For Those Who Decided To Be Grain-Free -- How Long Does It Take To See Results?
0

5 posts in this topic

How long on average does it take to see results after beginning a grain-free diet?

I've been "gluten-free" for a 1 year. I stopped eating all traces of corn about a month ago (I had a gluten-like reaction!)and I stopped eating rice six days ago. I am also treating all grain like gluten now and have stopped taking any vitamins that have any grain in it. I am not eating any animal products that comes from animals fed grain.

For those of you who decided to be grain-free, how long does it take to see or feel results? 2 months? 8 months? 1 month? 2 weeks?

What kind of results are you hoping to find? I've been mostly grain free for years now. I'm not entirely sure that I've reaped many benefits...mostly I eliminated them because of fear of CC and weight gain. However, I'm considering adding Amaranth back in and possibly eating quinoa for extra nutrients.

I did it for about 4 months and didn't see any results.

About three days after stopping grain I could sleep through the night. If you aren't sensitive to something in the grain then nothing will change.

I was reactive to corn as much as I was to gluten. And I was having a slight reaction to rice. But since my Celiac Disease was "activated," I have become sensitive to probably 40 other foods. Greens make me fall asleep, for example. I was hoping that if I removed all the grains, I would eventually become less sensitive to the other foods.

    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
    • I have been recently diagnosed with celiac. It causes terrible attacks that start with ear ringing (?) Anyway, I too, cannot eat Budding's lunch meat. I have discovered that it causes a gluten reaction. I did not realize it until the third time eating it as I am vegetarian. But as I literally can eat almost nothing now, I was craving "real food". I ate this lunch meat thinking it was safe and voila! Celiac attack. Swollen, painful ankle, ringing ears, itching mouth, nausea, anxiety, going to the bathroom way too much, etc...I also cannot toletare corn starch so, that might be it? So, I agree, I definitely cannot eat that nor can I tolerate 20 ppm. I empathize with all of you. Looks like potatoes and tea, at least till I learn to cook.  :-p
