4. Myth: If You Eliminate Gluten, You’ll Lose Vital Nutrients You Can’t Find Anywhere Else.

You can find any of the benefits of whole (gluten) grains in fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins, and, of course, other grains that don’t have gluten. However, people opting to go gluten free, for whatever reason, really need to pay extra attention to their diets, because eliminating an entire major food group can be quite challenging.
