Gluten-Free Diet is Never Easy

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Switching to a gluten-free diet is no easy feat. It’s a big change for anyone and it can be quite difficult to get used to. You’ll have to resist wheat, barley and rye. It is quite impossible not to feel deprived if all these foods can suddenly be inedible for you, especially wheat products.

Wheat products are all over you, in the supermarket and probably in your home too, if you are the only one eating a gluten-free diet. In general, unless they are gluten-free as labeled, you cannot have bread, cakes, sweets, cookies, fries, pastas, salad dressings, potato chips and even sauces such as gravy!

This can be quite overwhelming, especially if 90% of your pat diets were made of these foods, just like any normal person. The one thing you can eat guilt-free before, oats, can even be restricted unless it’s gluten-free. This is even harder than avoiding all carbohydrates, if you think about it, because you also have to avoid additives and certain medications and vitamins. The sacrifices are all worth it anyway, especially if you are doing it to treat celiac disease.

However, if you are on a diet, you must be careful too. If you forgot and ate something with gluten, your stomach might go crazy and you will get stomachaches and suffer from diarrhea. Just traces of gluten can already be quite damaging so you have to careful.
