  1. Hi everyone, My name is Katie. I'm 21 and I found out a few days ago that I am gluten intolerant (I did the enterolab test). I'm not really sure what compelled me to take it. Just a feeling, I guess. I mean, I've always felt a little bloated but I have never had extreme symptoms like a lot of other people. Anyway, going gluten-free is going to be a big challenge for me. I like to eat out a lot and now I can't have my favorite foods, which sucks. Especially since I know my friends will continue to go to these places without me. They don't understand that I can't eat gluten anymore, even though I always have. It's getting annoying. It's not like this is some diet fad I'm doing or whatever. I guess my biggest challenge will be figuring out what to eat. I tried some glutino (I think) bread and wow...it's pretty terrible. So dry and almost stale tasting! Anyway, I look forward to meeting you all, and learning from you! Katie
