    • I don’t really have a gluten intolerance, but I have found I am allergic to wheat. I’ve figured out about how much my body can handle before I start feeling crummy.   I make a lot of baked goods with buckwheat flour instead of wheat flour.  For the most part, I’ve quit eating things like cake and donuts.  I don’t need them anyway.

      If you know how to cook from scratch, it’s very easy to avoid gluten, but if you are used to eating a lot of processed foods, it’s much harder to avoid.

    • I don’t have a gluten allergy but I know of two people who do and they have learned to cook a lot from scratch as TL said.  Those people have also said they feel so much better.

    • I don’t have a gluten issue but I notice that when I eat less bread I feel better.  I have a friend with celiac disease and he has to read every label on everything. There’s gluten in things we’d never imagine there to be. He’s learned to cook from scratch and avoid packaged foods.

    • I do have a gluten issue, as I dealt with IBS for so many years and currently have Fibromyalgia..so needless to say, shopping at Whole Foods is a godsend for me.  I check every label and usually stay within the confines of the gluten free area.  If I fall off the wagon, which can happen many times, then I feel so lousy.  It really varies, can’t really say anything in particular, but if I limit my carb intake dramatically and stick to only fresh fruits, vegetables, poultry, fish, legumes, almond milk and gluten free oatmeal, then I am doing 100% for myself.
