    I feel awesome after a cup of coffee. I feel like garbage after eating wheat.

    Study debunked.

    My understanding is that when your body's been jacked for so long, it can cross react with just about anything. Given time and healing, and strict adherence, it may stop doing so.

    Does coffee make you feel like crap? Are you diagnosed with celiac disease? Do you have a serious autoimmune condition? Then drop it for 30 days, reintroduce, and see what happens. You may get headaches, but you will not die from being without coffee for a month, I promise. I dropped all sorts of stuff back in December, reintroduced, and found out that with the exception of alcohol, not much interferes with my day-to-day. I've also been paleo for over a year. I also note that Robb Frickin' Wolf, Mister "I was going to have my bowel resectioned at 27 until I found paleo", drinks coffee prolifically. So in my book, it's a case-by-case basis.

    I feel great after my cup of half-caff. I like the taste, I like the ritual, I am not giving it up anytime soon.

    Final note: Health Home Economist is run by a WAPF board member. WAPF has a history of being against coffee and chocolate. Keep that in mind when reading her or Cheeseslave's site.

    I can't quit my BFF, coffee. It never makes me feel bad. Actually my Aunt was talking about a study just a week or so ago that said drinking up to 3 cups of coffee per day was good for...something I can't remember! I'll have to ask her again.

    I see no peer-reviewed research on coffee and gluten reactivity. I tracked the blog you linked back to a doctor who claims it's "internal laboratory research" but does not reveal any of the science, what tests were used, what the proteins are, or anything else. He then links to a specific lab testing company as the place to get tested for this sensitivity. All that pushes my scam buttons. There's no information that I can find on this on any of the celiac association websites or in any good medical/scientific journals, so it seems quite questionable to me.

    Dr. David Clark DC, a functional neurologist and endocrinologist - "DC" - that debunks it.
