People avoid gluten consumption for a variety of reasons. Adherents of a gluten free diet do not eat foods containing wheat, barley, rye or triticale. Oats are often excluded as well. Journaling one's progress through a gluten free diet can be a good method of tracking the effectiveness of the diet. In cases of celiac disease or gluten insensitivity a daily log of symptom appearance is a handy way to track diet effectiveness. Perceived health benefits, when notated, can attest to the diet's efficacy.
