It's unnecessary to remove gluten from one's diet unless an allergy exists.

If an individual is not allergic to gluten, it is unnecessary to remove gluten from one’s diet. Weight loss reported while eating a gluten-free diet is a result of removing calories from gluten-containing carbohydrates from one’s diet.

While this decreased caloric intake may appear favorable, there are many nutrients present in wheat and grains containing gluten that are integral and beneficial to maintaining a healthy body, such as thiamin, niacin, folate, iron, soluble and insoluble fiber and calcium.
