A gluten free diet is essential if you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease or dermatitis hepatiformus. If not you can eat gluten to your hearts content. It is not an evil food ingredient but simply a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. It is not related to acne, and does not make you bloated. It does not cause you to become overweight. Eating more than you need does that. Carbohydrate is an essential part of our diet. It provides us with energy. Consuming a low carbohydrate diet means we are eating more fat and protein and there is scientific evidence that this is not a good option.
