    First off: the persons that typically go on a gluten free diet have a condition celiac disease the short answer of celac is that your body is unable to digest gluten and the gluten damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy

    Baring any condition,the best way to go is eating mostly fruit and vegetables with little meat and little to no fast food or sweats

    so what brings you to look at the gluten free type of eating?

    If you have Celiac Disease or are Gluten intolerant, the long term benefits of the gluten free diet include lowered risk of cancer, osteoporosis and other malnutrion related problems.  Better overall health.  Less risk of developing more autoimmune disorders. 
    If you don't have CD; but it runs in your family, avoiding gluten eliminates your risk of developing it. 
    Otherwise, the effect of going gluten free really depends on what you replace gluten with.  If you take the opportunity to embrace a healthy, whole food diet the benefit is improved health.  If you eat potato chips and ice cream more often, the benefits aren' there.
