weight on.

Hi Julie, I believe that everything in moderation. I don't believe wheat is bad for you unless you have an allergy or celiac's. I guess I'm so strongly convinced because I've lived in Kansas all my life. I see the wheat planted, grown and cut and it's beautiful. I really believe it's part of a healthy diet. Good luck on your quest.

Bonnie

Have you all been reading about not eating wheat because its the wheat made from genetically modified plants that contain harmful compounds that contribue to weight gain and other problems? Its an appetite stimulant.
Here's the article--www.newsmaxhealth.com and the Article is: Lose the Wheat, Gain Your Health
Read it and tell me what you think. I'm a big wheat eater. Now I am troubled about this.
