Gluten-Free Week 4 Update
I hope everyone is enjoying this lovely Monday. I wanted to give everyone an update on my gluten-free experiment. It has been 4 weeks today and I honestly can’t say that I have noticed much difference at all. I wanted to wait for 4 weeks and then try having gluten again to see if there was any reaction. Last night Neil and I ordered pizza while watching football and I ate that to reintroduce it to my diet. Today I feel the same. I know that it can sometimes be a delayed reaction, so I will be attentive to how I am feeling today and tomorrow.
The main thing that I noticed as a difference was that my physical appearance stayed more consistent than when I am eating gluten. This may not be due to gluten at all, however, and is quite possibly the result of cutting bread and flour out of my diet. I did not eat a large amount in the first place, but completely removing it seemed to decrease the fluctuations that I noticed from day to day in how my clothes fit.
After cutting out gluten, I noticed that I developed daily headaches for about the past 2 weeks. I have no idea what could be causing these since I have kept everything else in my diet the same. Again, I am not attributing them to gluten, but it is just something I noticed. I have one today as well. Hmmm.
As much as I know you love reading about my food sensitivity experiments, you must be even more excited to read about my weekend. I will make sure to keep you updated on the whole gluten thing. Yesterday was December 1st and I got this gem for Neil and I:
