Gluten-Free Diet Challenge

"A gluten-free diet is a diet completely free of gluten.  Gluten is a protein found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye, malts and triticale.  Gluten is also used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing or thickening agent, often hidden under "dextrin".  A gluten-free diet is the only medically accepted treatment for celiac disease, the related condition dermatitis herpetiformis, and wheat allergy.

Additionally, a gluten-free diet may exclude oats."

Try a 30-day gluten-free diet challenge, and see how you feel in a month.  Who knows?  You may experience increased energy, weight loss, etc., so give it a go.
