Anorexia and the Gluten Free Lifestyle

anorexic

GlutenFree Bandwagoning gets worse as people with eating disorders claim to be ‘gluten free’ as an excuse to use the restricting diet not to eat.  Forbes.com says, “According to a slew of pro-ana (or Pro Anorexia) sites online, a gluten free diet is an ideal cover for ‘restrictive eating’.”  It’s scary to think that there are so many pro-anorexia sites with girls giving tips and helping each other starve themselves.  Please read this article and pass it along to anyone you may know suffering from this.

Here is an excerpt from one of the girls on the site:

Hi all. I wanted to share my secret with all of you. I told everyone I was going to the Dr. because I was having stomach issues. I never went and then a week l8r I told everyone that it was suspected that I was gluten intolerant. It’s extremely common and Gluten is in EVERYTHING. It’s in almost all salad dressings, it’s in most marinades, soy sauce, breads, noodles, beer, oatmeal, almost All cereals just everything. You can’t eat out because you can get glutened through cross contamination as well. You can’t eat anything at fast food places except salad. Even Mc D’s chicken on salad has gluten. My sister has it and she lost a bunch of weight because there is nothing she can eat and it’s just such a common allergy no one 2nd guesses me. Hope u guys are all well and good luck!”

    Oh, that’s awful. That’s just really sad no matter which way you look at it. Bad for those girls, bad for people with actual health issues with gluten, bad for everyone. 🙁

Living the gluten free lifestyle is not an easy one and can be very overwhelming: from grocery shopping and social events, to deglutening your own household. Kirsten will help you walk you navigate the gluten-free maze with tips, tricks, humor, healthy recipes and more.
