Gluten-Free Diet

Also indexed as:Avoiding Gluten
Gluten-Free Diet: Main Image

Nonfood Factors

Exercise as you normally would. Experts recommend at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity most days of the week.

Is This Diet Vegetarian-Friendly?

Yes. Vegetarians need to be careful to get enough protein, vitamin B12, and iron, so choose gluten-free whole grains like quinoa and brown rice, which are more nutrient-dense than their refined-grain counterparts like white rice and pasta.

Eating Out

Dining at restaurants on a gluten-free diet is surprisingly straightforward, but make sure that you are getting complete answers to your questions. Call ahead to find out what the restaurant offers. Ask what you can have, instead of what you can't, and understand that most restaurants can't guarantee that your food will be gluten-free, since the chance of contamination in a traditional kitchen is high. Good choices include:

  • Green salads (minus the croutons!) with an oil and vinegar or vinaigrette dressing
  • Dishes made with rice noodles instead of wheat (make sure there isn't any soy sauce or textured vegetable protein)
  • Chicken, fish, beef, tofu, and beans if there is no breading or other gluten in the sauce or marinade
