The Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan is a book and diet plan that is designed to help you lose fat through exercise and by eliminating gluten from your diet. The author of the book is exercise psychologist and media personality, Allison Westfahl.

According to the book’s cover, it is a “guide to losing fat and getting fit by eating gluten free”. The information provided in the book explains why gluten makes a person fat and the health benefits that result when it is removed from your diet.

The Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan provides instructions on how to avoid the three grains that have gluten – wheat, rye, and barley. It provides menu plans for 6 weeks. It has more than 30 gluten-free recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks that dieters can follow or they can use what is given to create personalized meal plans. There is even one section designated for recipes that involve “No Cooking”. The book also contains three detailed and illustrated workout programs focusing on flexibility, cardio, and core strength. In addition, daily exercise and nutrition logs are included, which the dieter is encouraged to use to help add to their success.

Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan Pros

At the time of this review, Westfahl’s official website features a video interview about the Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan. The book is also available for sale on her website, as well as on Amazon for less than $15.00. In addition, this weight loss plan has its own Facebook page where dieters can obtain recipes and workout tips. This diet program may be good for those who have allergies or intolerances to gluten because it provides them with healthy, gluten-free diet tips. This book has received many positive reviews.

Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan Cons

This diet plan is not revolutionary. It is not unlike other traditional well balanced nutrition plans designed for weight loss, which focus on fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. The only difference is that gluten is eliminated. Obtaining products that do not contain gluten can not only be difficult to find, but are often more expensive and options are limited. This means that many meals will need to be made from scratch, which may be very time consuming for some people. Unless you have sensitivities or an allergy to gluten (ex. celiac disease) it may not be necessary or wise to remove all gluten from your diet.

Gluten-free diets are often low in nutrients, it is important to make sure you are obtaining an adequate amount of vitamins and minerals. Many pre-processed gluten-free product are high in fat and glycemic substitutes, which could actually lead to a person gaining more weight in the long run. Furthermore, there is not enough solid scientific evidence that specifically links gluten to weight gain in humans.

Before making any significant changes to your diet it is prudent that you consult with your doctor first.
