    low gluten for the rest of us


    People with real gluten allergies will obviously benefit from a gluten free diet, but what about the rest of us? Has anyone noticed a benefit from this diet, who didn't already have a serious gluten problem?

    Do you think it could just be the fiber though?

    I've been zero carbing it for a few months and every time I do this I notice that I'm no longer lactose intolerant, no acid reflux, no bloating, etc. Then I read an article about gluten allergies and realized all of those things I used to experience are symptoms. I'm gonna try to avoid gluten for the most part because I feel great but I also know that it's not realistic (for me) to stay away from it forever.
