Jennifer Lopez Drops 10-Pounds on Gluten-free Vegan Diet

Celiac.com 11/14/2014 - Jennifer Lopez is our latest celebrity to tout the benefits of a gluten-free diet. Lopez began a dairy- and gluten-free vegan diet in April, and says it helped her shed an unwanted 10 extra pounds.

Photo: Wikimedia Commons--Ana VitaJennifer recently began incorporating some fish and chicken back into her diet, but remains dairy-free. Sources close to Lopez say that her current diet emphasizes vegetables, with protein added as needed.

Sources close to Lopez report that, even though she is no longer 100 percent vegan, she still follows a largely vegan diet because “…even if you’re 70-80 percent vegan, it’s so much better having those vegetables, greens, and plant-based stuff.”

Lopez began her initial push after being inspired by the 22-day vegan diet “cleanse” undertaken by Beyonce and Jay-Z in December 2013.

In addition to a healthy, largely vegetarian diet, Lopez maintains her age-defying physique with rigorous workouts. Following a training regimen developed by Tracy Anderson, Lopez is joining the ranks of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, and Kim Kardashian.

The method includes work on muscular structure, in addition about a dozen different exercises that change every 10 days, along with dance aerobics.

I've been vegan for 26 years and consider it one of the best decisions of my life (my doctor agrees). I lost 25 lbs within the first few months. Today my blood work and test results are of a man half my age!

@cyclinglady thanks for checking in Restricted diet didn't do much. Still had some VA last time they checked. Heath still otherwise fine, so RCD remains unlikely. My sxs kick in lockstep with life stress, so that kind of points to some general IBS stuff on top of celiac disease. Very doubtful I'm getting any gluten in, but fingers crossed my system is just a little hyper-vigilant, as I ponder on this thread.

I have always noticed that the table wine in Europe is pretty damn good! I am a wine lover and so is my husband but he does like his Green's beer.

The reason they set the limit at 20ppms is that through scientific study, they have proven that the vast majority of people with Celiac Disease do not have an autoimmune reaction to amounts below that......it is a safe limit for most. Also, just because that limit is set at 20ppms, does not mean that gluten-free products contain that amount of gluten. Testing for lower levels becomes more expensive with each increment down closer to 0-5ppms, which translates into higher priced products. Unless you eat a lot of processed gluten-free food, which can have a cumulative affect for some, most people do well with the 20ppm limit.

I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.

Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval. Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers. Best of luck!
