Miley Cyrus Goes Gluten Free

Miley goes gluten free

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.

  • It really depends on the celebrity and what their message is. Kim Kardashian saying it helped her lose weight? Not good. Miley Cyrus saying it’s for health reasons? Better, but we’ll see how serious she is.

  • Laura,

    I too just hope she is serious about it and becoming an advocate would be an added bonus. Her comment on “take it out” for a week to me is the only risky comment she has made. But yes, I too have told others to cut it out and just about got my ladder out and climbed on my roof! So I can totally relate.

  • It’s always nice to get a little extra awareness, my only concern is how much mis-information I hear out of the newly diagnosed. I hope she spends some time getting her facts straight before advocating a gluten free diet.

  • While I’d like to believe that the trendy gluten-free dieters will help us, it can also do us Celiacs a lot of harm. Here’s a post I saw on another site, and its a perfect example of why gluten free as a trendy diet is a problem for us:

    “I was at my college campus “subway” today I saw two girls laughing in front of me and then they asked what they had that was gluten free, and this obviously caught my attention. They settled on a gluten free bun and when the worker went to change his gloves and get a new plate (as he should) they told him not to bother. This made me absolutely infuriated. This is not a fad diet and the fact you are telling a worker who is taking his job seriously not to change his gloves you are ruining it for the people who that would actually make sick! I seriously thought how many times will he be told not to change hs gloves and then when I come up he wont and I will get sick! Those girls made me so mad and so does this “trend diet”. I have a pretty gluten free friendly campus and you dumb girls are ruining it because you think you’re going to lose weight. Oh and to top it all off at the end they ordered french fires….which are fried in wheat flour (and aren’t going to help on your dumb diet.)”

  • Are these dieters confusing a low carb diet with a GF one? Personally, I’m putting on weight with my GF diet and that’s a very good thing.

  • I agree with Else. As a parent of celiac kids, it’s hard enough to get a truly gluten-free meal in front of them when we are in public, but having to explain that they will get physically sick and have long-term health issues if they have gluten makes it more difficult and confusing. I’ve already been asked why my kids are on a ‘diet’ already, and am struggling to be clear that none is none, and we’re not doing this to be fashionable. If a celebrity wants to advocate, it would be great if they became more educated about the repercussions are of not only their decision and publicity, but also of the actual disease that greatly impacts so many.
