I think now about everything I eat or drink. 

It doesn't mean I always make the most healthy choice, lots of gluten free foods aren't particularly good for you in terms of fat, salt, sugar etc. content, but that moment of thought beforehand does help me be a little more aware in the moment of what I'm consuming.

Years ago I never gave it a second thought. For some reason I never put on weight so I ate what I liked... :rolleyes:

Oh and I think it's made me more empathetic towards others who are struggling in one way or other. At least I hope so. :)
