Hello! I'm Heather, 35, and I have not been diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. I recently went to an endocrinologist for my PCOS and that led to a nutritionist, who suggested I try going gluten-free to see if it helped with losing weight.
The first month, I lost 11 pounds, which I'm really happy about. I had also cut my calories, which helped with the weight loss, too. But I noticed that some things that had bothered me, like bloating and gastro distress, disappeared when I eliminated gluten. So, I'm sticking with it.
I was never a big bread eater, so I thought it would be an easy adjustment. It wasn't! I didn't realize that gluten really is in everything! It's been frustrating and requires a greater focus on ingredients, but that's a good thing anyway.
I look forward to learning more from this group as everyone seems to have a different story and perspective.
