Wow that sounds extreme. Have you ruled out something like IBS or a food intolerance/allergy? Do you have any other symptoms?

I am apple too. sad it sucks.

bruised IMO and E wheat is the culprit in bloating there's a frightening book out called Wheat Belly by William Davis M.D. which lists the problems connected with the dominance of wheat in most people's diets.

Exactly twinkle If you have problems with yr gut as well you may be intolerant to it. DH is terrible when he eats it he gets exhausted, bad tempered, bloated. i just get constip. oh and exhausted. we've cut it out and buy rye bread I also make Kamut and spelt bread (they have v. low gluten). We both loose weight and feel SOO much better without it.

Also have a look at the Paul Mckenna WOE it's much better for you as well than 'normal' diets. especially if you eat v. fast grin

I wouldn't want to get flamed so I'll say go to the docs if you're worried maybe have a test for ceoliac but I think you have to have REALLY bad colitis for them to test you. Also have a look at the Blood type Diet by Dr. Peter D'adamo if you know yours it's really interesting I used to have quite bad eczema and the B.T said A types like me should avoid oranges and tomatoes and now I'm cured!!

No you can make lovely cakes with non wheat flour (they even sell them in most supermkts. now) and deffo in H.F. shops. you can get better than wheat pasta (honest) grin made from rice. My recipe for brownies is on the page previous to last of the Paul Mckenna thread on here.

It depends on the choc. Bruised The plain dark stuff doesn't but you have to start reading ALL labels when you go wheat free! sorry grin

A good wheat free cheap way of using choc. in recipes and drinks of course! is to use plain cocoa which is just dried chocolate anyway grin NOT drinking choc. it's usually full of sugar and wheat. I don't have dairy so I have made my own chocolate using rice milk and cocoa and it was nice!
