I have mentioned before that I thought I possible had a wheat intolerance and was going to research more on it.
I have been doing a lot of reading on the Internet about this and the more I read the more convinced I am that I am indeed intolerant to wheat.
To see if I am I did a little experiment over the last week....it was highly scientific....
I totally went off of wheat for 4 days the results......
I felt great after the second day of being off of wheat.
Then yesterday I reintroduced bread again at lunch time.
Guess what happened!?!?!
Within an hour of eating the bread I started to experience some lovely and familiar symptoms... gas, pain in the upper stomache area, bloating, cravings for more, more, more and a drippy nose.
Maybe.... but I don't think so!!!
I am going to the Nurse Practitioner in a couple of weeks and I plan on discussing this along with other things with her but regardless of what the outcome of that appointment is I think I will be staying away from wheat because it is just not worth the nagging symptoms I have when I do eat it.
As for eating in general...I have been on track 100%! Yeah me!!!
I have a challenge on myself for this week. It is to eat clean completely and so far so good.
It is made easier by the amazing ideas and inspiration that I am gaining from the Eat Clean Diet Recharged book by Tosca Reno that I received from the Sweet's Free September Contest.
I love this way of life and would recommend the books to anyone that is trying to improve their health.
This week begins the party season for our house.... we have a birthday each month from now until March; a couple of birthdays in 2 of the months...then throw in Christmas and New Years and I have a whole lot of opportunities to show myself that I am worth the effort it takes to eat right!!! I am looking forward to the challenge!
