Crappy Eating

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Crappy eating does not necessarily mean weight gain. All it means is that once it catches up with you it makes you feel, well, crappy.

2 months of crappy eating finally caught up with me on Sunday night, when all of a sudden it dawned on me that the brain fog, the stomach bloat, and the cravings were something that I could probably combat with proper nutrition.

Exercise is not the issue, I've had no changes in my exercise routine. Hiked another 10,000+' mountain last Saturday (actually the same one, but on a longer route).

So, I did some thinking.

Looking back over my food choices these past couple of months I decided that I would experiment by cutting out wheat/gluten for the rest of the month.

Yesterday was my first wheat/gluten free day and I'm already beginning to feel much better. No cravings (yet :)), less bloat, clearer head.

Curious to see where this will lead me.
I'll report back.

Crossing this mountain ridge was my favorite part on last Saturday's hike.

    My son is gluten free and has been for six years now. He can totally feel it when gluten sneaks into his diet. Hope this works for you!

It is something that I have contemplated. Just not sure how I can fit it into my lifestyle.
