Ahhh... .easy day. I have not eaten gluten in years. Boy, did life change when I found out I had Celiac disease. First...the withdrawal symptoms from giving up gluten were awful. I never want to go through anything like that again. I felt like I was starving and one cracker, cookie, anything with gluten would stop the hunger. Right after eating I'd feel like I was starving. I truly understand an addict saying "Just a little bit to stop me from being sick". I didn't give in.
After the first couple of weeks of going gluten free my body started to respond in normal ways for the first time in my life. My digestive system had been shot completely from childhood and it was starting to work again. I was amazed! I still am.
So this lesson is a good reminder for me for why I gave up gluten.
