Misleading calling Gluten-free a fad...

I understand what the authors are saying in that the many overweight Americans are hearing of professional athletes, actors/actresses and individuals in the large-scale public eye claiming health and weight loss benefits from following a GF diet. Understandably, it makes perfect sense if you cut out all the white starchy (glutenized) carbs, most everyone will indeed lose weight. However, to call it a 'fad' is tricky because how many of us truly need all the quick acting starchy processed carbs, fillers, and GMO foods that are the mainstay of gluten-rich foods. We ALL can benefit both in the areas of improved health and weight management by eliminating gluten-rich foods. Use fibrous vegetables as your carb sources and most will see positive changes.
