There are many health foods stores and major supermarkets that carry gluten-free products. These are often made with rice or potato flour instead of wheat products. Be sure to check the label to make sure it says 100% gluten-free. Gluten free foods do tends to be more expensive than non-gluten free foods, i.e. a loaf of white bread cost about $1, a loaf of gluten free bread runs about $3.

Gluten can hide in foods you might not expect like beer, cookies, and many cereals. The good news is just about every food made with gluten can also be made with out gluten.

Gluten free foods: berries, fruits, vegetables, beef, pork, lamb, chicken, turkey, fish, coffee, tea, sodas, plain milk, butter, plain yogurt, eggs etc.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new diet or exercise regimen to make sure you are medically able to participate. Only your doctor can determine how much exercise is safe for you. Starting an exercise program that is more strenuous than you are ready for can result in injury and serious medical problems.
