Its time to start the experiment. Its all about food .... Gluten Free food!
After my last blood tests for cholesterol etc, I was good for a little while only. Then came the nights out, the Tapas Bar and Restaurant week, I haven't been good at all and I have suffered for it.
Lets not talk about the alcohol which I have been consuming copious amounts of, but lets talk about gluten. I thought it was only wheat that I had developed an intolerance to, but nope its gluten. It made me bloated and gassy which wasn't very pleasant at all.
So I have decided to experiment, to avoid gluten as much as I can for one month and see if it makes a difference. I also have declared a one month ban on alcohol. Well maybe not a total ban. a drink now and again cant be all that bad!So for the last few days I have been really good and trying to avoid gluten, and its not that easy...... no cakes, biscuits, malted stuff and there is a debate about Oats having gluten as well. Our Supermarket does stock some gluten free food and I also bought a packet of "bake your own gluten free bread" which I have yet to bake.
Will I make it through one month of gluten free food? Will it make a difference to my gassy moments?
Well one can only try!
