Introduce Yourself to the Wheat Free Forum / Re: Hello, I'm new
« on: September 13, 2015, 05:47:00 PM »
Hi Kathi,

I am new to this, too. I suffer from wheat intolerance, and am about 100 lbs overweight at age 59. My absolutely best solution to live without wheat and grains etc, is to picture them as poison. I have a very vivid imagination, and am picturing myself keeling over if I eat grains. Since wheat indulgence has landed me in the hospital via ambulance before, it's not easy to imagine this food killing me within minutes.

Find out what image will bring you to a screeching halt. Autosuggestion is an amazing tool to achieve all sorts of things.

You can do it. Read, Read, Read. Educating yourself is very, very important. The more you understand what is going on, the easier it will be following any rules. :)

Thanks, y'all. I plan to work my way through the blog. Unfortunately I don't have nearly the time I would like to have to learn, but I have done Atkins before, and it is by now real easy to simply leave out all altered, processed and "enhanced" products.

Avocados, Bacon, Cheeses are my friends. I also enjoy many (most) fruits, so I feel confident I can detox rather happily. :) The only annoyance is that husband eats all poisons (wheat, grains, cookies, cakes cereals, etc), and I have to basically cook two sets of meals. But it's worth the effort.

I'll post a success story soon, I am sure. :)

Hi all.

This Labor Day (last Monday) I had a craving for sandwiches and sugared corn flakes. I ate to my heart's content, not to much but more than usual (I am gluten intolerant and have wheat sensitivities so I do not eat much of it). Over night, I could not sleep, because my belly under my left rib was so hard and swollen and painful, that I could not sleep.

On Tuesday, I made it through the work day by not eating, just drinking to flush all that poison out. I felt dizzy, I felt like I was dying, and was sooo tired. I spent another night not sleeping, with foot cramps, and stomach pains.

On Wednesday, I ate an avocado and a banana over the course of the day - and Thursday I felt better than I had in weeks.

I told a friend about the odd experience and she recommended to read about Wheat Belly. I am on day two reading the book and am fascinated.

So here I am, eager to read and learn from others' experience.

It's good to meet y'all.

Liz
