View Full Version : Gluten-free

Hi Linda,

I am about to start my 2nd round. My last round was a year ago; I lost 25 lbs and have kept it off, with no difficulty. I love HCG!

One of the things I love most about HCG is that I learned so much about myself and my eating habits. One of the things I discovered is that gluten gives me a stomach ache.

I think I remember reading on the old forum that you're sensitive to gluten also, is that correct? Do you just forgo the bread stick (that wouldn't be a big hardship) or do you *substitute* something? I know that there are no substitutions on the protocol but there is a vegetarian version, and I thought I would just ask in case there's a gluten-free version.

Yes, I am gluten sensitive. I gain 5 pounds overnight if I eat any. I feel like the flu is coming on and I swell like you wouldn't believe. I do forgo the breadsticks. Remember, on protocol, there are no substitutions allowed. We can either eat it or go without.

Yes, that's what I thought, but I figured I'd check. Thanks Linda!
