For those on a strict GF, you may indeed be feeling better. On this I have no doubt because you are by design eliminating cakes, pies, processed foods, starches such as french fries and gravies, BEER, pasta etc....
In other words you are effectively cutting out a shit ton (not to be confused with a metric ton) of sugar and hydrogenated oils.
That's it. Pinning it all on gluten per se, gives gluten way too much credit.
Hope that's not all beyond ignorant.
I am sure this makes sense to you but your list of foods is wrong.
You do not eliminate cakes, pies, pasta.
You simply switch to rice based pasta, rice flour cakes and pie crust.
I posted a link here yesterday to Cloud nine bakery in Vancouver, check out their cakes and cookies.
Why would you cut out fries? No gluten in potatoes.
Its not fad, wheat is being genetically modified so it is harder for the body to process.
