With the stress of college, and student’s busy lives, healthy habits can be the first thing to go. But before jumping on some health or fitness trend bandwagon, it’s important to get the facts. Going gluten-free is one dietary trend that has made it’s mark on college students –it’s right up there with veganism (or at least meatless Mondays) or “going paleo.”
But like any diet, gluten-free isn’t perfect. While it can help many people achieve their goals, the nutritional regiment originally used by those suffering from gluten sensitivity isn’t necessarily right for everyone. ACI Wellness Specialist Keri Downs discusses the potential benefits and drawbacks of the gluten-free diet:
The important part of choosing a diet is knowing if it’s right for you, instead of a friend who swears by it or a TV doctor who endorses it. So do your research and hear from the experts and your diet will slowly come together.
