What foods do you avoid on a gluten-free diet?

When you begin to make this adjustment to your diet it can feel overwhelming. Start by getting used to the things that you want to avoid. The purpose of eliminating gluten is to improve your health, so remind yourself that you are cutting these out to feel better, not to deprive yourself of anything.

Read the labels on foods, health and beauty aids, and medications carefully and don't assume that the ingredients stay the same. Something that did not contain gluten could contain it the next time you purchase it. Keep this list with you:
