Bachelor Nation Trend: Gluten-Free Eating! Kacie Boguskie and Erica Rose Join Tenley In Avoiding Gluten
More products labeled “gluten-free” are finding their way onto shelves at supermarkets across the country — and Bachelor Nation is taking notice.
Gluten — which is found in wheat, barley and rye — causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease, but going gluten-free has also become something of a trend for people without an allergy or even physical intolerance.
Ashley: "hahah not to lose weight!! I mean...just to feel better! Energy level etc."
Erica: "I think it helps with both! I just started bc Kacie [Boguskie] said it made her look and feel better :)"
Rachel Truehart: "I thought it only made u feel better if u had an alergy?I might need 2 look into this 2!"
But just because it’s a trend doesn’t mean it’s for everyone, so it’s probably best to talk to a doctor or nutritionist before going all in. You can learn more about what’s allowed and not allowed in a gluten-free diet here in a report from the Mayo Clinic.
