Maybe, but probably not; it all depends on what the food is. Gluten-free cupcakes, pastries, breads, etc. are no healthier for you than their gluten-containing counterparts. Since gluten contributes to the texture of those products, you may find gluten-free options less satisfying, which can lead to overeating. Also, gluten-free baked goods tend to be more heavily processed, higher in refined carbohydrates and lower in vitamins, minerals and fiber. Many naturally gluten-free products like fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fatty fish, plain yogurt, nuts and beans are very healthy choices. Oats may or may not be gluten- free depending on how they're processed, but whether or not they're gluten-free doesn't impact their health benefits.
