Mr. Universe is here with me today to talk about my journey going gluten free. I’ve been gluten free for 7.5 years but I still remember how hard the first month or 7 were for me.
I essentially gave up gluten in wheat, barley, and rye cold turkey. I started feeling better in a week. Despite feeling better I still went through a grieving process over the loss. Sounds ridiculous but I did. I got sad or angry at commercials showing foods I couldn’t eat any more ever for the rest of my life! I was dramatic about it honestly and most of them I wouldn’t have eaten anyway!
For the most part now, I don’t even miss it. I know what I eat impacts how I feel and that helps me do better making healthy decisions about my food. So, if you’ve been told or have think you might feel better going gluten free do it! Grieve the loss and see how much health you have to gain from what ultimately will be an easy change.
