The lastest celebrity to go gluten free is Miley Cyrus. Following recent rumours that she has an eating disorder, Miley decided to set her fans straight on Twitter.
“For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!”
“everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing! U won’t go back!”
With so many articles popping up on gluten free fad dieting and a bunch of celebrities using gluten free dieting as an apparent weight loss diet it’s nice to hear someone say that “It’s not about weight it’s about health” The fact that she thinks ‘Everyone should try no gluten for a week” is a little much but then didn’t we all feel so amazed at the changes we saw when we went gluten free that we wanted to shout it to the world?
Personally I don’t care whether or not Miley Cyrus is on a gluten free diet but I’m interested in the impact celebrities going gluten free may have on how gluten free dieting and celiac disease are seen by the world.
Perhaps Miley will get be diagnosed with celiac disease and stand with the gluten free community to educate and support or perhaps gluten free dieting will stop being cool and she’ll forget all about it.
