What are the symptoms of celiac disease?

Celiac disease, or gluten intolerance, is an autoimmune disease.  People with celiac disease have a strong, negative reaction to all foods containing gluten.  Celiac disease symptoms vary by patient; some people with celiac experience little or no symptoms, while some suffer from severe malabsorption or mineral and vitamin deficiencies, such as vitamin B12 deficiency.  Symptoms include stomach cramps, diarrhea, rapid weight loss, and bloating.

What foods contain gluten?

Gluten is a protein that acts as a binder in certain grains, including wheat, barley, rye, and spelt.  Safe grains for people with gluten intolerance or gluten allergies are rice, corn, amaranth, millet, quinoa, sorghum, and teff.

15 Gluten-Free Glitterati, from Aniston to Zooey

Monday, June 13th, 2011

 

 

For many celebs, gluten-free dieting is not just about Celiac.

15 GLUTEN-FREE GLITTERATI, FROM ANISTON TO ZOOEY, WWW.B12PATCH.COM

It’s a light, gentler diet: that’s what today’s celebrities have to say about gluten-free dieting, a food plan which eliminates all products which contain gluten, a protein which occurs naturally in wheat, rye and barley.

The gluten-free diet evolved as a treatment for celiac disease, a gastrointestinal disorder that affects 1 in 133 US citizens. It seems that today’s hottest entertainment A-listers have gluten intolerance; celebrities such as indie-star Zooey Deschanel and The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck have gone off gluten-rich breads, pastries and pasta in lieu of gluten-free specialty goods.

So, where do the rich and famous go to indulge in celiac-friendly treats? To BabyCakes, which has branches in Los Angeles, New York and Orlando, and specializes in baked goods that are free of refined sugar, gluten, casein, soy, wheat and animal products such as eggs and milk.

Don’t be a Glutton for Gluten

Here are 15 celebrities who have shared their experiences about gluten-free dieting:

1) Zooey Deschanel once guested on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, demanding that contestants concoct a vegan gourmet meal for her that was also gluten-free and soy-free. Zooey has since given up the vegan lifestyle, but remains true to gluten-free living, given that she is allergic to the wheat protein.

2) Comedienne Jenny McCarthy believes that her son, Evan, developed autism from a rubella vaccine. She attributes his current well-being and decreased symptoms of autism to a gluten-free diet.  “We believe what helped Evan recover was starting a gluten-free, casein-free diet, vitamin supplementation, detox of metals, and antifungals for yeast overgrowth that plagued his intestines,” said the outspoken activist to CNN.com.

3) Gwyneth Paltrow published her favorite gluten-free recipes on her website, Goop.com.  Although she is not a sufferer of celiac disease or gluten allergy, Gwyneth claims that cutting gluten out of her life has helped her maintain a healthy weight.

4) The View‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck spoke about her celiac disease and commitment to gluten-free living on Good Morning America, where she also pitched her cookbook, The G-Free Diet. When asked about her adjustment to what many consider a restrictive diet, she answered,  “You’re not deprived… You’re more energized.”

5) Jennifer Aniston owes her slim waistline to the “Baby-Food Diet,” the short-lived weight-loss plan consisting of small jars of pureed, gluten-free vegetables and fruits.
