I quit the diet. I just cant do it. I was like 2 months in and felt AWFUL. I could barely think, was starving constantly, very low energy, felt like I had mild flu symptoms. I think Im betting off just eating like a normal person.
I had the same thoughts as RiceGuy ( a few posts after this quoted post). From the descrpton of what you were eating, I think you are glutenng yourself. Be aware that once you give your body a break from gluten, you basically give it a chance to stand up for itself. I think that is what you are experiencing. The oats, the protien bar, produce wax, and your old kitchen equipment are all direct or contaminated sources of gluten. You can send your body back to starvation and malnutrition mode and lessen the symptoms, but you will be doing damage overtime. I would listen to your body. If you are not feeling, it's a sign that you are still ingesting gluten. I would encourage you to try again and start yourself off with a few food items that are COMPLETELY gluten-free and have only a few things on the ingredients list to lessen the chance of cross contamination. This site is an awesome guide to gluten-free versions of common food items and, as for fresh produce, I would find frozen gluten-free veggies and try finding a local produce shop that sells uncoated and unsprayed frut and veg. It is an undertaking, I can't deny that, but I, personally have been rewarded by getting my life, mind, and health back in sound condition.
Best of luck to you,
