  1. Hi Everyone, I'm new here! I actually do not have Celiac Disease, I had both the blood test and biopsy, but I must be gluten intolerant or allergic. I diagnosed myself almost two years ago after switching from low carb eating to Weight Watchers, I started having bad symptoms that I narrowed down to eating wheat. Symptoms were mostly intestinal (bloating and gas) but after giving up wheat I felt better in a lot of ways. Problem is, I cheat a lot, especially during the holidays. I can't seem to find the willpower to stick with it. I need to lose quite a bit of weight too. Any words of wisdom? Also, my gastroenterologist said to just keep wheat to a minimum, I know thats not good advice. I suspect I have other food allergies, mainly tomatoes and onions. I don't know who I should see next, allergy doctor, nutritionist, or if I should just continue on my own doing what my body tells me to do.
