Is Going Gluten-Free Good For the Skin

Would You Go Gluten-Free in the Name of Beauty?

If you're like me, you probably didn't know that November is Gluten-Free Diet Awareness Month. And now that you're equipped with this knowledge, let's explore the subject just a little bit further, shall we?

While some people go gluten-free due to medical conditions, like celiac disease or wheat allergies, others go gluten-free to lose weight or simply just to feel better about their health. There are also many others who've tried out a diet free of gluten to help clear up skin conditions like acne or eczema. Would you consider going gluten-free to help clear your skin? And if you already are gluten-free, what sorts of positive or negative results have you experienced?

My husband and I went Gluten Free about a couple months ago. It took at least a month for him to notice the results. He was sick all the time with stomach problems and pain in his legs and arms. He now is almost free of it. I found out a couple years ago that I was allergic to gluten, wheat and soy. I did not go gluten free until a couple months ago. I am finally free of my migrains and I feel much better. People say I glow now. It certainly is worth it. I also have lost over 10 lbs. I hope I lose more and my husband has lost too.

My BF is gluten-free, so most of the time, I eat GF too... I definitely don't AVOID gluten at all costs, but I eat like half the amount of wheat/flour I used to. I don't feel bloated as often, and I like to think that I've lost a bit of weight, but the downside is I often find myself still hungry after we eat. It helps a lot to not have stuff like crackers, cookies and ramen in the cabinets all the time, and we buy a lot less junk food- except for doritos. Yum.

I have been GF since H.S. because I have Celiac, Crohn's disease and severe abdominal issues. Actually undiagnosed - has never been seen before whatever I have according to Yale surgeons. I am now 25 and it is just a way of life for me unfortunately. The GF lifestyle helps me avoid abdominal pain when possible and live semi-normal lifestyle.
