So I'm a week and a half into a gluten free diet. It hasn't been as difficult as I thought, but far more of my go-to tasty snacks are off the menu than I thought would be. No sushi, no biscuits, and there's LOADS of crisps I can't have. And no beer!

That said, I haven't had any of the gastro issues I usually have - I do occasionally go for a week without any symptoms, but this has been quite a gap. It's too early to say whether my joints are showing any improvement, but I'm planning on a full month gluten free, so we'll see then. I do have a couple of new mouth ulcers - the diet was meant to help stop them, but again I'll give it the full month before I call it a failure.

It's making me a little more imaginative with regard to meals at least - I usually fall back on pasta when I'm too lazy to think up something to cook. It may also be making me more unhealthy in some ways - I've fallen back on cheese for snacking, which is hardly the low-fat option.

Ho-hum. It's definitely nice to not be rolled up in a ball on the bed with various unpleasant stomach issues every few days.
