I’m coeliac so I eat gluten-free. My  biggest pointer would be to try to have natural foods as much as possible, instead of substitutes. I don’t eat a lot of gluten-free pasta – instead I eat lots of brown rice beause it’s naturally gluten-free.

I also love quinoa, and eat potatoes loads.

I think generally eating ‘natural’ helps the body a lot more. It very well could be the gluten/wheat that gives people headaches, but it could be that by cutting it out, you choose to eat healthier choices, like a salad for lunch instead of a sandwich. Or meat with potatoes and veg instead of convenience food. That’s what can help people feel better.

I must say though, when I was first diagnosed I went vegan for 2 months to fill my body with veg and nutrients – it was the best I have EVER felt. It was hard – REALLY hard to make gluten-free vegan meals, but oh my god I felt incredible. It was too hard to keep up in day-to-day life (especially being gluten-free – no salad wraps!) but I do still think that I should make more of an effort and go back to it a few times a week. It really did change my body in amazing ways.
