It’s composed of two different proteins, first of which is called gliadin and the second of which is called glutenin.While it isn’t necessarily bad for you, unless you have celiac disease, gluten rich foods are often calorie and carbohydrate heavy. This means that if you’re trying to lose weight you should be avoiding food that is rich in gluten, such as white bread. However, that’s harder said than done since gluten can be found in almost everything. Since gluten is often used to add thickness and flavor to different foods, you can find it in everything from soy sauce to salad dressing.On the other hand, some people have an inability to process gluten, which is called “celiac disease”. Celiac disease can be so severe that it causes problems with infertility, gastrointestinal disturbances and other serious complications. For people that have celiac disease, their bodies recognize gluten as a harmful invader and begin to take on an immune response. This response is what ends up damaging the small intestine, which later causes gastrointestinal issues and nutritional deficiencies.This book is written for those that are struggling with celiac disease and for those that are looking for recipes that can help them in their weight loss journey. Please read all the ingredients and instructions carefully and, most importantly, enjoy the experience and the food!
