It's hard to manage because it's very at-odds with my current lifestyle, if that makes sense.
We tend to eat out way too much. Like, I almost never bring a lunch to work and grab take out or go to a restaurant. Often, if hubs & I are tired after work, we go out. Etc. I can't go to restaurants right now because a) I'm not totally sure of the questions I should ask and b) I've already been "stealth-glutened" at least once by a well meaning waiter ("Our corn tortillas are made with only corn flour!" OK, great. He didn't tell me they're cooked on a griddle with wheat flour tortillas and are therefore covered in wheat flour aka gluten)
I'm used to having a glass of wine or a beer many evenings. I can't drink beer any more (barley, therefore gluten), and a lot of wines are aged in barrels that are sealed with a flour/water paste, therefore gluten.
When we go to a movie, I tend to grab popcorn and red vines. Neither are gluten free.
On the other hand - cutting out restaurants, minimizing booze, and ditching movie sized candy containers is doing AMAZING things for my weight loss! I'm bringing a lunch to work now, I'm eating more veggies, etc. I'm also discovering how much I missed cooking, and I'm having fun experimenting with some of my old stand-by recipes to make them gluten free.
