Packers' running back goes gluten-free for better health

Green Bay Packers running back James Stark has adopted a gluten-free diet on the advice of a nutritionist who said it was the best way to ensure he is healthy for the 2011 football season. While Stark did not say if he was diagnosed with celiac disease, for which a gluten-free diet is the only treatment, he joins other pro athletes, including Kyle Korver of the Chicago Bulls, U.S. swimmer Dana Vollmer and UFC fighter Dennis Hallman, who have found the regimen has improved their health.
