Miley Cyrus promotes gluten-free diet, gets slammed by health expert
HollywoodNews.com: Miley Cyrus was recently accused of an eating disorder as she apparently looked thinner than usual, but she is now explaining that it’s all due to her gluten-free eating habits.
Cyrus recently took to Twitter to reveal that she suffers a gluten and lactose allergy which has her on a very special diet, states UsMagazine.com. And apparently she thinks everyone should try it with her.
“Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won’t go back!” Cyrus commented to a fan on Twitter.
However, registered dietitian and food industry consultant Rachel Begun commented that the diet should most likely be for those who have been recommended to go on it.
“People who go gluten-free may gain weight if they rely mostly on highly-processed gluten free foods, many of which tend to be higher in fat, calories and sugar than their gluten-containing counterparts,” Begun commented.
And other experts agree: “There’s absolutely no evidence that a gluten-free diet promotes weight loss,” Karen Ansel, a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, commented.
