We woke up this morning to news that yet another celebrity has decided to go gluten free..
A role model who has been diagnosed with a serious affliction to gluten, who is taking it seriously and is going to help spread awareness? Probably not.
It’s Lady Gaga. She has ‘switched’ to a gluten free diet. Of course she has. :-/
From one of the articles I read this morning..
A source said: ‘Gaga has decided to go on a major body blitz and cut out allÂ and gluten and wheat from her diet, which is very hard to do.’It sure is hard. They have something right!
‘She has given her people strict instruction to advise staff at venues and restaurants about her new diet because she is taking it very seriously.’ Sounds like she is trying to prevent cross contamination. Is she celiac or gluten intolerant?
‘Her aim is to drop 10lb in a month.’Â Awesome (in a very sarcastic tone) but not surprising. She is doing this to lose weight. Sad face.
‘The 26-year-old singer is thought to be rationing her carbohydrate intake to just two portions a week, and living off a diet mainly consisting of fish, chicken and vegetables.’ She could do this exact same thing – lessening carb intake and eating mostly fish, chicken and veggies – whilst still on a ‘normal’ gluten containing diet. Why associate gluten free with this?
Dear annoying celebrities, gluten free is not a fad diet. Please don’t treat it this way.
I was going to end this with some witty Lady Gaga lyrics but then I realised I don’t know any…
What are your thoughts? Does this annoy you or are you bored with all of this gluten free celeb stuff?
