What I Ate Wednesday…

Posted on

…too much gluten. As my best friend Jen said to me “When will you learn?”

I do believe I’ve finally learned. I gave up gluten for a month back in April and honestly never felt better. Then I reintroduced a little, and felt fine. Then I continued to eat it and it has caught up to me.

Bloat.

Tummy trouble.

You name it. Basically, I feel like ass.

I thought I was going to miss my long run on Saturday morning because I spent just about the same amount of time in the bathroom as I did preparing for the run… mega bad.

Yesterday I made it a point to tell both her and the bf – NO MORE GLUTEN.

One day without and I swear I feel better already. It’s like my body is thanking me for finally listening to it.

The bf and I went out to dinner last night and as I drooled over the amazing draft beer choices at the restaurant we went to – I chose an Angry Orchard cider instead, with a gluten free pizza.

It’s time to stick with this for real – I told Jen, and the bf, and I’m telling any of you who are friends with me on MyFitnessPal – if you see food with gluten in it on my food log – PLEASE YELL AT ME. I clearly need some serious tough love.

Have you ever removed a food from your diet only to realize you feel so much better, then reintroduced it only to realize you feel like crap? What did you do?

  1. Oh yes, I have limited my gluten intake by 90% and feel so much better. I do occasionally go off the beaten path and next day feel horrible. Good to see I finally listen to my body :)

  2. Congrats on committing to gluten-free! I’ve noticed not-so-hot tummy feelings after eating popcorn, but having already given up gluten I’m not willing to part with my favorite food…so I’m just hoping as I keep eating GF, my other digestive issues will work themselves out. In the meantime, I just finished a bowl of popcorn—no regrets!

  3. Ugh I did the same thing with whole 30 as I have added some dairy and grains back into my diet I’m just getting sick and feeling like crap. I’m also starting to gain weight in my belly…blah I don’t need it so I’m opting back ti Paleo if not strict whole 30.
