I recently purchased a Groupon for a service from emeals.com. They offer dinner planning options but you can choose diet specific plans. I am trying to maintain my weight at 180 lbs and I'm unsure if Gluten Free or Low Carb is the way to go. I don't have any food allergies to be concerned about but I am leaning towards the low carb.
I'd say go with low carb. We do glutenfree because there are food sensitivities in our family. But you can easily get a lot of carbs with gluten free foods.

I agree. If gluten negatively impacts your health then avoid it but otherwise it is a part of many foods that have lots of nutrients and many people enjoy. Reducing overall carbs helps many people lose weight or maintain weight loss but low carb does not mean you have to be gluten free.
If you are trying to LOSE weight, then go lower carb. If you have a gluten sensitivity then go gluten free. If you are trying to MAINTAIN your weight, then you want a well balanced diet, and that includes carbs. Do they have a whole foods option or paleo? That would be the best for maintaining.
Good luck and enjoy the food!
