Hi I'm Kathy
« on: April 20, 2013, 04:51:48 PM »
Thanks for setting up this forum, Rita!

My DH went wheat-free after reading Dr. Davis' Wheat Belly book 10 months ago. He has reached his goal weight after losing 32 lbs. by being WF. In addition, being WF has resulted in his blood pressure returning to normal. He was very close to needing high blood pressure meds this time last year.

I am almost wheat-free except for my breakfast cereal (Cheerios) which I buy in bulk at BJ's. I really prefer a dry cereal with cold milk for breakfast and need an affordable alternative (very tight budget) and I don't like a hot breakfast. In spite of breakfast being my only downfall I have still noticed improvements in my health. More than 15 years ago I was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome (SjS) & Fibromyalgia (FM). After eliminating all other sources of wheat around Oct 2012 I have not had any painful & fatiguing FM flares. I still need eye drops to treat my dry eyes from SjS but my need for them has been reduced. I am looking forward to participating in this forum.

Welcome Kathy!

Great news on improving your fibromyalgia. 

I love cereal too, but I'm doing the weight loss aspect, so I'm not doing replacement carbs.   But I'm pretty sure that if you are not doing the weight loss aspect, and just going the wheat free route, you can just go with gluten free cereals.
