I tried doing it the "gluten free" way for a very short time. It seems everyone that tries it ends up gaining weight, and for me, I got a migraine every time. I'm not sure what the exact trigger was, but they're definitely not healthy anyway.
If you're looking for gluten substitutes, I wouldn't bother with them. Shoot for veggies as carriers of those awesome Primal dips, or different kinds of lettuce leaves to wrap around meat like bread.
No. All Primal food is gluten-free, but not all gluten-free food is Primal.
Primal cuts out all grains, period - gluten-free just cuts out all wheat types, barley, rye and sometimes oats.
Primal cuts out all legumes, period - gluten-free still eats them in all traditional ways, and now uses bean flours in baked goods and deep-fry batters, too
Primal cuts out non-food crap, period - gluten-free doesn't address issues like diet soda pop
Primal cuts out concentrated / isolated sugars, period - gluten-free allows all of them, unless you happen to run across wheat-glucose syrup or barley malt syrup, or powdered sugar cut with wheat starch
Primal cuts out all seed oils - gluten-free allows all of them, excepting wheat-germ-oil
See what I mean? You are going to have to eventually decide which side of the GF / Primal fence to fall into... obviously, if you are asking here on the MDA, you know what our answer will be...
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
Definitely not. I have celiacs. I was gluten and dairy free for about a year before I discovered primal, I actually gained weight. The "gluten-free" bread, pasta, pizza etc substitutes are often worse for you because they're very calorie dense and super high carb.
Primal is gluten free, however, so just follow that and gluten is no longer an issue anyway.

pretty much the only "processed" foods i eat are butter and coconut milk.
just give up the junk.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
