No: There is nothing inherently healthier about a gluten-free diet unless you are one of the people with celiac disease or gluten-intolerance. In fact, most processed gluten-free foods are high glycemic and lower in fiber than their gluten-containing counterparts. If you are relying on a gluten-free diet, choose whole unprocessed lean meats and vegetables and fruits and avoid the packaged junk.
