  1. For me, at first my sugar cravings were crazy! I had a sweet tooth before and then it just went nuts! I went through a period where I didn't knnow what to eat and was craving sugar, so I would have ice cream for dinner! It finally balanced out and I actually can't have high levels of sugar now! funny. Now, since working hard to balance out my diet, I am eating a lot more soy products, vegetables and I added red meat to my diet after 15 years without. With my diet so restricted, I figured I had better add the meat back in. Now I just try hard to eat a balanced diet, although it doesn't always work. gluten-free isn't exactly CONVENIENT for someone who eats on the run all the time! -Sara p.s. thanks for posting on here! It's so good to hear what other people are going through.
  2. The most noticeable side effect I experienced was my sugar cravings going through the roof! I have a sweet tooth to begin with. When I cut out all the gluten products (i.e. carbs, bread) my body started to crave sugar like I never have before! It is most definitely a process. You body has to balance itself out and you have to balance out your diet. It took me almost 6 months before I started to really eat a balanced diet again. I had to force myself to find alternative foods and new favorites. I have to remember to eat a balanced diet. The other thing that I have found to be the best help is exercise!! Working out helps to flush the system and regulate things. I feel SO differently when I am working out regularly versus when I am not. I have been gluten-free for a little over a year and I am still learning what works for me. It seems that it is different for each individual. I reccommend cutting out as much as you can and working to re-introduce things one at a time. It's not fun to guess, but after a while you will balance out and be eating and feeling better.
