For Those Who Decided To Be Grain-Free -- How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

How long on average does it take to see results after beginning a grain-free diet?

I've been "gluten-free" for a 1 year. I stopped eating all traces of corn about a month ago (I had a gluten-like reaction!)and I stopped eating rice six days ago. I am also treating all grain like gluten now and have stopped taking any vitamins that have any grain in it. I am not eating any animal products that comes from animals fed grain.

For those of you who decided to be grain-free, how long does it take to see or feel results? 2 months? 8 months? 1 month? 2 weeks?

What kind of results are you hoping to find? I've been mostly grain free for years now. I'm not entirely sure that I've reaped many benefits...mostly I eliminated them because of fear of CC and weight gain. However, I'm considering adding Amaranth back in and possibly eating quinoa for extra nutrients.

About three days after stopping grain I could sleep through the night. If you aren't sensitive to something in the grain then nothing will change.

I was reactive to corn as much as I was to gluten. And I was having a slight reaction to rice. But since my Celiac Disease was "activated," I have become sensitive to probably 40 other foods. Greens make me fall asleep, for example. I was hoping that if I removed all the grains, I would eventually become less sensitive to the other foods.
