  1. Hi, I was diagnosed as celiac around a year ago and since that time I've steadily put on weight. I decided to look up various gluten free diets to see if there were any changes I could make just to try and get a little healthier. The problem is all the diets I'm finding seem to use other things that I'm also allergic to as nearly every meal either contains avocado or banana as their base ingredients. (I have a latex allergy so have a problem with the proteins that are found in these and other foods like them) Does anyone have any ideas on what I could use in their place or have encountered a diet that doesn't centre around avocado? I'm really at a loss and I don't want to pay for an appointment with a dietitian unless I absolutely have to. Thank you for any help that you can give on this, Linz
