Can a Gluten-Free Diet Help Me Lose Weight?

By    |   Friday, 09 Aug 2013 10:14 AM

Question: I’m thinking about going on a gluten-free diet to lose weight. Are there any risks I need to be aware of? 

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Gluten-free diets are fairly restrictive, and are not necessarily going to decrease your weight unless you also cut the calories you're consuming.
 
I suggest you consult your doctor first, and perhaps consider a session with a registered dietician for a review of your current diet, and the modifications needed in order to achieve a weight loss on a gluten-free diet.

The risks depend upon the current state of your health and vary depending on how restrictive your diet is going to be.
