The Gluten Free Diet Today on the Dr. Oz Show - A gluten-free diet, while restrictive in some aspects, doesn’t have to be all about being deprived. A world of naturally gluten-free foods is available to you. Dr. Hyman, Founder and Medical Director of the Ultra-Wellness Center, has created a diet plan and formulated the recipes that will make going gluten-free easy and delicious. Dr. Hyman has a complete 6-week diet plan

Dr. Oz Gluten Free Diet Is It Making You Fat

A study found that 81% of people suffering from celiac disease (gluten intolerance) who followed a gluten-free diet gained weight. That’s because there is a common misconception that anything labeled "gluten-free" must be good for you, well it's not!

Many processed gluten-free foods and gluten-free junk foods not only contain almost twice the calories as their traditional counterparts, but they can also be double the price. In addition, processed gluten-free foods are lower in fiber, so you won’t stay full as long, and many people who follow a gluten-free diet are missing out on the benefits of good carbohydrates like brown rice, fruits or beans, which all help to regulate blood sugar.

There is a way to go gluten-free naturally with a diet rich in whole and unprocessed foods, vegetables and lean cuts of protein, as listed in Dr. Mark Hyman's diet plan, complete with recipes.
