Gluten Free Fitness and Wellness Podcast-Episode 4. Part 3 of 3 with Gluten Free RN Shelly Stuart
In this podcast we discuss several approaches to eating in a gluten free diet, the potential nutritional pitfalls and benefits. We also discuss and debunk the idea that eating gluten free has to be expensive.

More from Shelly:
In the podcast, I mentioned that I feel better eating grain-free. This
is likely due to a sensitivity or food intolerance to some of the
gluten-free (GF) grains. Testing for food sensitivities and allergies
(through a naturopathic physician or allergist) may help to identify
which grains are causing a reaction, so that I’m not needlessly
avoiding safe foods. If you think you may be having a reaction to some
GF grains, consider screening for allergies and sensitivities to
clarify which grains may be responsible for your symptoms.
I encourage everyone to have their symptoms thoroughly investigated by
their MD and specialists before implementing a therapeutic diet or
making any changes. As well, I recommend waiting until CD/gluten
sensitivity testing is complete before initiating a gluten-free diet
because it may create a false negative. Consult your MD, Registered
Dietitian, or other medical specialists involved in your care to
determine if nutrient supplements should be taken and to identify
appropriate dosages for you. Toxicities can occur with over
supplementation and this can lead to permanent damage. A Registered
Dietitian can also provide guidance to ensure all nutritional needs
