I consider this by far the most important thread I have posted on ATS, Why? Well, I feel like a new person.
For approximately 20 years, I have lived with a fogginess and lethargy that I could not relieve myself from, even exercise didn’t seem to eliminate
the issue. I have also dealt with a bit of mild depression from time to time, that I had no idea what caused it. I figured my emotional and physical
state were just normal and somehow related to genetics, also everyday stresses and issues.
A typical day would always start out as OMG it’s time to get up again. Typical morning lag/fogginess until I had a shower and my second espresso.
About 11am I would need another shot of espresso, to keep the wheels turning, then again at 3pm, and finally 6 pm before my workout. Yep, 5 to 6
shots a day. During the course of the day I would get that heavy headed feeling, whole body felt like heavy weight. Forgetfulness often consumed me,
irritability, insecurities came out of nowhere, stupid little things would set me off and small issue seemed rather large at times.
That was 60 days ago, all of those symptoms are gone.
So what have I discovered? Life Changing Food Related Issues.
I know that have found the solution to my anxieties, mild depressions, fogginess and some irritability. I am feeling after 60 days of zero wheat and
gluten, and no GMO products like a new person. All of my fogginess is gone, I am thinking clearly. l have tons of energy. I wake up early in the
morning and have no tired issues throughout the day. Any unfounded insecurities I used to deal with are all gone. Little issues don't bug me anymore
and I laugh a lot more now. And that overwhelming urge to take a nap is gone also, even though I never had the time, lol.
I have tried many things over the years to combat my issues, exercise, herbs, essential oils, nutritional supplements, meditation, you name it I tried
What turned me on to this way of thinking? Synchronicities were overwhelming for about 6 months, so I figured I should try to eliminate these things
from my diet.
Which item caused it?
Wheat, Gluten, or Genetically Modified Foods, I really don’t care because of the way I feel and if you ask me will I ever go back? Hell No!
Will I go in to get tested for Allergies? Why should I, I have figured it out myself, without them poking and prodding.
What does my diet consist of? Everything that is organically grown, no wheat, or gluten anything. Plenty of recipes online and books to use.
How hard was it? It was not easy the first 15 days, but I was determined and even after 10 days I noticed a huge difference. Think about how many
things you eat with wheat in it?
