savvygfbookcoverNPR reports that 1 in 3 Americans is trying to avoid gluten. We’ve heard that eliminating gluten can reverse autoimmune disease, mitigate our children’s behavioral problems, and even help us lose weight and feel younger.

Gluten-free must be a fad, right?

The truth is, gluten-free can completely backfire. You can end up sicker and heavier, too.

Let’s parse out fact from fiction on the whole gluten-free movement. Once we are thoroughly convinced that there is a role for gluten elimination in health, wellness, and avoidance of conventional medical care, then we need to get down to brass tacks:

  • What is gluten?
  • Why is it potentially dangerous to our health?
  • When and for whom is gluten elimination indicated?
  • How does one start a gluten-free diet?
  • What are tips and tricks to do this on a budget?
  • Are there other hidden concerns with gluten-free choices that can sabotage our health?
