I do all of that, but I have yet to cut out grains. I still partake in Quinoa, and brown rice. And I don't have any of the former symptoms I used to have, when I was still eating dairy, sugar, red meat, and any form of processed or refined products. I too was bloated sluggish, and very fatigued. Not any more. Someone here on Spark said something about a neutral diet where you eliminate all, and gradually bring some back like maybe plain yogurt (Greek) in dairy, any of the other things you may have eliminated, then judge reactions from your system. Of course there are tests, that the Doctor can put you through. But you have to admit, this way is way less costly! After I see my Doctor this next Wednesday, I will go by what the numbers say on my blood tests. Then I will gradually introduce some dairy back into my plan. Doubt if I will do it with anything else though. Red meat is definitely gone. I
did have a bit of a stomach ache, not really big and realized I had 2 things that may have caused it, one being the orange I ate in the evening, the other being Stevia the sweetener because of any other additives it may have. I stopped eating the orange. The Stevia has been doing fine.

My nutrition tracker is like GOLD to me.
Our reward is not food, but achievement. Many of us make the mistake of rewarding ourselves with food, isn't that what got us here in the first place?
