Hello from Lynda (Fl)
« on: May 05, 2013, 12:51:50 PM »
My DH and I have been wheat-free since Oct. 2011.  We have both seen improvement in joint pain and I have seen my TSH drop from over 5 to 1.0, have halved my BP med. and had my c-reactive protein drop dramatically (which astounded my dr. since it was normal to begin with). I am glad to see some of my favorite posters from the WB blog site.  Some of the off-topic discussions kept me out of the hospital and helped me improve other health problems, thank you all again.  I'm hoping to find great ideas for low-carb here as that's my next challenge.  Maybe that with get rid of the rascally belly fat and help my cholestoral numbers!  I have to admit I love potatoes more than I did wheat.  Listening to others stories on these forums really helps.

Welcome Lynda  :)

Finding the source and balance for good carbs is also part of my journey. I've only been wheat free for a little while, but like you, would like to know better ways to consume enough good carbs. There's a balance in there somewhere, and we're all out to find it!

Happy to hear that you've had so many good results so far. You might want to spend a little time watching the video that Rita posted in the Food Element section under "sugar". It takes awhile to watch, but it's really worth it!

Welcome, Lynda! My DH struggles with potatoes, too. He loves them!
