you may need to go without gluten for a long time before you notice that you do have negative affects. it took me about 6 months to notice

If you get stressed out eat some catnip and go to sleep

Hi, you sound a lot like me! I really think I would feel tip top if I ate strictly paleo, but find that the effects of adding things back in are pretty minor, as long as I keep the amounts limited. For example, wheat once a week in the form of a really good sandwich or pizza seems to be OK, but a few weeks ago we had family visiting and I ended up eating processed grains throughout a few days and felt pretty nasty and bloated by the time everyone left. I think of paleo as my "base" diet with the non-paleo stuff as accessories.

Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache

I am not 100% paleo, but I do agree with the concept and try to mostly following the guidelines. I guess I don't follow it completely is because that I don't feel a negative effect from gluten like others do. I do keep my wheat/bean/sugar intake at a very low minimum though and I only use the really high quality when I do eat it. I know many won't agree, but I think any real food is OK as long as it is not processed and comes from very high quality farming. I just really love all the creative ways paleo teaches us to use ingredients with very high nutritional value as alternatives to processed products.
