Struggling with Your Gluten Free Diet

Struggling and cheating on your gluten free diet can be a real temptation some days.  I know when I go out to eat or to church buffets, I see all those wonderful chocolate desserts, I have to look away.  But what can you  do.  A reader wrote in to Carla Spacher, founder of the Gluten Free Recipe Box, and her is her 8-point answer:

Q. I find myself cheating on the gluten free diet. I have celiac disease and I’ve been on the diet for years. Do you have any advice on how to keep strong?

  1. Willpower
  2. Snacks
  3. Alcohol
  4. Medication
  5. Financial
  6. Children
  7. Depression
  8. Education

Although it is an interesting article, I felt she spent more time telling us WHY people cheat on their diet rather than going into ways to keep from cheating.

Number one reason why I don’t cheat on my diet is because I hate being up half the night with stomach and/or intestinal problems, half the next day in and out of the bathroom, and days of foggy brain and thinking!  How is that for a good reason not to cheat!!
