Mia,

What I learned is that your body has been malnourished and not properly processing what you eat. Your bod has to re-learn how to process food. You may also have some secondary food intolerances popping up. I needed to give up all grains for about 6 months. Once I gave up the grains the bloaty gassy feeling went away.

Also might help to take probiotics and enzymes.

I didn't have to give up all grains, but I only eat rice and corn. Lots of people struggle with corn but I don't. I use rice pasta, corn tortillas, and I use rice flour to make pancakes.

It takes time. 5 days is not enough time to heal years of damage. I'm on week 6 and my bloating is just starting to go down now.

Most of us, or many of us, cut out hard to digest things like soy, dairy and nightshades for awhile until we heal. Eat a simple clean diet of healthy foods like meat, fruits, veggies and you will heal faster. Don't eat gluten free foods right now like cookies and breads. They are too complex for your healing tummy.

Look at my post about unexpected results from being gluten free. I went through a few weeks where I couldn't eat ANYTHING without getting sick. I just kept on going and now it's resolving. Not a hundred percent yet but way way way better.

Your life will change drastically and it just needs time.

Not sure of your daily schedule, but I find that if I walk for 30 minutes a day it makes a big difference. I noticed a difference right away after going gluten free, so by day 5 you should have too, but everyone is different.

I have to respectfully disagree with that. Some people don't feel a difference for awhile and some of us get sicker before we get better. Depends on how sick you were and how long you've been undiagnosed. I've had celiac my whole life and was misdiagnosed until recently at age 40. I felt a difference in anxiety and shortness of breath, but everything else got worse for awhile. Statements like you "should" make me nervous because with celiac there are no shoulds. It manifests differently for everyone.

I am currently at week2+ 2 days and the bloating has almost completely lifted. The first 5-7 days of being gluten free however were realllllly bad and I lost about 10 lbs. There was (is) definitely an adjustment period for my body.
