Kim Kardashian

Kim Karashian started a health kick by implementing a gluten and dairy free diet:”Workout time!!! Gonna focus on abs today. I’ve been trying to change my bad eating habits – slow process but its working. I feel so much better! Sugar, dairy & gluten free. HARD! I will have sweets every once in a while & dairy but this is a huge step for me! Its a lifestyle change but I’m loving it so far!”

Selma Blair

Speaking on her pregnancy cravings, Selma reveals that gluten products are off the menu, but she loves pancakes: “I’m having a great pregnancy. It’s due this summer. I’m not going to say what (the sex) is yet. Hopefully it’s one or the other. Who knows these days! I eat pancakes all day. I don’t eat gluten, so I eat gluten-free pancakes. It’s a little better, but not much! I have a lot of pancake cravings, a lot of grapefruit (cravings).”

Russell Crowe

Russell went on a gluten free diet during a tough training period: “220 lbs this morning, started at 236.4 lbs. 45 min walk, 12 mins eliptical, weighted objects 40 mins, walk 25 mins. 2400 cal a day maximum, all meals & all beverages. Where possible gluten free. Day 12 of a 105 day training period, there is a long way to go, one layer of tissue paper per day of effort and diet … it takes a long time.”

Miley Cyrus

Miley recently went gluten free due to an allergy which has made her feel better: “For everyone calling me anorexic, I have a gluten and lactose allergy.It’s not about weight – it’s about health. Gluten is crap anyway! Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won’t go back!”.

Malin Ackerman

Malin discovered that she simply can’t have gluten in her diet for health reasons: “About two years ago I learned I had an autoimmune condition that doesn’t allow me to eat gluten, so if I have any bread or pasta, it’s going to be gluten-free.”
