The internet went viral over rumors that Miley Cyrus is suffering from anorexia, after fans and glossy magazines pointed out the singer is way too thin. She made things worse by saying she can’t eat fast food, but people reached the wrong conclusion. Eventually Miley confessed to switching to the gluten free diet and recent pictures show she’s healthy and looking awesome. So, let’s see how Miley Cyrus lost weight with the gluten free diet.
First of all, let’s take it from Miley. She seems so happy with the gluten free diet that she is indeed advocating people should try it, at least for a week. “Gluten is c**p anyway!…I ate today at Easter lunch but all of it was healthy and even more fulfilling! Health is happiness”. She later added: “Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won’t go back!” To tell you the truth seeing Miley so excited about the gluten free diet, kind of makes me want to give it a try too.
A look at WebMd’s content on the gluten free diet explains that “gluten is a specific type of protein” that can’t be found in meat or eggs, but in wheat, rye and barley. So, if you’re planning to take on the diet, it means you won’t be eating any products containing those ingredients.
Basically, you can say goodbye to bread, muffins, pizza, pasta, crackers, croissants, chicken nuggets, fish sticks and so on that contain the above named ingredients. However, if you can’t picture a meal without bread, there are ways around that. Go browse your local organic shop and look for bread made of quinoa, rice or potato flour. Same goes for cereals too, and you’d be stunned to see how many contain gluten. Once again, find replacements if you can’t live without them at your local health store.
Perhaps the most problematic part of staying on track with the gluten free diet is knowing which products are safe to eat. WebMd says that you’re going to “need a sharp eye for labels” since you are going to go deep to select gluten free products because some don’t read the gluten ingredients on the labels as you’d expect them too. Malt and hydrolyzed vegetable protein are two ingredients derived from barley and wheat.
