  1. Amen to number 1! How many people do I know say, “I think I’ll just cut out all wheat. Maybe I’ll lose weight then.” I always respond don’t.

    Know here’s the kicker. There is something called Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance. This is the one that affects anything other than the intestines and, therefore can’t be medically tested. (Think emotional challenges, skin issues, inflammation, etc.) Doctor’s are getting smarter. They are beginning to understand that messages don’t just come from the brain. NCGI can’t be tested by biopsy on the filia. So, maybe my response should be, “What other problems are occurring?”

    1. Yep jumping on fadwagon of gluten free is not going to necessarily bring you weight loss. Especially if you’re going from processed regular food to glutenfree processed food. Fruit n veggies are gluten free as well 🙂
