2Nd Day gluten-free And Bloated

Recommended Posts

I decided to go ahead a give the gluten-free diet a shot even though my blood work was negative. So this is my 2nd day gluten-free and painful stomach bloating started last night. what the heck!?! I haven't introduced anything new, just cut out gluten (i didn't really eat that much of it to begin with). I also have a headache, but I did drink iced tea today and haven't had caffeine in 3 wks.

I had hoped to do a gluten-free trial for at least a month, if not 6 wks to see if there was a difference. Does the bloating mean gluten wasn't really the problem or is it too early to tell?

It's wayyyy too early to tell. You could still be feeling the effects from gluten you ate several weeks ago. Give it a good month (at least) before you decide if it works for you or not. :)

You won't notice much of a change on the 2nd day. Far too soon.

Most likely your body is trying to 'rid' itself of the remaining gluten.

Or you ate something that, even tho you had it before, caused to to go off at it. For example before i went gluten free i could eat all the broccoli i wanted, afterwards i cannot due to bloating it causes. <_<

One day at a time.
