You've probably seen a lot in the media and on blogs about the wonders of the caveman Paleo diet. Many people advocate the meat, fish and veg diet as being the healthiest there is. And luckily for coeliacs it contains no gluten. We recently had a city break in Copenhagen and lucked upon a paleo foodie stall that did great GF food. We ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As we all know how risky cross contamination is elsewhere. We all felt healthier and full of energy and in fact have now decided to ditch our gluten free bread completely. Six weeks on we have no more bloating or constipation or joint pains and have lost weight. Clue- check the calorie content of your normal GF bread per slice! It's incredible. And also loaded with cellulose and additives and preservatives which are hard to digest. So if you still continue to have bloating and odd digestion on a GF diet check how much processed food you're eating. Of course if you do ditch GF processed food which is often supplemented with fibre and vitamins make sure you ensure you get plenty of B12, folic acid, vitamin D and calcium via other foods or via good GF supplements.
Have any of you gone Paleo and felt better for it?
