I had a Greek pita today. Its been like 74 days since I had any grain flours. There is a place that makes the best gyro's and I was out with my husband and we stopped in and ate.
It was delicious but about an hour later my jeans started feeling super tight and I almost fell asleep on the ride home. So I really can see that grain is not my friend and even though I like the Greek pitas my body does not.
I tried some bread made from tapioca. Surprisingly its pretty good toasted, kinda reminded me of rye bread.
I ran across this yesterday www.mindbodygreen.com/0-
and I think I do have a gluten intolerance, not enough to see it till I stopped eating it.
I have 5 of the signs, and I have an autoimmune condition. I am so glad I started eating this way, I feel so much better every day!
I'm not upset or mad that I "broke my record" I chose to eat it, it was not a cheat or a binge. I just wanted a gyro! I was curious to see if my body would be happy with the bread, and while I did not get diarrhea or stomach cramps or anything horrible immediately, I did feel bloated and very tired about an hour after. And I did end up going to the bathroom about 3 hours later, sorry for the yuck talk. I definitely feel better when I don't eat grains.
