zucchini noodles

If you could expedite weight loss, build muscle faster, or just improve in your sport, you’d do it, right? It turns out that removing gluten from your diet may be the magic bullet. Regardless of whether or not you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, the human body cannot break down gluten, or completely digest it, which may cause extra stress, more fatigue, and less oxygen delivered to muscles when needed. So if you want to get that edge, try going gluten-free (1).
