8. CON: POSSIBLE DEFICIENCIES
Because you won’t be getting things like iron, fiber, and folate unless you look for alternative sources, if you go gluten free, you could develop certain deficiencies. Your digestion might suffer, a possible lack of carbs is definitely bad news, and you may end up losing weight not because you’re getting healthier, but because you’re not getting what you need to sustain your body.
9. PRO: MORE GRAINS
Going gluten free also ensures that you’ll get good carbs rather than refined carbs. You’ll eat more healthy grains, which is fantastic for your diet. That’s because you’ll be looking for alternatives, such as quinoa. The result is absolutely beneficial, as long as you’re careful. You just have to make sure that you definitely are getting all the grains you need.
