Nutrition & Diets : How to Do the Gluten-Free Diet
Nutrisystem and the Gluten-Free Diet
If you've been diagnosed with Celiac disease and are thinking about going on Nutrisystem to lose weight, I've got good news and bad news for you.
First, the bad news: Sadly, Nutrisystem isn't going to work for anyone who's gluten-free, and especially for someone with diagnosed celiac disease. Nutrisystem—a weight-loss program that includes mainly prepared food—requires participants to purchase their meals directly from the company. Almost all those meals contain , placing them completely off-limits to those who must follow the gluten-free diet for medical reasons.
Nutrisystem breakfast choices include an assortment of muffins, donuts, and pancakes (none of which are gluten-free, of course), lunch features lots of pasta dishes, noodles and sandwich melts, and dinner offerings include pizza, mac and cheese and more pasta dishes.
You might be able to cobble together a few days' worth of meals that include no obvious gluten ingredients. But a customer service representative told me (honestly) that those meals weren't intended for those with or non-celiac . Therefore, the Nutrisystem company manufacturing the products doesn't protect any "no gluten ingredients" meals against gluten cross-contamination in processing.
You May Lose Weight Anyway
Now, the good news: Since you've just been diagnosed with celiac disease, you may not be aware that . That may seem far-fetched, but it's absolutely true (there's research backing it up)—people who are overweight when they are first diagnosed tend to see their weight "normalize" after a few months of following the gluten-free diet.
Now, there's noguarantee that your excess pounds will magically disappear—while the research shows people often lose weight, your mileage may vary.
Fortunately, there are some that people who follow the gluten-free diet swear by.
Unfortunately, there's no easy gluten-free substitute for the convenience of the Nutrisystem program.
Many consumers have requested that Nutrisystem begin to offer gluten-free meal choices, and Nutrisystem may develop a gluten-free program (possibly along the lines of its weight loss program for diabetics or its program for vegetarians) sometime in the future, the company's representative told me. But for now, it's unfortunately not an option for the gluten-free community.
