Going gluten-free

I've only gone GF once before when I did an elimination diet for 4 weeks to see if certain foods were bothering me. I actually can't remember how I felt afterwards, but I do remember that I felt like complete shit going cold turkey with no coffee and that dairy and I are not the best mix. Every now and then I think about going GF, even for just a little while, to see if it benefits me. I was tested last year to see if I was allergic to gluten, which I wasn't, but I think there's a different test for gluten allergies vs Celiac. Even though I wasn't allergic to gluten, I definitely get that fuzzy-headed, spaced out feeling throughout the day, and I wonder if following a GF diet for a little while would help with that.

If you follow Cooking Light, they posted this cool deal today for someone to win a free copy of their new GF cookbook. All you have to do is tell them about your GF story--why you follow a GF diet, struggles and successes with it, etc. Thought I'd share it with my DOC friends who might be interested!


  1. It's worth a try. trust me. I went GF a year ago and as much as I hate it, I'm never going back.

  2. My sister is GF...she feels horrible when she eats it, but did not test + for Celiac.

  3. I've never tried it, really hope it helps you!!!
