New start

Sunday, October 07, 2012

I have been told I had gluten sensitivity for a few years, but since it was not a celiac diagnosis, I thought it was ok to not change things up too

Well, I did a fast thru my church (1/ 2 cup oatmeal for breakfast then for lunch and dinner 1 cup of beans and rice plus lots of water and tea). I was amazed than it was ok to feel hungry and not run to the fridge based on the clock. The following weekend I went to the gluten free expo in Dallas and attended a class. I learned how gluten sensitivity can be incredibly hazardous to my health. Plus, I found a ton of gluten free products to help fill the gap.

So it has been a month and a half, my pain has decreased 50 to 75%, I am 11 pounds lighter and I can sit within arms reach of pizza, cake, all I my trigger foods, and am not tempted at all to stray. If we are at a restaraunt and I cannot find anything on the menu, I can sit at visit and go home and eat(even if I am really hungry. Which is where the fast was so helpful, even though it was not MY plan for the two to go together.

I am doing carbs. I actually eat rice chex with a banana and some stevia for breakfast and it does not cause me to crave carbs and sweets the rest of the day. Amazing.
Rudis has a gluten free tortilla coming out that is actually soft like a real flour tortilla. We go o test them at the expo. Cannot wait for that one. I can live with brown rice wraps, but to get te texture of a soft tortilla will be nice.

Also chipotle is all gluten free except for the burritos and quesadillas.

So I am off the HCG. I am still a believer and knownit can help,but I feel line I am on a lifestlyle change that I can live with forever.

    Glad you found things that are safe for you to eat and can control the urges. I also hate when you can not find foods that you need but you want the texture or suchlike you explained. My problem is dairy
