When you want to know more about something, you seek out the experts, right?
So when I wanted to learn more about celiac and this whole gluten-free diet craze, I could find no one more appropriate than Gluten Dude.
Unlike mainstream celebrities, he didn’t choose this gluten-free diet. If he had it his way, GD would be enjoying “normal” foods and wouldn’t be stuck calling restaurants prior to dinners, wouldn’t have to separate himself from his own family when it comes to meal prep, and he wouldn’t be drinking gluten free beer.
Celiac changed that, the diet chose him.
It’s been a hard journey, but one where education is a part of his daily life. He’s like a sponge when it comes to eating GF which is why I wanted to talk.
Lucky for me (and you), GD had some time for a quick chat!
In this What The Fitness, we talked about EVERYTHING… but more specifically:
- Signs/Symptoms of celiac
- How to be tested and why it often takes so long
- The first steps to adjusting to a gluten free diet
- Setting up your kitchen to handle a gluten free lifestyle (it’s more than just the food).
- How celebrities (he just loves Gwyneth and Kim) endorsing a gluten-free diet have done more harm than good for those that have to avoid it.
Listen in to the podcast for everything. I promise, gluten-free or not, you’ll really enjoy this.

Ever tried going gluten free for a few days? Or are you gluten free?
Do you have any dietary restrictions?
Well, as you know I am vegan. However I am lactose intolerant as well (since college) so I have avoided dairy for the most part for exactly a decade. Though, sometimes a girl just needs frozen yogurt!
