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.
