I've been paleo for two years now (the only variation is I eat a LOT of fat, like somewhere between 40-50% mostly from nuts, coconut and olive oil). I've recently noticed that when I am inadvertently glutened now, I don't have nearly as bad a reaction as I did just a few months ago. Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone know the possible reason/mechanism behind this?

Yep after about 20 months I can have the occasional piece of pizza, corn tortilla, or wild rice without any bad side effects. These are all cheats but don't kill me like they used to.
However I can't eat these things more than about once or twice per week or the consequences are dire.
I also eat a pretty high fat diet... Works for me.

Mine got worse after 5 years off of gluten when I get glutened. But its a full out IgE type reaction now, need benadryl at least. Good on ya.
