The gluten free experiment begins

I’m a little skeptical of elimination diets. Sometimes it seems that going gluten free is more of a fad panacea.
I have a broken arm.
Have you tried going gluten free?

But I have to admit that I’ve known enough people for whom going gluten free has worked or helped to alleviate symptoms. This seems to be particularly true in the fibromyalgia community. So I thought I’d give it a try. I figure I’ll at least be able to say that I tried it, and the worst that can happen is that it doesn’t work. (Or maybe that it does, and I’ll have to get used funny tasting baked goods.)

I’m planning on trying this for two weeks. I’ll blog about each day, but they are remaining in draft form, (including this one) until after the experiment is finished. I’d rather not have several well-meaning people letting me know what I should or shouldn’t do, or telling me how I’m doing it wrong. I think that would just make me throw my hands up in the air, scream that it’s too hard, and send me running to the nearest cupcake.

  1. you should know that those gummy candies by surf’s sweets are gluten free and able to be found at moms and whole foods. šŸ˜€

    you do it your way, I’m rooting for you. If you need a substitute or something, you know where to find me (and Martha).
