@raydawg: I suppose, then, the first "law" is just eat real food (JERF). If you ate something "contaminated", then this law is critical for you. To satisfy my curiosity, was it packaged food, a sauce in a restaurant?

Oh it does after you get exposed to wheat by accident - craps, running to the toilet every hour, chills, acid reflux, that certainly put the fear of grains in me after that one time!

You can always make a paleo version of it. :) Well, primal, at least: http://beta.primal-palate.com/blog/tiramisu/ - not sure what you can do to replace the cheese if you're avoiding dairy. Maybe a whipped mix of coconut cream and coconut milk?

I avoid most grains because of the horrible heartburn I get. Am I afraid? No. If I consume it, I deal with the agony and move on.

I also choose not to slather my body with harmful chemicals. Paranoid? No. Just good common sense.

There's a difference between paranoia and prudence. I find it prudent to avoid gluten, otherwise I am fairly certain that I will suffer from an upset stomach and/or migraine.

I'm afraid of teflon, artificial air fresheners and eating foods that are heated in plastic.

I'm afraid of eating it because whenever I do, I experience brain fog, anxiety, fatigue and joint pain.

This isn't a very productive question.

I'm not afraid of wheat or gluten. I don't see the point in eating it. I'm not afraid of products, food or otherwise. I either like it or don't, or see it as beneficial or don't.

There's a difference between well-founded avoidance of wheat/gluten and blanket one-size-fits-all bans on wheat/gluten. I think most folks here avoid (or not avoid) gluten for the right reasons. I think the diet book crowd probably avoids it for the wrong reasons.

I'm afraid of entities that are concerned about my "fear" of gluten/wheat products. They are trying to imply there's something wrong with ME.

Tiramisu is terrifying. Especially when it's very fresh and creamy.

I'd rather face a horde of the walking dead.

Fear doesn't really come into it. Paleo means no grains, period.

In all seriousness, grains (Bread products in particular, so yes gluten/wheat) make me fart. I work in a small confined room with 4 other people too so I am not very popular when i do occasionally give in and order a pizza.

So its not me who is afraid it is my colleagues.
