So, I realise it’s only been a short couple of weeks since I cut out dairy and gluten from my diet, but I’ve found that although gluten makes me bloat, I can have small amounts of it and be mostly fine. This means I will still be going gluten free but I know it won’t be too bad if I have the smallest amount once in a while. In the case of dairy, I am fine with cheese. No problems with cheese whatsoever, but milk and chocolate cause my stomach to ache the most so I’m have almond milk instead and only very small amounts of chocolate at a time (I’ve tried the dairy free stuff and I’m not too keen). It does mean I’ll probably come across as a?picky eater but if that’s what I’ve got to do to make myself comfortable then I’ll deal with it. Has anyone else had to do weird diet things like this?
