I took my dog off gluten products and he has been much healthier; shiny coat, less allergies, more energy, etc…  As a result, I have considered going off gluten myself but it’s in so many products I feel like I would be depriving myself and making things so difficult that I would be doomed to fail.  P.S. I love bread!

I’ve started reading it too, and it makes a lot of good points!  I have a wheat allergy, so I’m supposed to avoid it, and I really am making a good effort to do so. Some days are difficult, because i LOVE baked goods, so I’ve compromised, I only eat something that is really worth it (like my friends cupcakes she makes) otherwise I stay wheat free and feel really good.

@Seashells7:  You’d be surprised how good Girlfriend baked goods can be; run a google search for Girlfriend bakeries in your area and see if you can get a birthday cake that won’t slow you down! I bake all the time with Girlfriend flour (oat and rice are my favorite), and don’t really sacrifice anything.  Sometimes the texture is a little off, but the taste is still great!

I avoid it because there is growing research on cold urticaria (which I have) being from gluten intolerance.

I was told the same thing by my doctor. I just wasn’t loosing weight! Check out my “wheat free” Pinterest board… http://pinterest.com/lindsk16/wheat-free/

I do have a small amount of wheat weekly. I didn’t want my body to hoard it if I did have any. I feel SO much better!!!!

I got rid of gluten two years ago and almost immediately felt results, just like you. No significant weight loss, but getting almost completely away from processed foods will contribute to that. I love how I feel now that I don’t have those icky side effects from gluten! I think Wheat Belly has a lot of great information and I would like to take the grain-free plunge eventually. Comgrats!

Oh, wow, wheat bread is the only bread I’ll buy for sandwiches.  I’ve heard white bread is the worst for you.

@Rubbs:  yea me too. I’m pretty confused lol I have always been advised to get 100% whole wheat or whole grain bread. I prefer grain but I don’t know if grain and wheat are different.

@Rubbs:  Wheat is better for you than white but it’s the gluten present in both that seems to be worse.  I am sure OP didn’t switch out wheat bread for white bread, she just gave up breda all together (unless she is eating gluten free bread.)

@soontobemrsm11:  The whole grain indicates that it has a whole form of whatever grains are in the bread; usually a combination of wheat, oat, etc.  100% whole wheat doesn’t have any other types of grains.  Using the whole form of whatever grain you’re consuming is best because the nutrients haven’t been stripped or bleached out of it.

I guess I should clarify too. I gave up wheat, flour, gluten.. No bread, pasta, or any of there derivatives.
