Low gluten diet for weight loss

Low gluten diet for weight loss

A new study has highlighted a singular fact, namely that even people who are not celiac or affected by gluten sensitivity, would have an advantage in following a low gluten diet.

In fact, a low gluten diet would reduce intestinal swelling and inflammation and lead to weight loss.

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen subjected a heterogeneous sample of people to a low gluten diet, ensuring that the daily gluten rate did not exceed 2 grams.

Compared to when they ate 18 grams per day and when they ate 12 grams, the researchers, in collaboration with the  Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research , found that the sample lost weight during the eight weeks of low gluten.

This without affecting their daily calorie intake. A modest weight loss, especially in the abdominal area.
However, the researchers also found that in the first few weeks a diet low in gluten was equivalent to a diet even lower in fiber. We can replicate their experiment and go on a low gluten diet to lose weight this way.


  1. Use potatoes, tubers, corn, rice, fake grains like quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth instead of pasta and bread.
  2. Limit your gluten consumption to half a serving (40 grams) of oat flakes or a slice of bread (20 grams) per day.
  3. Use in desserts rice flour, buckwheat flour, potato starch, chestnut flour, corn flour.
  4. Avoid buying gluten free products, but eating a natural diet.
  5. Avoid products packaged with wheat starch, added gluten, and for those who eat it, seitan.
