I have been gluten free for over a month and it is amazing how much better I feel each day. I still have tiredness but I think that is just a lack of vitamin B-12.
I am sure you are wondering what in the world do I eat because gluten is in almost everything! Well, I cut out a lot of processed foods. I still eat chips, brownies, chocolate (OH MY, the list I found of gluten free chocolate on-line that has made me happy about my chocolate addiction! 🙂 ) but I make sure they don’t have gluten in them. You might be surprised how many products out there now are gluten free. I haven’t given up pasta, I just changed the noodles I eat. Instead of flour noodles, I stick to rice or corn noodles (that are gluten free). I check labels now more than ever before.
I still eat out at my favorite restaurants, I eat more salads than before and I check the dressing ingredients on the restaurant websites.
My intestinal track loves me, it really does! Five weeks ago it was not my friend and didn’t love me at all. Too much information for you, I assume. 🙂
I thought this journey would be extremely difficult and at first it was a bit difficult, but I learned to take it one day at a time. I am learning the ins and outs of shopping for this “diet” and it is becoming a bit more natural to search out the right products. Plus, I crave fruits and veggies so much more!
I didn’t go gluten free to lose weight, although most people who do try the gluten free diet do lose weight. I went gluten free to help my digestive system and it’s working. I am so thankful for that!
