Nothing Tastes Better Than Not Being Sick Feels

You actually have to eat healthier, if you want to be healthier. There’s no trick.

I am healthier now that I’m gluten free because I changed my diet completely, rather just replacing wheat with gluten free products.  I eat a lot more fresh food than I used to. I also started eating less. I didn’t lose a lot of weight at first but after a month or two I started noticeably slimming down.

I used to have many nights spent in the bathroom and days of discomfort and fogginess but now that I’m gluten free, I’ve started to feel like myself again.  It was worth every second of the sadness and hunger I felt.

If you know that wheat is making you sick, don’t put off going Gluten Free any longer. Feeling better is worth it.

Share your story. Is gluten making you sick? Having you been trying to give it up? If you have you successfully given up gluten, do you feel healthier? Have you lost weight?

  1. I’m a week in! I’m also vegan, but I’ve been doing that for about two years. I’m encouraged to hear you began losing weight after some time. I guess it takes a while? I have ten extra pounds and my weight hasn’t budged. Mainly, I’m interested in how going gluten free might affect some arthritis pain that I have. My digestion has always been fine, so I’m not sure I’m sensitive to wheat or not. I do have that belly!!

    1. That’s great that you’re already a week in Susan 🙂 You never know, unless you try 🙂 I hope you start feeling better. I’m sure that 10 pounds will be gone in no time 🙂 Thanks for commenting 🙂

  2. Great post! I have Celiac Disease and once the doctor told me what was making me feel sick, I cut out gluten immediately. I’ve never cheated once (even though it was difficult at first living in a college dorm room) because like you said “nothing tastes better than not being sick feels.”

    1. Thanks Kaila 🙂 I’ve cheated once or twice but regretted it immediately. Just had check 😉 Yep it still makes me sick 🙁 I won’t do that again 🙂 Thanks for commenting 🙂

  3. The title of this post is so right on. I’ve recently gone gluten free (and a couple other things) and I feel so great now. I’ve also lost a huge amount of weight and bloating. It’s so amazing how quickly things can change when we can figure out which are the things that hurt us. 🙂

  4. I am just starting my gluten-free journey and I am not totally there yet. I am determined to get there, though. I am plagued by migraines and tummy troubles I am positive are caused from gluten intolerance or at least sensitivity. It is a hard transition but I am determined to do this, because I am tired of being miserable!

  5. Good work 🙂 . I have been investigating my diet and like you stated not just replacing but a new way of eating and thinking about food .
    Like your posts very much , many thanks for posting them 🙂 .

    What a really good and healthy observation.
    Very nice natural pic too. You look content in the mountains. When I visited Canada about 14 years ago I thought the landscape to be just breathtaking.
