@Cameron- It’s worth considering whether your issue with wheat might just be because it’s easy to overeat it. If you asked me to eat 500 calories of plain potatoes, there’d be no way in hell I’d be able to get through it all without feeling stuffed. But 500 calories of spaghetti? No problem. It’s the same with rice vs. bread. It’s just easier to overeat bread than rice.
I gave up gluten several years back and I did notice some health improvements. But when I reintroduced it later in moderate quantities, it didn’t cause any problems. I honestly think that giving up gluten just made it easier for me not to overeat. Now when I eat spaghetti, I actually weigh the noodles first to make sure I’m eating a reasonable serving size.
