I'm on day 3 of gluten. Like I said, it's not bad, just a big bloaty. I guess I'll just have to wait to see if it was Pre-M or gluten sensitivity.

I'm glad for the reminders about Pre-M hunger. It's always helpful to recognize what's happening, so we don't over eat.

Thanks all!

Gwen

I think it's natural to want to eat more on your period. Your body is working harder and losing blood so it needs more nourishment. Before I started on this plan I could tell when I was a few days away from my period because my body would want to eat healthy. It's almost as though my body slightly cleanses and wants to get rid of bad things... Maybe that's weird... Lol. I was going to mention/ask if you only had gluten one day or if you did the full trial cycle.

I also didn't notice the bloating as much during my period. I did seem hungry more though. I agree, try it again later. Plus you have day 4 still with gluten and that may give you more signs that gluten is a problem.

Maybe wait and see when you get your period. I did find on the diet I didn't really get bloated like I used to and the period itself wasn't as bad as it has been in the past. You can also try challenging it again at a later point to see if you can have some 5% of the time.

This week I introduced gluten. So far not bad. A little bloating today (day 3), but nothing uncomfortable. I'll take out of my diet and reintroduce again later.

My question is:

What if the bloating is pre-mentrual cycle? I'm coming up on my time. I don't actually keep track, but I know I haven't had it since being on the diet and I'm on day 25 of the diet.

How can you tell the difference? I've looked through the book and tried to look it up via yahoo.com, but no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Gwen
