32. My wife has this...
It sucks now, but there are alot of good alternatives to most wheat laden foods. Spelt bread from Trader Joes is very good for example...

She has discovered that not only that she has been able to replace nearly everything she always liked with something wheat free, but it actually helped her to a better diet overall...
