If you peruse some of the gluten free websites you will notice folks who are still struggling with significant GI problems despite strict adherence to a gluten free diet. It’s a really unfortunate situation as these folks are typically quite sick and they have been put through the mill of modern medicine to finally receive a diagnosis of gluten intolerance. These folks are lucky in that some doctor, usually a rheumatologist, finally figured out the OBVIOUS. Now these poor souls embark on a gluten free lifestyle that includes rice flour, and loads of legume products. This is not helping the insulin resistance most of these folks have AND it is exposing them to other lectins which have significant GI problems as well.
Swapping out one neolithic food for another might mitigate some problems, only to produce others. I used to hang out on a few of these gluten free forums but the owners of the sites were not happy with me not recommending the rice cookies and crackers they sold and the folks on the forum were already overwhelmed with trying to figure out how to live gluten free. Telling these poor souls that legumes and other grains were problematic as well just launched them over the edge. Too much hassle, too little reward.
