#815392 How Many Do Whole Foods Only?

Posted by heathenly on 01 August 2012 - 03:51 PM

For a short person, 7 lbs. is probably equal to 20 on a taller version:)


Preaching to the choir. I'm just under 5' tall. My 15 lb weight gain has been devastating.

But cutting out wine?? Don't get carried away!

#814459 1 Wk. Gluten-Free: Lack Of Appetite Normal?

Posted by heathenly on 28 July 2012 - 05:11 PM

I'm one week off gluten (again) after my brief gluten challenge, and I am just NOT hungry. I've been forcing myself to eat a couple of small meals each day because my stomach rumbles and I can tell my body is hungry, but the thought of food usually makes me feel slightly gross. I'm making delicious homemade mostly whole-foods meals, but nothing really tastes amazing, and after I eat I feel like I could have just as happily NOT eaten. Also, it's been a week, and the bloating is just now abating. Is this normal; my gi tract just trying to heal? Or does the loss of appetite stay?

I'm not complaining too much... after all, I have 15 pounds of gluten weight to lose, and a closet full of clothes that I miss wearing... (also miss having cheekbones and one chin)

#812929 Already Feel So Much Better

Posted by heathenly on 22 July 2012 - 08:16 PM

It's okay to mention gluten here. ;)


And it's such a relief!

Thanks, everyone. My gluteny friends wouldn't understand what it is to not feel like taking a nap all weekend. :)

#810224 Before You Knew It Was Gluten...?

Posted by heathenly on 10 July 2012 - 09:02 PM

I guess this is a two-part question:

1. Once you figured out gluten was the problem and you'd had some time to look back, did you find yourself remembering symptoms and reactions from long, long ago, and suspect you'd had a gluten issue for far longer than you'd originally thought?

And,

2. Did you notice that perhaps you unconsciously preferred a lower-gluten diet (just weren't that "into" wheat-based carbs), as if your body was trying to protect you with a natural disinterest or aversion?

Just curious. I'm looking back and realizing there were subtle clues...
