About 2 years ago, I recognised that not all was great. After several investigations, I discovered that I was gluten intolerant. Not a faddy thing that people seem to jump on, but something that meant that if I had gluten, my stomach is crampy for a couple of days after and my head is foggy. Starting on a gluten-free diet was tough, and not always achievable.I love to go out with friends where the normal tipple is beer (which contains barley and hence for me is not friendly), and eating at restaurants either in the UK or abroad was tough. Occasionally I slipped and if one of my favourite beers was on, then I would succumb but with that came the two days of recovery.
