Day 3 of 30 is donezo! Here’s how G-free-3 went down!
2 pcs bacon
1 very small potato
2 tbsp gluten-free gravy (cornstarch + chicken stock)
2 thin slices of cheddar cheese – PM snack
** at this point in the day I’ve had approx 97g carbs and 67g protein. Damn Mt. Dew.
I have got to kick that habit and my protein would well exceed my carbs.
Supper - tilapia and 2 bites of a potato
Snack - air popped popcorn
In 3 days time, as far as processed sugar goes – I’ve only had two Starburst (& obviously Mt. Dew). For me – Miss Sugar Addict of the Year – that’s huge. I am now fully aware that TONS of candies do NOT have gluten in them but I’m on a mission to be healthier all around – so I’m refraining.
Did I mention that there are Dove candies 2 feet from me and candy canes too and I haven’t touched them? Seriously. I’m in shock.
I took Magnesium and Vitamin D for supplements today.
As far as how I feel? I’d say today I feel “good”. I do not feel hungry. This morning I was a little dizzy but I’ve done some research on how fast a person starts to feel different or how the first few days go and of course – it’s different for everyone.
BUT the majority say at Day 4 a person can feel better. Noticeably.
Also – as each day passes it gets better.
And that for some it can take longer depending on how much gluten you had in you and how long your body takes to “detox” from it.
Just like caffeine and suger – your body can go through a sort of withdrawal.
So there’s that. Nothing too exciting.
Oh and um – I haven’t lost any weight.
Son of a bitch. I thought by today I’d be a size 2.
I have to say this doesn’t seem too hard. Now – I may be saying that because it’s only Day 3 and I think I’m still cool at this point but you guys – the evidence – is so overwhelming. You cannot imagine the comments, emails and personal testaments I am getting when I tell people I’m doing this.
I’m fairly convinced that even without an intolerance diagnosis – that gluten isn’t good for anyone.
Goodness – that sounded a bit over the top, didn’t it?
I’ve never done a food experiment or elimination diet for my health – meaning migraines, fatigue, stomach issues.
I’ve always cut foods and gone on diets to lose weight first and foremost – and they never lasted.
This feels different. This feels “medical”. Prescribed even. By myself – el doctore.
And there’s this teeny voice in the back of my head – a little ray of hope – that’s whispering,
“What if this works? I mean really works? Holy butt darts, can you even imagine what that would be like?”
So I forge on.
Anyway – remind me I said all this crazy ass shit when I’m whining on Day 15, mmkkaayy?
