50 Foods You Can’t Eat If You’re Miley Cyrus [Photos]

Yesterday we found out that Miley Cyrus has adjusted her diet due to a recent discovery that she is gluten intolerant. Of course since Miley remains one of the most popular starlets in the Hollywood galaxy, people have been talking about what exactly gluten is and what it means to be gluten intolerant. (I literally just got an e-mail as I am writing this from a friend about Miley and gluten, no joke.) People have been accusing her of being anorexic, but she attributes the weight loss to her new healthy lifestyle.

Thankfully, one of my dear friends has a gluten (and lactose, poor child) intolerance and has educated me greatly on what it means to be gluten intolerant and what she can/cannot eat without feeling sick afterwards. According to Mayo Clinic, “Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barely, rye, malts and triticale. It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent, often as “dextrin”. Basically, gluten is in everything we eat. So for Miley and my friend Jamie, fruits, veggies and gluten-free alternatives are the way to go. Thankfully since the gluten-free diet phenomenon is becoming so popular, many brands, stores and restaurants are offering gluten-free options to people who have an intolerance.

Being a college student and a former eater of dorm food, I cannot even imagine trying to be a gluten-free girl. There are so many college foods that I adore with every fiber of my being that I would not be able to give up without fight (breaded popcorn chicken FTW). I have taken the liberty of collecting a list of said foods that I would probably die without if I had to go gluten-free. Look away if it’s too much to bear.

      most frozen yogurts don't have gluten :)

    2. jenine says:

      and what is wrong with popcorn?

    3. PrettyinPink says:

      Wow you did not do your research at all. Being severely gluten intolerant and being lactose intolerant I know safe foods and none safe foods. I can eat most if not all of the things on here because the do make gf products. Tho on the other hand, corn, rice and potato DO NOT HAVE GLUTEN IN THEM.They are what most gf products are made of. So i am not sure why they are on this list.

    4. LittleMissLau says:

      Home made soups and potatoes things are allowed, if it is processed then yeah you have to be careful, elsewise it's no porblem at all!

    5. kate says:

      Yeah, I am gluten and lactose intolerant as well and I am also really upset that this list has SO MANY inaccuracies. I'm also equally mad that because Miley s coming out as gluten and lactose intolerant that people who have had these issues for a long time will be looked down upon as "a fad". Its already hard enough having to explain to people that you can't eat the cookie or cupcake they are offering you for your birthday without they blowing you off as being rude for rejecting their gift.

      Yet again I'm hopeful that this will lead to more awareness because half of the places around me I can literally eat nothing. Like yesterday I walked into my college's dining hall that claims to have gluten free options and I saw literally NOTHING that I could eat except a terribly bruised banana. Also, gluten free stuff is expensive. My gluten free mac and cheese made out of rice pasta and soy cheese (which is not nearly as good as the real thing) costs literally 3 times as much as EasyMac.

      1. PrettyinPink says:

        Where do you live? and PF Changs has a great gf menu btw :) ps check out Amy's, I saw she has gf and lactose free food. :)

    6. Alex says:

      A lot of these foods can be eaten if you are gluten intolerant. My roommate has celiac disease and she can eat as much popcorn, candy, chips, and pasta as she wants.

    7. holdthebun says:

      I've been gluten intolerant (Celiac disease) for about 5 years now. When I was first diagnosed gluten wasn't talked about, and when I would say I was eating gluten-free people would look at me like I had 3 heads. It's much easier now to find gluten free options. A majority of things listed have gluten-free substitutes. However there were many inaccuracies on this lists. Popcorn, potatoes, waffle fries just to name a few…. Someone should have done a little more research. There maybe some confusion for gluten- eaters after reading this post.

    8. Polly says:

      Wow I'm glad to read that some of things on this list can be eaten while still avoiding gluten. List was getting more and more depressing as I read on.

    9. Moira says:

      Was any research done for this at all? I have gluten intolerance and I can eat many of the things on here. Seriously, the first thing on the list is wrong. Popcorn is made from corn. Corn is not a grain that contains gluten. Corn is actually one of the main substitutes in a gluten free diet.

      1. PrettyinPink says:

        I said the exact same thing! This list really made me mad… The worst part of it all is she has above what they mayo clinic said about gluten. I sometimes lack faith in humanity.

    10. Deb says:

      Hahaha, it's funny how people are pointing out inaccuracies.

    11. Anon says:

      I am allergic to gluten and have been for years. There are so many things on this list that don't have gluten in them at all. Potatoes don't have gluten in them nor does corn. Just saying for people who actually can't eat gluten that this list is really inaccurate.

