@Miss Sardine:  Good for you and good luck! I’ve just started on the Paleo diet myself – which is pretty much like eliminating flour and sugar from diet. I started a few days ago and already notice a slight difference. It’s a few days before my TOM and usually I crave and inhale anything starchy, carby and sugary – but not this time…

Keep us updated on your progress!

That’s great. I’ve cut out sugar before and it made me feel great and I lost weight quickly, although it was difficult at first. Right now, I’m on a diet that excludes both flour and sugar, although I am allowing myself a “cheat” day once every 2 weeks and I’ll likely have sugar on that day. Anyways, I’d love to read about your experience!

You feel like crap because your body needs carbs!

maybe it’s too much of a change too quickly.

@Miss Sardine:  I tried this a few weeks ago and went through the same thing ๐Ÿ™ You are going through with draws. I was seriously shaking and felt awful. Are you also exercising? If you really want to do this you MUST decrease your activity for the first few weeks.

@Miss Sardine:  Well, maybe this will motivate you: I did it for 2 weeks and lost like 8 lbs or so. I stopped it and immediatly gained it back and a few more lbs. I feel fat, my clothes are tight and I look awful. 

I keep trying to get back on it but I always seem to have a “life” excuse. I think I am going to try it again but not be so restrictive…

I’m sorry, but I disagree those who advocate adding flour back into your diet. There is no basis for this. Our bodies don’t “need” wheat flour. There is no nutrient in wheat flour that can not be found elsewhere in our diets.

Anyway, if you research a little, you will find that wheat has drug like properties and is believed by many to be highly addictive (feel free to look it up yourself). What you’re experiencing is likely withdrawl. If you are serious about sticking with a wheat free/sugar free diet (which, IMO, is very healthy), then you will have to stick it out until this passes. 

Good luck!
