I stumbled across this article on Active.com. It seems more athletes are eating gluten free, at least while training.
Okay, so, that’s nice, but they get to go back to eating whatever they want when they are done. Those of us that are truly gluten intolerant can’t do that. And maybe this trend will lead to a perception that gluten free is a choice, not a medically necessary, permanent condition.
But don’t people already think that? I must get asked about cheating at least once a week. And it hasn’t made me cheat, ever. So I don’t think the perception out there is going to do too much damage to my lifestyle.
Also, I think as more people do gluten free, even if only part time, there will be more affordable gluten-free options for the rest of us. And that’s a good thing.
Just my opinion here…
