I recently went Gluten free (paleo approach) in October to lose weight, but what I realized was that when I got rid of the gluten – I felt great. It was the culprit for my constant fatigue that had plagued me since i could remember. I was always tired for no logical reason — no one ever mentioned to look at what I was eating – only that maybe my lifestyle was causing it and I should try meds. 7 days after being off of all gluten – i could feel a fog lift. A palpable feeling — and felt fantastic! I finally lost the last few lbs I had struggled with for years — sleep better, exercise better – you name it! And when I do have a roll or bread or whatever — i feel horrible the next day in all sorts of ways. I call it a gluten hangover! So I think very carefully if what I am considering eating is worth it. Make sure you take the time and read this entire article – it’s good!
SOMETHING YOU’RE EATING may be killing you, and you probably don’t even know it! If you eat cheeseburgers or French fries all the time or drink six sodas a day, you likely know you are shortening your life. But eating a nice dark, crunchy slice of whole wheat bread–how could that be bad for you? Well, bread contains gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, and oats. It is hidden in pizza, pasta, bread, wraps, rolls, and most processed foods. Clearly, gluten is a staple of the American diet. What most people don’t know is that gluten can cause serious health complications for many. You may be at risk even if you don’t have full blown celiac disease. I want to reveal the truth about gluten, explain the dangers, and provide you with a simple system that will help you determine whether or not gluten is a problem for you.
