Hi all, I am so glad to see a Wheat Belly forum here. I started eating wheat-free 2 weeks ago and also re-started Weight Watchers one week ago. I just got the WB book form the library and have almost finished reading it. Received the WB Cookbook in the mail a few days ago and will start reading that next. I first heard about the recommendations to eliminate wheat about 1.5 years ago, but never thought I could live without wheat. I was also skeptical, thinking it was just another fad. The more I read about wheat , the more I figured, if any of the claims are remotely true....what the heck, I'll try no-wheat for one month, and see for myself. Well, after just 4 days, I was AMAZED- I feel full after a reasonable, or even small servings at every meal. I feel FULL! I have never felt full. Maybe stuffed after eating and eating. I thought that I was destined to always battle emotional and addictive eating patterns. I admit, I'm still waiting for the good effects to fade. Is this too good to be true?
I have no intention of stopping this way of eating, as I feel less pain, I sleep better, I have more energy, I am more focused. Really??? After only eliminating wheat! I look forward to following you all on this forum, getting and giving encouragement.

Hi Kal, glad you 'uncloaked' to join in the discussions. I think one of my favourite things about eating low carb/mostly paleo is that I know I can take little breaks when I need to and that it will actually be a relief and pleasure to get back on track. Had two holiday dinners to attend so I knew I'd be eating some things I normally wouldn't but I didn't have any desire to get carried away with over-indulging. I'm lucky I don't have celiac so if I do get a bit of wheat it will mean BS instability and probably some achy joints. Knowing that really helps keep me motivated to eat for health, living painfree and energized...which is what I wish for all of you for the New Year!

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

emoticon Happy to have you aboard this awesome team! Don't be too hard on yourself, we have all been there, the beauty is we have one another for support and sharing. Loving my WB cookbook!!!

Like, this morning, I have a few aches...then I remembered eating some cashews that were coated with sugar yesterday and my BS was a little up from my normal this morning (I am not diabetic, but check it along with my DH who is type 2).

So, even those who commit daily...take one day at a time and we just get back on the horse we feel off of and keep riding! emoticon emoticon

I guess you might say I've been lurking. Sorry...My name is Kal and I have done two rounds of Whole30 and had been doing Paleo 80/20 and have slipped badly the past weeks (holidays) and man does my tummy hurt. ;/

I am excited. I just got the new Wheat Belly cookbook in the mail last night!

VERY excited!
