    We have always advised anyone new to the gluten-free diet to take the “what can I eat” VS the “what can’t I eat approach” that you recommend here.

    I have heard from various sources that gluten free food can actually make u fat mostly because its a lot more higher in calories…is this true?

      It all depends Amanda. If you replace your normal foods with processed gluten-free foods, then it’s definitely possible that they are more fattening.

      But the key is filling your new kitchen with healthy alternatives. Instead of having oreos as a snack, have carrots and hummus. Instead of ice cream for dessert, have a gluten free sorbet.

      Don’t just look for the exact same foods you’re used to in a gluten free alternative. Look for new foods.

    Speaking from my own experience – this is great advice! I remember going through the “mourning stages” and they do last for a while but now I have adjusted, I eat well, I have learned to adapt my favorite recipes to be GF. Key is to learn all you can about being GF. Glad you are feeling better gluten dude!

    I assume that you’ve found beer you like by now, but in case you haven’t, check out Omission’s Pale Ale. They also make a lager, but the Pale Ale is so much like I remember Sierra Nevada tasting that I was afraid of it at first!
