I have been gluten free for only a week. However, I already feel so much better!! I can actually eat without getting a terrible stomach ache afterwards. My head seems clearer, concentration is getting better. Chest pains seem to be gone. A coworker told me yesterday that I am losing the bloated look, which I saw, but thought maybe I was imagining it. I have cheek bones again. Lost 3 lbs in the first week, but find that clothes already fit better. My energy level still isn't where I want it, but that can also be from the iron and B12 deficiencies. Once I get more energy I plan on getting more exercise, which I know will help tremendously! Thanks again for this forum!! I was out with my 14yo nephew who was hungry and we weren't close to home, so we went to a 99 restaurant, and I ordered a gluten free burger. I didn't think I had to explain how sick I could get from cross contamination, but, as delicious as the meal was, I did get the stomach pains. I suspect they weren't as careful as they should have been in the kitchen. Next time, I will have my card to show exactly what I need. Lesson learned.
