Who should remove wheat and grains from their diets?
Gluten free, wheat free, grain free, Paleo, Keto!
Eliminating some or all grains to improve health is a growing trend.
However, unless you’ve been diagnosed with a wheat allergy, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, gluten sensitivity, or another intestinal disorder, there is little evidence that avoiding gluten, wheat, or all grains is beneficial.
There are people who may not have any of the above diagnoses and they may just report feeling better overall when avoiding gluten, wheat, or all grains. If you’re one of them, consider experimenting with small portions of a variety of wheat products or gluten free grains one at a time to find options that can be added back into their diet.
When changing your diet, always use caution. Removing all grains can result in an inadequate intake of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and fiber.
