When a slimmed-down and ab-tastic Miley Cyrus revealed she's been on a gluten-free diet because of a food allergy, many of her fans reportedly decided to follow suit in search of similar results.

But celebrity trainer Lalo Fuentes — who doesn't work with Miley, 19, but trains Emily VanCamp (Revenge) and Joseph Morgan (Vampire Diaries) – revealed there are pros and cons of this diet trend!

What are they? See his diet tips after the jump.

"People who go on a Gluten-Free diet usually do it because of a chronic digestive disorder called celiac disease," Lalo explained, in an interview with Celebuzz.

"Some of the symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea or constipation and even unexplained weight loss. It is a pretty common disease affecting one in every 150 people in America."

"Then we have other people who do it because everybody is doing it," he added.

"They want to try something new. The misconception is that because something is gluten free, it must be healthy and won’t make you gain weight -- which is wrong."

Lalo said there are important differences to note.

"If you compare a regular product with a gluten free product, very often you will find that the gluten free product contains more calories, fat and carbs than the regular product. Going on a Gluten-Free diet without educating yourself properly could lead to nutritional deficiencies that regular whole grain products provide."

There are benefits, however.

Lalo explained, "By starting a Gluten-Free diet, you will tend to stop eating your regular processed food and instead start eating fruits, vegetables and lean proteins. All that healthy eating that will soon lead you to weight loss."

    Looks great here. Then it went downhill.

  • jackieallure

    I bet she thinks being super skinny is hot, and that she looks fine. No doubt has to do with wanting to look good for Liam, but does she know that she looks YOUNGER now? And that her hair looks DEAD vs. soft and flowy like it used to? Shocker. Maybe she should focus on eating well, exercising and realizing gluten free is just an excuse for 'skinny'.

    I wish I had her body GRRRRR so jealous!

  • Waffles512

    I am so jealous of her body *sigh*

  • Waffles512

    I wish I looked like her. I exercise so much and eat very healthy like very and yet I still can't seem to slim down as much as her *sigh* she is very pretty :)

  • allegra

    she isn't too thin, she's happy with her own body leave her alone.

  • regentroy

    Her boobs just want their FREEDOM. I'd like see a lot more of them and her bod before gravity gets a good hold on them.

    I agree with you 100% I have Celiac's and did't experience the GI effects however, I had chronic fatigue, and MANY other health problems caused by eating a diet containing gluten. After a blood test came back positive for gluten sensitivity (I know it isn't always accurate) my Dr. recommended that I try a gluten free diet to see if it made me feel better and it did... maybe she hasn't been diagnosed with Celiac's but eliminating gluten and feeling better is definitely an indication that you may suffer from it. Eventually another Dr. made me get tested for Celiac's and sure enough I had Celiac' s... when I first started the diet I lost about 10 lbs and I had already been like a size 4 so I can definitely understand why she lost weight... you can't eat all the junk your used to and I think that's what people mean when they say that it's a "healthier diet." I wish people would cut her a break, she's just doing what she feels makes her feel better...

    Gluten intolerance/allergy is not the same as Celiac Disease.

    hey everyone i would just like to say for the record that i also have a gluten and lactose allergy, when you get diagnosed with these issues it is a life changing thing that you have to deal with it does make you loose weight but it doesnt just happen over night you take incontroll of all the ingredients in foods that you eat because people with this problem have no choice in the matter the side effects of eating gluten ect when you have these allergeys are horrible in the past i have had my stomach swell to looking 6 months pregnant and have back pain i also had extreme vommiting and stomach pains it makes you very tired and so on but i do tell you i lost 3 and a half stone in just 1 yeah once i was diagnosed and learned how to controll it now i feel better than i ever have and i am more intune with my body for it so if (miley cyrus) says she has it i believe her and commend her for saying she does its nice to know that not just regular people suffer from this but celebrities do too it just goes to show we are all human and fact is 1 in every 100 people suffer from this

  • jessica

    i don't understand why you're so upset... nothing said that miley didn't have an allergy, or that she was doing it as part of the trend... and nothing said you can't find out at any time... not sure where your reaction is stemming from...

    The VERY FIRST sentence makes this clear, maybe you missed it: "When a slimmed-down and ab-tastic Miley Cyrus revealed she’s been on a gluten-free diet because of a food allergy..."

  • girl

    i dont think the article was suggesting miley was lying. i think it was more of a suggestion for girls who look up to miley and are thinking about going gluten free in order to see similar results without learning more about the diet. no where does it say "miley does not require a gluten free diet".

  • AlaBella

    Very judgemental of Lalo. How can this woman suggest Miley is lying when she's is not treating her? I'm not a fan of Miley's, but give the girl the benefit of doubt for once!

  • Katie

    She said she has an ALLERGY to Gluten! Not that she just doesn't want to eat it but also that she can't! She is Celiac! Dah! And yes you can find out you're celiac at any time, my friend found out last year and she's 17. You'd think as a trainer you would know that. She also is Lactose Intolerent. No wonder she is losing weight. Far Out. Get your facts right!
