I do it. At first it was a struggle, but I learned. There are many gluten-free flours (like potato and tapioca) that work great for coating chicken, etc., pasta (made with corn), even cookies. Puffins make a gluten-free cereal with honey and it's really, really good.
I have tried to eat lo carb for years, so I don't miss the bread. The frozen gluten-free breads are just awful, I can only eat it toasted, like with a toasted cheese sandwich. I found some good gluten-free crackers.
Generally since corn and potatoes are OK, there are lots of goodies available. I lost weight but then discovered I could eat potato chips, yum.
I learned here that I could drink Heineken and didn't have to drink beer made for sorghum when I wanted beer, although it wasn't that bad.
I'm eager to hear if it helps you.
