Yep, I've gotten that a few times. Fortunately for some reason or the other I tend to be surrounded by more open minded people and I've even been successful at having my mom cut down on her consumption of bread and wheat products.
The most worrying things so far in my life is that my GF eats copious amounts of wheat, said she tried the gluten free challenge for TWO WHOLE WEEKS and didn't see a difference, yet she is lethargic, always sick, sleeps for 10-12 hours a day and gets mild to moderate acne.
I've tried to convince her to go gluten free again, though this time much longer. But since she is a vegetarian I suppose it would greatly reduce her options of what to eat.
I'm hoping one day wheat products will have warning labels liek a pack of cigarettes. A guy can dream can't he?
