Since being totally gluten free for almost a month, I have a reduction in most of the other side effects except for the bloating. As I understand it, the compromised digestive system will have a hard time digesting either fats or carbs, maybe both, until the villi grow back (very simplified).
I tried eating low fat for a week and felt no difference. This week I went low carb, except for some gluten free bread for my lunch sandwhich. I noticed I had much less bloating. I am a light eater, with the usual day being a bowl of cereal for breakfast, sandwhich for lunch, and meat and potato for supper. I would start getting gas buildup in the morning, which would increase after lunch until it was almost unbearable. Then I had To lay down after supper.Cutting back the carbs, especially early in the day, sure helped me. Anyone else notice this effect?
