Gluten free..

So I tried a gluten free diet for two weeks and certainly since going back to eating gluten in bread again I’ve felt a lot worse with regards to digestive system. I just read that it can affect nervous system too amongst other things. Has anyone tried a gluten free diet? I noted it can be useful trying with autoimmune disorders.

Just interested if anyone has experience of gluten issues?

sometimes bread makes me bloated.

i don’t like gluten free bread so either have none or have crackers or crispbreads.

i like that dark rye bread some of which is gluten free.

i once tried the Best Bet diet which means no gluten, no dairy, no legumes and lots of other things.

it made me ill because i hardly ate at all and got so weak.

it took a long time to regain my appetite so be careful not to overdo it.

Thanks for replying Carole. Yes the bread can be pretty dire. I’ve tried the crackers and I like them. A friend of mine has TN and hatishimoto thyroid issue and advised gluten free. I think I was better for it. Also lost weight with it wasn’t a bad thing! I suffer terribly from bloating so much so going to keep on the gluten free but will be sensible!

I’m gluten and wheat free, not from choice I may add (: Some of the bread can be dire so have a good look round and see what you can find. Doing a google search will bring up some gluten free bread bakers and their products are normally 100% better than the big firms you find in the supermarkets.

Do be warned though that many gluten free products hav a lot more fat and sugar in them mainly to hide the taste of the substitute flour.

I am wheat/gluten free and you do have to shop around. M&S have some nice tasting gluten free foods.
