Actress Fran Drescher Goes Gluten-free

Celiac.com 12/14/2012 - In the latest celebrity gluten-free news, actress and comedian Fran Drescher has joined stars like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, and athletes like Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, in adopting a gluten-free diet.

However, it's not a desire to shed pounds that led Drescher to join the nearly 3 million people with celiac disease, and numerous others, in making her diet gluten-free. Rather, she was looking for a way to deal with exhaustion. When a doctor suggested prescription medications, Drescher decided that overhauling her diet sounded like a better place to start. So, she resolved to cut gluten, alcohol and animal products from her life. She has since lost 15 pounds, and her results have included more energy, and, she claims, better looking skin.

Talking with host Wendy Williams on Thursday, Drescher said that changes were not easy to make.

"I wasn’t able to knock off that kind of weight in years. I just decided that I wasn’t feeling well… and I went to a bunch of doctors, and everybody had different prescriptions for all my symptoms" said Drescher, "and I just decided, ‘No more, I’m gonna do alternative. I’m gonna to switch up my act, eat differently, clean up my act.’ And so I cut out alcohol… so that went, and I became gluten-free and vegan."

Stay tuned to see how this and other celebrity gluten-free diets turn out…

Why does this help us? So? Some other idiot without celiac disease goes gluten-free. This is not a fad to me. This is because I'm really sick. If they get 'glutened' so what? If we get glutened it's weeks of HELL. It desensitizes people to our problem and makes us whiners and over-reacting. Thanks for nothing.

Laura and Lesley, perhaps instead of being judgmental, if you were to look into her history she has HASHIMOTO'S THYROIDITIS. An AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE which any doctor worth his salt in treating it properly will tell you GO GLUTEN-FREE. She is not doing this for sensationalist reasons. I am honestly disappointed in the tone of your messages. Do your research before you assume she's just another celebrity taking advantage and making us celiacs look like morons on a fad diet. She's NOT.

Wise words Hobbes. I heard something recently talking about how not to let constant demanding events consume you and stop you from moving towards your dreams. Celiac can definitely take a big chunk and time out of your life but it's not my purpose for being here on the planet. Focus is an excelle...
