I don't have Celiac's disease, but before I switched to the ZoneFast 1-2-3 plan last year I ate the Zone diet for about 15 years and rarely included any foods containing gluten, not for the sake of avoiding gluten, but rather because of my poor response to the carbohydrates they contain It was very easy. Also, I did not use any gluten free substitutes.
Be very careful to keep gluten free baked substitutes to a minimum because most are rich in unfavorable carbohydrate and have high glycemic loads. They will work against your efforts to lower insulin into the Zone. Maintaining low insulin levels is crucial for successfully staying in the Zone. The rule unfavorable carbohydrate should not be more than 25% of all the carbohydrate in your meal.
Fortunately for you, classic Zone meals do not really include grain products other than oats and a little barley sometimes, and they can be easily be avoided if you need to. Same goes for any condiments that include gluten. The 28 day menus in Toxic Fat provide an excellent example of how to eat in the Zone. You'll note there that Barry Sears writes he has included a little bread in the at the beginning of the 28 days with the intention to gradually wean you off bread altogether. You can also check out these 7 day meal planners, and substitute some fruit or veggies for any foods containing gluten: http://www.zonediet.com/Tools/MealP...fault.aspx
