Edited , 2 users are following.

hi everyone. gluten makes me feel real bad physically. but I have this immeasurable love for bread and biscuits which of course contain gluten. i just don't find any motivation to avoid them. i try very hard but i still end up eating them... any advice pls how to suppress cravings for food with gluten? (I can't also have gluten-free bread coz they're pricey af)

    hi rainism, why can't you have gluten? have you been diagnosed coeliac or with a gluten intolerance. if you haven't then maybe you shouldn't be cutting gluten out of your diet anyway. if you have been try this and see if it stops you eating gluten. i am coeliac - definitely! i stopped eating gluten as soon as i had a positive diagnosis because one thing that really saddened me was discovering that if i carried on eating gluten it can lead to bowel cancer, which my grandad died of and watching him die ripped me to shreds, i'll never forget how much pain he was in. you have a choice: grin and bear it and be thankful you know what it is or die of bowel cancer. your choice.yes gluten free bread is dear but speak to your doctor, you could get some bread on prescription. i'd rather live that's all. if coeliac is all you have then that's manageable, i am coeliac, have mass allergies and am v veggie too!
