    Im not as yet, but I am considering adopting this lifestyle as I think it could help ease my sluggishness.

    I am in part because I break out in an itchy rash when I eat it or accidentally get "glutened." It took me a long time to figure out what was going on, numerous visits to several doctors (several of whom TOTALLY misdiagnosed me, extending my suffering) until I, not a doctor figured it out. An allergist confirmed my suspicion, he was the 6th or 7th doctor I saw for this issue over a span of several months!

    Since then, I have found that gluten is a very common cause of inflammation in your body and that inflammation is an underlying cause or somehow factors into numerous diseases. From my personal experience only after being off gluten, I have no more joint discomfort, no more dandruff, and higher energy levels.

    Yes.  It is a pain.  I am hungry a lot when I am traveling.  Though there are some places where its really easy to eat.  Kosher works quite well.  I can't eat dairy either.

      I've found that going paleo is good, as are Indian, Thai, and even some Mexican and African foods/takeout in a pinch whether you're at home or not. But, if you can get back to the basics, lean meats/seafood, veggies, fruits, nuts, you'll feel great.
