Yes, I have the same problem, and I went gluten-free last Halloween. I am beginning to suspect that food combining may play a large role in my ongoing discomfort. Not too long ago, I ate a meal where I actually didn't bloat: two turkey hot dogs and a salad for breakfast! (I was out of everything else!) I'm trying to convince myself to separate dense proteins from grains and starches (and eat fruit strictly by itself) for a while to see what happens, but I am unfortunately very nearly addicted to white rice at the moment and just can't seem to let it go, especially since I make a lot of stir-fried food. Maybe as I add more whole grains back into my diet, my craving for white rice will diminish, which should make it easier for me to separate grains from protein. I'll let you know what I discover, if you're interested, although it may take awhile to get to the testing phase!
gluten-free since November 1, 2003

I have heard that dairy is a very common trouble area for many of us. I would try emliminating for a couple weeks, see if that helps you out at all.

It seems with all the damage our intestinal wall has sustained due to gluten, that these digetive enzymes "help" digest the extra stuff our intestines just can't manage i.e. fiber, sugar, carbs and even lactose. You'll absorb more nutrients that way too. I get my enzymes at Whole Foods but they are available online.
