Some celebs go gluten-free because they have to—others simply consider it enlightened eating. Either way, stars like Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenny McCarthy and Emmy Rossum are all reaping the benefits of eliminating this substance from their diet.

Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian even took to Twitter to share the joys of living a life without gluten. Miley tweeted, "Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, (physical) and mental health is amazing! U won't go back!" And Kim K. summed it all up when she said, "Gluten free is the way to be."

Going gluten-free isn't easy, though. Being as gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and many other grains, it's in most bread products, baked goods, beers, imitation meats and even unexpected things such as soy sauce, pickles and hot dogs.

Brad Pitt, Ellen DeGeneres and Olivia Wilde all stick to a different kind of diet

There are, however, tons of substitutions available (yes, there is even a gluten-free beer), so you can still enjoy your favorite foods without consuming the wheat product.  

Sometimes, however, our good old-fashioned gluten-filled favorites are just too hard to resist. Jessica Alba is one celeb who occasionally admits to "falling off the wagon." But for those (like Alba) who actually do suffer from a wheat intolerance, the after-effects can be pretty unpleasant.

Without going into great detail (feel free to Google it), we'll sum it up by saying that you probably don't want to jumping back on the gluten-eating bandwagon while you're on a date.
