Now I look at wheat like alcohol, I like it but I have to consume under a certain amount, and not too often. These days I just drink wine and spirits instead of beer.

For others they only notice the *lack* of symptoms they never paid attention to after going cold turkey for a month. Bloating, brain fog, are some common symptoms.

It runs the gamut -- anything from migraines to digestive problems. Like an allergy or sensitivity, it's not just the direct effects, it's the cascade effect on other systems in the body.

Have you gone to a doctor and been tested for gluten sensitivity/intolerance?

From an evolutionary standpoint that is too recent to fully adapt to a high starch diet.

And you would be a millionaire when you wrote your book about how to get away with it.

I love how I'm being called a contrarian for supporting a majority viewpoint based upon hundreds of years of medical and nutritional science and thousands of years of recorded history.

I had the standard doctor's test which turned out negative, but it turns out they yield a lot of false negatives. There are a lot better tests now:

Food Allergy Test | Food Intolerance Test | Food & Chemical Sensitivity Test

Cyrex Laboratories > Home

Well for one thing they are both autoimmune diseases.
There is a new theory forming that most if not all autoimmune diseases start with "leaky gut syndrome".

I hate everyone talking about grains..I miss them I used to eat pasta all day every day until my body started punishing me for it (Ill spare everyone the details) but I tried the SCD diet for 4 weeks very strictly, felt WAY BETTER and now I loosely follow it, but can still get away with cheating and eating grain based carbs occasionally (rice in my sushi) but a full bowl of pasta still wrecks me. So I may be biased due to a potential gluten sensitivity but I definitely feel better when I stick to SCD/Paleo type plans. Getting old sucks...I did drop about 8 lbs since I started eating cleaner and pretty much maintain that weight now.
