What is the best gluten free diet?

Personalized diet. The best is the diet that you can stick to and satisfies your taste. There are many more gluten free food options today. I suggest that you visit the ccfa.Org website and get some pointers of what is permitted and see what is that you like to eat. Very important is to be careful when you eat out in restaurants as you may be inadvertently exposed to gluten.
