What Really Happens To Your Body When You Go Gluten Free
Gluten-Free Diet Side Effects to Expect
You May Not Get Enough Fiber in Your Diet
Whole grain bread products provide the bulk of the fiber in most people's diets. But when you give up gluten, you're left with fewer whole grain products from which to choose—unfortunately, many gluten-free breads and other baked goods don't contain very much fiber, and so consuming too little fiber is a common gluten-free diet side effect.
This situation is improving somewhat, and some gluten-free bread brands are producing breads made with whole grains. However, getting enough fiber on a gluten-free diet still represents a bit of a challenge, and some people suffer from constipation because they aren't getting enough fiber in their diets.
So what can you do? You can try adding sources of fiber to your diet. For example, you can look specifically for whole-grain gluten-free bread, and consider adding more beans and legumes, plus fresh fruits and vegetables, to your plate. Nuts and seeds also are high in fiber and make easy take-along gluten-free snacks.
Whatever you do, don't add copious amounts of fiber to your diet all at once, since that much fiber can upset your digestive tract and cause bloating. Also, if you're still struggling with constipation or are concerned that you're not getting enough fiber, talk to your doctor about your options.
