  1. Hello, all, I'm back to give a quick follow up. I haven't had a chance to be around to read much this week, but hope the weekend will allow for that.

    I've been off gluten for five days now, and am noticing many differences (improvements) that in the past I had attributed to my low-carb diet. The swelling in my ankles, feet, and legs has decreased markedly. My whole digestive system is calmer, and I do not feel bloated at all after I eat. In the five days I've been eating this way, I have only had to take my Prilosec twice; the other three days I have been just fine without it. I have much less "brain fog" as well, and generally feel more energetic, less achy. I didn't realize how achy I was all over. I am also having almost no food cravings.

    The one strange thing I've noticed is that I am so sleepy by about 9 p.m. that I just cannot stay awake. It has been my habit to stay up until at least 11, so this is really unusual for me. I also noticed just a little bit of irritability for two days, but that appears to be gone today.

    Also, I have lost five pounds this week. I am very overweight, so this is definitely not a bad thing.

    Best regards,


    I've been gluten free for about 2 weeks now and have noticed that I have been tired alot as well. My guess is my body may be de toxing itself as I have lost a few pounds as well. Anyone know how long it will be before my energy levels are back to normal?

    I also bought a great gluten free cookbook ....i've only made the pumpkin bread so far but it was very good!

    the title is : gluten free baking classics