    12. Stephanie Gold says:

      For all of you pointing out inaccuracies, you may want to hold your tongue. There are a lot of popcorns that are not safe if you're gluten free. The only way to make sure you're absolutely safe is to eat popcorn that is absolutely plain- no movie theatre fixings! And while potatoes are naturally gluten free, they can be made unsafe for the gluten intolerant if topped with certain cheeses, or fried in certain ingredients. Check out what goes into McDonald's french fries:

      French Fries: Potatoes, vegetable oil (canola oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, natural beef flavor [wheat and milk derivatives]*), citric acid (preservative), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (maintain color), salt. Prepared in vegetable oil ((may contain one of the following: Canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added to preserve freshness), dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent). * CONTAINS: WHEAT AND MILK (Natural beef flavor contains hydrolyzed wheat and hydrolyzed milk as starting ingredients).

      I'm glad CollegeCandy did their research!! xoxo

      1. PrettyinPink says:

        She was saying popcorn in general. Not certain brands. And most fries are not safe for people with in tolerance ONLY because of cross contamination. She didn't do their research at all. Also, most of these if not all have gf substitutes that basically taste like the real ones. So besides the fact I have beyond done my research with what is safe foods and not because I have to be gf. You may want to hold your tongue before saying we are more inaccurate then she was.

    13. Shelby says:

      I have celiac disease and this list was poorly made. I'am only pointing this out so that other people who want to go on the "diet" don't think it is this drastic. Better luck next time…

    14. Mariah says:

      I must point out that you would not die without these foods. As a college student with celiac (and a nut allergy) that is what I hear most often. People are flabbergasted when I say I can't eat certain things. Although allergies are hard to accept at first, when you realize how much better you feel afterwards, giving up these processed foods is not hard. There are so many great alternatives for these. And although this list may be somewhat inaccurate (I would know for sure since I haven't checked all the ingredients, when you have to start reading labels to check for gluten, you begin to realize how many additives companies put into simple things such as chips, ice cream, fries, etc.

      p.s. Why would anyone be upset about Miley coming out with food allergies? I'm not a fan of hers or anything, but if it makes her feel better and educates people about celiac/food allergies/intolerances than what is so bad about that?

      1. Kate says:

        Thank you- I have celiac too and I hate when people say "Oh, I would die if I had to do that!"

    15. Lydia says:

      To be fair to CC, this is a list to cover ALL possible triggers for gluten allergies, and as there are varying degrees of how allergic you can be to gluten, there will be foods on here that may seem to be inaccurate. For instance, people tell me pasta is a-okay if you're gluten intolerant, but I cannot stand the stuff, it ruins me. Same with theatre popcorn. I do not know why, all I know is what I've learnt from experience. If you see something on here that you know you can eat, please don't assume others can as well.

    16. dariuskilmer says:

      I am allergic to some kind of fish and some kind of veggies. But it's not that bad, I won't die if I eat them a bit, but it is better to avoid them. I still eat some other kind of fish and veggies though.

    18. Lola says:

      Who ever wrote this article has no clue what gluten is. Popcorn, baked potatoes ect are gluten free. Many of the other items can be found gluten free or easily modified to be gluten free.

    19. PrettyinPink says:

      Oh and if the product is made here in the US, dextrin is made from corn. If it is not derived from corn it has to be labeled that is derived from wheat.

    21. I cannot even imagine trying to be a gluten-free girl.

    22. Ty Ess says:

      More like you would die if you ate the foods listed, yuck.

    23. Kandice Marx says:

      Of course since Miley remains one of the most popular starlets in the Hollywood galaxy,

    24. Abby says:

      Agree with the people above, research Gluten a lil bit more.

      You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing which I feel I would by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very extensive for me. I am looking ahead for your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get the cling of it!

    30. Ayako says:

      I'm gluten intolerant too, and you can still eat a lot of those foods on the list. They have gluten free alternatives for pizza, pasta, bread and cookies. And not to mention popcorn, tacos, tortilla chips, frozen yogurt, soft-serve ice cream and mashed potatoes are still fine to eat, along with most candy (you just need to read ingredient lists). It don't know where you received your information from, but it is not correct with regard to a lot of food.

    31. GiGiEatsCelebrities says:

      Welcome to my life Miley!

    32. Jillian says:

      Maybe a little research was in order before doing this post. Celiac's can indeed eat popcorn and potatoes. Way to do your homework……
