Can Cutting Out Gluten Help You Lose Weight?

Personal Trainers in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town - CAN CUTTING OUT GLUTEN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

What exactly is gluten, how do you know if you’re intolerant to it, and can cutting gluten out of your diet help you lose weight?

Gluten is a family of proteins found in grains, including wheat, barley and rye. The two main proteins in gluten are glutenin and gliadin. Gliadin is responsible for most of the adverse health effects of gluten. Nicole, BodyBack’s head of personal trainers, says, “If you’re gluten intolerant, eating gluten will cause short-term bloating and belly pain.” 

Common symptoms of gluten intolerance include:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Stomach ache
  • Nausea
  • Gas
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Confusion
