Lady Gaga Reportedly Goes Gluten-Free To Lose Weight

Huffington Post

Although there is little scientific evidence that a gluten allergy exists, celiac disease is a condition that prevents patients from being able to digest gluten. "Gluten sensitivity" is a medical condition that makes digesting gluten difficult, but no ...

Gaga also allegedly indulges on gluten-free cookies when her sweet tooth hits.

With the high concentration of fats and sugars is that not defeating her objective ?? why not eat fresh fruit if she needs a sugar rush ??

Ha David, I read this story yesterday on line, and chuckled to myself when I got to the part about the cookies. As if gluten free means magically calorie free :o If only..... B)

I laugh when people go "gluten-free" to lose weight. Because they won't get sick if they do eat gluten by accident... Not to mention, going gluten free sure it isn't a diet to lose weight if you never get glutenated and your small intestines aren't damaged. Low-carb would be a better term.

When my daughter was diagnosed, we both went gluten-free because there's only the 2 of us in the house. She has started to gain weight and my weight has not been affected one little bit by it, why would it? It's not like cutting out sugar or carbs or fats or anything, the gluten free baking has just as much sugar in it as our regular ones used to, I just substitute the type of flour, nothing else. Wow, she's an odd one.

Oh, excellent, at least someone who had some knowledge on the topic was working on the comments section over there ! Maybe my berating people for years in different venues, is having some small ripple effect ! LOL.

Hey, if Gaga wants to try it, let her, perhaps she will discover something, as there is a high percentage of people of Italian heritage with celiac. She does have the pale skin... wouldn't that be a hoot.

LOL! It sure would be a surprise if her skinny "I was born this way" body started to actually absorb more food.

and...I would KILL to eat a cheeseburger :(

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
