gluten free if not celiac?
After seeing a presentation called "Wheat Belly" recently, I am interested in trying to go Gluten free. I am not celiac, at least I don’t think so, I’ve never even heard about it until last week. I just would like to enjoy some of the benefits this presentation says can be achieved by going gluten free, like relief from arthritic joint pain..
My first question would be, can you be "almost" gluten free? in other words, do I need to be all in, or will a major reduction in gluten be beneficial?
There are many things I eat that I am not sure I want to cut out completely. at least not indefinitely. for instance, beer, beer has wheat and other grains, I am not a heavy drinker but, I don't see me going for any length of time without beer.
(no great story ever started with "I'll have a salad")
Any feedback or suggestions would be welcome.
