No, I am not gluten free. I do eat a couple of gluten free products just because I think they taste great, but I do not go out of my way to purchase gluten free food.

Not a fan of gluten-free foods that are supposed to have gluten in them, and don't have a problem with gluten, or people who don't eat gluten. XD

Also, I love when companies who have a product that's ALREADY gluten-free (or fat free, sugar free, whatever) and just slap that on their label because it's what's selling at the moment. Makes me laugh every time XDDD

We are basically gluten free in my house because our little dude has an allergy to it. Also, it's easy to follow a low carb diet while being gluten free at the same time.

I'm the kind of person who likes going into restaurants or grocery stores, and if I see someone picking something gluten free (or low carb, ff/sf, no preservatives, no artificial whatevers, etc) I'll say something along the lines of, "Hmm, can't wait to dive into all those saturated fats!"

I love the looks I get. :]

No, not at all. I tried to go yeast free when that was the Thing. It drove me crazy and I couldn't eat anything. I didn't feel any better eliminating yeast and I got depressed from depriving myself. I'm not a self punisher, so I said, "Fuck it" and went back to eating regularly and my health improved with other strategies.

I have real allergies, none of them to gluten (had scratch tests, blood work and had an MD handle the issue) and it limits my diet enough. If I thought I had a problem with gluten, I would go all the way and have both the blood work and the intestinal biopsy to get an accurate reading and diagnosis. I have enough allergies and know they are vacillating enough to know that just short elimination diets won't actually "diagnose" you.

My oldest had a short lived wheat allergy, but it was outgrown. It wasn't severe enough to do an intestinal biopsy. Her blood work showed a mild wheat allergy, and no problem with gluten. A few years of avoiding it and the reactions in her blood and scratch tests were gone. Thank G*d. Years of her having to eat cardboard was bad enough. I couldn't imagine her having to live like that. (Gluten Free was not the Thing back then and finding food for her was difficult.) As it is she HATES rice cakes, as that was what I used as "bread" when she from the time she was a toddler until about 3rd or 4th grade.

Essentially gluten free in my house due to allergies. That stuff is in everything. Ive been places where they even put it in pepper! Good thing is you drop a ton of weight when you stop eating gluten/MSG ect...but bread is the hardest for me as I loved it.

I have a sensitivity to gluten. Cake and beer were hard to give up but Schwar brand bread is great and Redbridge GF beer is good.

Nope I'm a bread lover!

My wife has Celiac so pretty much everything I cook now is gluten-free. I still have some gluten items in the house, but just keep them on a different shelf.

Nope, and thank goodness. I keep about eight different wheat flours on hand at all times (I bake quite a bit) and all of that would have to be banished. Gluten doesn't bother me, so I'm not going to give it up just because it's become the new fad. (Not that I don't believe people really have issues with it, just that many people in society have taken up gluten-free diets simply because it's The New Big Thing.)

I'm a food snob and very picky with my food. I eat gluten free, grain free, sugar free.All my food is organic and pastured raised.

I also really don't like that it's such a fad because it kind of cheapens the meaning behind it. How do you know some restaurant isn't going to just tell a customer some item is gluten-free when it really isn't because they assume they are just part of the fad and wind up serving someone who really is incapable of digesting gluten? You've got places selling "vegetarian" and "vegan" items that have animal byproducts in them; what happens when gluten becomes the next item nobody takes seriously?

We are not gluten free, but we do have a lot of gluten free stuff on hand for when my boyfriend's mother is here or when we take something there. She was recently diagnosed with celiacs, so I always keep gluten free baking ingredients in the house so I don't have to run out and get something whenever we are dining with his parents. I even bought some bakeware that I only use for gluten free baking (just to be safe).

One of my family members is gluten sensitive, and we often forget it. It's pretty sad when the rest of the family gets some delicious food while the one family member gets a pretty okay alternative. She does feel much better off gluten; less bloated, more energy, generally more happy. But she does miss eating whatever is in the house, especially because gluten-free products are often more expensive.
