Gluten and Weight Loss
This video will explore the relationship between gluten-free diets and weight loss. The presentation will begin by covering the basics of gluten (e.g. what gluten is and what proteins it is composed of). We will then proceed to examine why gluten is beneficial for our health and why it should be a part of our diets. Then, we will delve into exploring why, if gluten has numerous health benefits, it is still somehow associated with weight loss. We will differentiate the weight loss seen as a part of gluten-free diets due to lifestyle factors from weight loss that is achieved due to avoiding gluten. After this, we will explore the cons of a gluten-free diet and will conclude by discussing how to eliminate gluten from your diet in a healthy manner.
