74 days no grain, back to zero

Saturday, October 19, 2013

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-
7482/10-signs-youre-gluten
-intolerant.html
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.

    Yum!! But I know ... grains make me retain water everywhere!! It's rapid feedback that my body does not like them.

    Yes, gyros are the bomb! It's great that you're not beating yourself up over eating the pita! Keep up the good work, sweetie!
