  • Gluten-free diets that cut out all food with wheat, barley, and rye have become extremely popular in the last couple (of) years,

  • so we challenged four people to change their diet for a month to see what happens when you go gluten-free.

  • I've heard that going gluten-free helps you get more energetic, which is definitely something I'm interested in because I'm always tired.

  • I wanna, kinda, get back onto a healthy eating schedule and really pay more attention to what I'm putting in my body.

  • I'm excited to just find, like, good gluten-free cake.

  • The reason I wanna go gluten-free is because my girlfriend was diagnosed with celiac disease.

  • (Celiac disease - An autoimmune reaction to gluten that damages the small intestine)

  • And I'm hoping that by myself going gluten-free, I can make it a little bit easier for her.

  • (Nutritionist consultation)

  • What are some changes that I should expect when going gluten-free?

  • It depends on how sensitive your body is to gluten, but some of the great benefits of being gluten-free are increased energy.

  • A lot of people who go on a gluten-free diet end up having more energy just because the energy in their body isn't being used for digestion.

  • I'm nervous that I'm not gonna have a lot to eat.

  • Think about it this way: Our favorite foods become our favorite foods because we eat them often.

  • The good news for you is you're not giving up your five favorite.

  • You're just setting it aside and saying, "Oh, do I have 20 other favorites that I didn't even know about?"

  • - Exciting. Yeah. - So you come out of the diet, and you've got 25 favorites.

  • (One week in)

  • I was just looking at my favorite fake bacon that I eat all the time.

  • Modern corn starch, wheat, gluten!

  • I had no idea there was gluten in this.

  • I might've eaten some since I started the diet.

  • I definitely have.

  • At work, we had free cupcake day, so after I, like, pouted about that quietly to myself, I suddenly found out there was a gluten-free option.

  • There's gluten-free options of a lot of stuff, but there's just one gluten-free option.

  • I've found it's made my life about 60% more annoying.

  • It's Friday at BuzzFeed.

  • A ton of free doughnuts right here, and I can't eat them because I'm gluten-free this month.

  • Physically, I feel exactly the same.

  • I do not feel more energetic.

  • I wouldn't say I feel like I have more energy.

  • You know, I actually get up feeling energized and ready to, kind of, get my day going.

  • In one week, I've lost about six and a half pounds already.

  • (Halfway point)

  • I'm here to turn things around and gonna try some gluten-free pizza tonight.

  • It's like pizza made on, um, too-thick tortilla, and they're sweet, for some reason.

  • It's not a substitute for normal pizza.

  • Better than I thought.

  • I have a feeling that is going to be the standard review for gluten-free food.

  • It kinda tastes like pizza minus bread.

  • Like, I can't taste the crust at all.

  • So, I can tell that my body's no longer used to eating gluten, but I don't know if I'm losing a lot of weight or, like, feeling amazingly better.

  • I haven't seen my energy level change; I've seen my anger and frustration level change.

  • Wow.

  • What an amazing snack.

  • It's been pretty fantastic.

  • I've just found myself, like, walking a lot more, you know, like, not feeling like I need to take a nap in the middle of the day.

  • So, I'm at my friend's engagement, still doing gluten-free, so, you can see my entire plate is pretty much empty besides lentils and rice.

  • It's one of those things that I feel like I could continue doing even after this is over.

  • (Last day)

  • My goal was to just help my girlfriend get used to celiac disease, and she hasn't had gluten in maybe three or four months, which is huge for her.

  • So, that worked out really well.

  • Nutritionists are really good at making gluten-free diets sound fun when they're actually awful.

  • It was too big of an inconvenience.

  • I don't think I really feel any different at all.

  • There's gluten in weird things that you wouldn't expect.

  • Like, I realized sort of halfway through that my face lotion had gluten in it.

  • Now I've found that, you know, I don't really feel bogged down by the stuff I've eaten from the previous day.

  • Even just the breakfast I'm having, it's a lot lighter.

  • I just feel like, uh, you know, I've actually got energy to get through the day.

  • You lost five pounds.

  • Lost five pounds, all right!

  • I lost five pounds?

  • I don't have a lot of body fat; I'm not sure if I can afford to lose five pounds.

  • Three pounds of body fat.

  • Three pounds of body fat?

  • Oh, xxxx!

  • That's cool.

  • I cannot wait to eat gluten again.

  • Internet, do you know this?

  • Do you know how good pizza is?

  • It's so good.

  • It's so good.

  • It was worth it just for this plate of a cupcake and a pizza.

  • This is everything I could've asked for, and it just made it that much better after not having it for a month.
