I plan to start my diet on the 15th. Should I be seeing a dietician before I start?.
My personal feeling is it depends on your degree of nutritional sophistication. If you have the ability to detect gluten in foods (your can learn a lot about that here) and know what constitutes a balanced diet with enough carbs, protein and good quality fats, you can probably do it on your own. But I would recommend at some point quite soon consulting a naturopath as opposed to a dietitian to get the suppplementation you need for vitamin and mineral deficiencies that you probably have. Your body is probably out of whack from dealing with that gluten load and your gut no doubt needs healing.
