I can eat dairy and gluten in large quantities to no ill effect, in terms of any GI symptoms, as long as I'm doing so on a regular basis. If I cut them out completely for 2-4 weeks, the initial reintroduction (accidental or intentional) makes me sick for a day or more (bloating, diarrhea, etc.). [more inside]
A close relative is following a gluten-free diet. It's been two years and she feels the same as she did when she started. She's starting to think that maybe she's *not* gluten intolerant after all and got caught up in the hype. Have you or anyone close to you abandoned a GF diet? Did you/then wean back on or go all-in?

Greetings All: I have been reading up on transitioning to a vegan diet and there are so many things to think about. One of the best comments I received from someone on a previous post is that eating vegan does not equal being healthy necessarily. So I have been reading some books about eating a healthy vegan diet. I would also like to avoid gluten and somehow work on making this a slow-carb diet if at all possible. [more inside]
So after all of the recent hubbub about how gluten may not be the culprit in many cases of indigestion/discomfort, I learned for the first time about FODMAPs and realized, "Wait a minute... I have gotten painfully bloated from eating ALL of those high FODMAP foods!" BUT. When I search the internet for FODMAP resources I find a lot of woo and a lot of really bland recipes. Is there a way to try a low FODMAP diet without dying of boredom? [more inside]

I'm a bit gluten intolerant. Question: Is it like Lactose intolerance, where if I quit it completely, I may lose the small amount of tolerance I have left? How much can I/should I eat? [more inside]
Looking for recipes that are low to very low calorie, filling and full of volume, made with whole foods and whole ingredients, gluten and grain free, and lower carb if possible. Thank you so much! I love really spicy stuff too.

On the advice of my doctor I'm going to try to go gluten- AND dairy-free for two weeks. This is the first time I've ever tried to cut anything out of my diet. What the hell can I still eat? Is beer OK? Please help me keep from wasting away...
