No, some people find it difficult to digest and so it stays in their intestines and creates gas, which causes uncomfortable bloating, which can sometimes make you appear larger than you are.

The connection between gluten and weight gain, is that when you eat something high in gluten like a slice of bread. The sugars that are absorbed into the bloodstream, are absorbed a little too rapidly and this causes high blood glucose levels, which stimulate the production of insulin. Insulin is a hormone, which cause glucose to be converted and stored as fat in adipose cells.

Therefore eating gluten can cause fat storage on the body.
