Is gluten-free right for me ?

Gluten-free diets have become “hip” in past years. We’ve seen an increase in the number of gluten-free products available. Gluten-free diets are necessary for people with celiac disease, but is it right for me? Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Some believe a gluten-free diet will them help lose weight, boost energy, treat autism, or improve general well-being. However, there is little to no evidence to support this. Gluten-free diets can be extremely challenging, expensive, and cause nutritional deficiencies. Although necessary for people with celiac disease, gluten-free diets may not be beneficial for those without.
