While cutting gluten out of your meals does indirectly cut down on carbohydrates as well — many foods that are high in gluten are also high in carbs, such as most cereals, breads, and snack foods — a gluten-free diet doesn’t necessarily eliminate unwanted carbs and sugars.

For instance, combining the carb, fat, sugar, and appetite-blocking effects of Carb Defense Plus with a gluten-free diet is a great way to keep weight gain off your plate and live healthier.
