Some things I've noticed about eating gluten-free:
1. My hip no longer hurts, at all.
2. I have more energy.
3. I've lost two more pounds, for a grand total of 8, so far.
4. I WANT BREAD.
5. I WANT COOKIES.
6. I am more conscious about what I eat.
7. I feel a mental and emotional "fog" beginning to lift.
I know there are gluten-free recipes out there for bread and cookies, etc., but I have yet to find the time to explore that area. My doctor says that I should eat whole, unprocessed foods...pretty much meaning meat, eggs, fruit, veggies and nuts.
This is hard, very hard. But, judging from the way I'm starting to feel, worth every bit of it.
